For years I've struggled to know how to display the many Christmas cards we receive, and I've found a solution for this year! I created a hanger using simple things that I already had on hand, and it cost almost nothing. I hung it in our mudroom, so we can easily see the cards every day. I love how it turned out!
Here's what you'll need:
-Yarn in the color of your choice. I bought mine from Walmart here.
-Branch cut from my backyard
-Mini binder clips - available on Amazon here
-Wood beads - available on Amazon here
-Greens and dried orange slices
I cut strips of yarn in the sizes that I wanted and tied them to the branch until it looked like this:
I also created tassels following this tutorial. They were really easy to make and aren't perfect, but that's ok! I added two wood beads and tied the tassels to the hanging strings.
I added greenery to the branch with floral wire, then hung dried orange slices to the branch using fishing line. I use fishing line all the time to hang things, because it's nearly invisible and usually pretty strong.
You could make this hanger in any size that you'd like, and you could use a fun color for the yarn as well. Now I know where to put those Christmas cards that are starting to come in the mail! Yay!
