It’s that time of year when the holiday cards start arriving! This year I decided I want to display each card and incorporate them as part of my Christmas decorations. The variation of the cards + the clothespin decoration combined to make an eye catching arrangement.
- Wooden clothespins
- Christmas themed scrapbook paper by Martha Stewart
- Snowflake buttons. I found mine at Michaels, called Dress It Up Sparkle Flakes.
- Silver glitter paint. I used Craftsmart.
- Paint brush
- Tacky Glue
Start by painting each side of the clothespin with the silver glitter paint. Depending on how much sparkle you want, you may need a few coats.
Next, cut strips of scrapbook paper. Each piece should be the size of the flat surface of the clothespin. Glue two strips per clothes pin, one on each side, and let dry.
The snowflakes I used are actually buttons, so I had to cut them down to make the back a smooth surface. Glue a snowflake on the top of each clothespin.
Clip each card and hang from the garland.
