I absolutely love getting my mail in December, because every day there are more adorable holiday cards from my friends and family. Around now is when I start getting a twinge like, “oh man, I really should send out cards…” because everyone else’s cards inspire me! I love displaying the cards, and in years past I’d tape each card up in my kitchen. It looked cute but the cards ALWAYS fell off the cupboards and walls. This year I wanted to do something that would hold up a little better, and decided to whip out some cute clips made out of felt and clothespins.
Paint and paintbrushes
Cookie cutters in holiday shapes
Command hooks (not pictured)
Start by painting your clothespins.
While they dry, trace the cookie cutter shapes onto felt (OR if you’re some kind of artist or something, draw them freehand). Cut the shapes out.
Add any embellishments you might want. I put little ornaments on my trees, made my candy canes multicolored, stuff like that.
Put glue on the top of your clothespins.
Firmly press each felt cut-out onto the glue strip on the clothespins.
Using my command hooks, I strung up strands of ribbon in rows on my hall closet. Then I hung up the clips and cards!
I really like how they turned out! And, best part, they don’t fall down like the taped cards!
If you have any questions, let me know. Have fun!
