I just love getting Holiday cards! Especially nowadays, with most correspondence being digital, getting a real, honest-to-goodness card in the mail just seems extra special. Last year, Noodle and I saw a similar card display for sale in a store, and I thought, "Geez, I could MAKE that!" So I did. And so can you, if you're so inclined! This project takes about 15 minutes to make, and is pretty easy. Here's what you'll need:
- An old picture frame (no glass needed, so this is a perfect way to use up a frame that had the glass broken
- a piece of cardboard
- burlap or other fabric (maybe a holiday print?)
- twine, hemp or string
- a hot glue gun
- a staple gun
|First, I used hot glue to cover a piece of cardboard cut to the|
size to fit in my picture frame with burlap fabric.
|Next, I wrapped the string around the cardboard in a random pattern.|
|After you tie off the string on the back, slip the cardboard into|
the back of your frame.
|Use a staple gun to staple the cardboard to the frame.|
|Finished! I put mine up on a pretty easel.|
If I were going to make this again, one thing I would do differently is I would use a bigger frame. This one is 11x14, and it ended up not being big enough to hold all of our cards. I might make a bigger one next year.
Now, I must get back to the kitchen! There is a Solstice Feast to prepare. Wishing you all a Most Blessed Solstice!
