Christmas Craft- Holiday Card Display

Happy Monday, friends!! Can you believe there are only 12 more days until Christmas?! Well, I have been trying to find a cute way to display all of the Christmas cards we get in the mail this year and I came across a post by my fellow Texan blogger friend Lindsey at The Bargain Blonde
( ) and I thought it was super cute so I had to do it myself. It is really easy and turned out so cute!

What you will need:
-Christmas ribbon (thick is better)
-Mini Clothespins
-A bow...or if you are super crafty- make your own. I found one for 99 cents and I can not make good bows.

What to do:

Cut the ribbon as long as you want it. I hung mine from the refridgerator door but Lindsey hung hers from an actual door. Our doors are too tall so I opted for the fridge. Tape one end of the ribbon at the top of the fridge door (over the edge) and attach the bow with hot clue or tape. (sorry for the terrible blackberry pics!)

Use the clothespins to attach the cards to the ribbon. I used red & green clothes pins and separated the cards by an inch.

Here is a close up of the clothespins:

And WA-LA, you have yourself a homemade Christmas card display!
