I am preparing to host a Christmas Cookie Decorating Play-date and have been trying to decorate and organize a little more. Today I decided I would make a Christmas Card holder out of ribbon over one of the door frames. Usually our cards are lined up on the piano and fall down and eventually become a big mess.
This was so easy to do. It might have taken 10-15 minutes tops.
Supplies needed: A lot of ribbon, I am guessing 15-20 yards depending on the size of your door frame and if you make bows or not. I have a 50 yard roll of brown ribbon with Christmas trees printed on it that I bought at Sam's Club on clearance years ago. You will also need clear thumbtacks to hang the ribbon and paperclips or clothespins to clip the cards onto the ribbon. I have some nice clear clips that worked perfectly for attaching the cards.
This was super easy to do, but I did have the help of my husband who is a pretty good bow maker from his years of teaching floral design in his horticulture program. I simply tacked the ribbon to the molding, then tacked up the bows. Then I clipped the cards onto the ribbon. I think it looks so pretty and now we can really enjoy our Christmas cards. It was such a bonus too that I didn't have to trek out in our deep snow and fight the Christmas shopping crowds to find the supplies. I had everything on hand.
