Card Hanger Crafty Craft
Start with this:
Oh and a little of this never hurts:
And an hour and you get a little crafty craft that actually gets to stay in my own house!! This time of year I get pretty wrapped up in doing things for others that I never really even think about finding the time to do things for me! For years and years I’ve wanted something cute to put my Christmas cards up in. I send out about 50 every year along with a little photo of the littles and absolutely LOVE getting cards in the mail. I don’t usually get too many since apparently they’re going out of style (whatevers!!!) so I knew that I didn’t need anything big and extravagant and I think this little thing will do the trick for sure!
Using some paint markers in festive colours I decorated the hoop and some pins and some cute little retro style ornaments and then heated up the hot glue gun! I also picked up some cute holiday wood letters last year in a discount bin and felt they would fit perfectly on my card hanger.
I know I’ve seen something similar at Homesense
admittedly waaaay more extravagant than mine is but if I recall the one at the store was about $19 and mine cost less than $5!
So send me some cards and you’ll make me a happy girl!
Oh, and I just want to point out this card:
This is from my friend Robynn’s brilliant mind. She makes the BESTEST cards ever. I made this one at her house but I love it so much I’m hanging it on my fridge until at least Valentines day!
It was nice doing something for me for a change, but I still have a few small things left to get done so I’m going to crack the whip!!
May the force be with you!
