A Little Christmas Craft

How about a little Christmas craft today?All you need is a dozen clothespins, an embroidery hoop, wide ribbon, scrapbook paper, mod podge and a hot glue gun.Simply cut the scrapbook paper into strips wide enough to cover the top of the clothespin. Apply the paper to the pin using mod podge. If you'd like, you can sand and distress the edges of the paper.Hot glue the clothes pins onto the hoop varying the direction.
Tie on the ribbon to hang the hoop.
Now you have a pretty little display for those Christmas cards that will soon be arriving in your mailbox.

My friend blogged today an almost identical post! You must be on the same thought wave. Great minds think alike I guess.

Such a great idea! I never know what to do with all those cards. Can't wait to try this!

Joy said...

I'm totally doing this. I have the wire one your suppose to stick the cards into. They fall out of that all the time.
Thank you for the inspiration.
