Christmas Card Display Board

I haven't had very much time lately to do anything new for Christmas, but then the Christmas cards started rolling in!

We decorated for Christmas while Danny's parents were here, so everything is out all over the house. It's for that very reason that I realized we didn't have anywhere to put our Christmas cards as they came to the house.

So I put together this adorable Christmas card holder with a piece of leftover wood Danny had in the garage and some clothespins. I absolutely adore the size, and I hope it will hold most of the cards we receive.

I went out to the garage and spray painted the board in white and one side of the clothespins in red. The other side I left plain so the adhesive would stick better - and it really did.

Once they were dry, I brought them inside and hot glued the clothespins to the board. It only took a couple of minutes for them to dry completely and be solid.

I have a couple of Christmas stencils that I love, so I used the holly berries and painted them and the letters in green to stand out on the white.

In all, it took me about an hour and a half to do the entire project. I love the way it turned out, and I already have ideas for how to do another one or two.

That's the problem with fun projects - you want to do more!
