The amount of cards we receive each holiday season vary, but when we do, I always like to display them in a fun way. Sometimes I’ll arrange them on the fridge along with some festive window clings, and sometimes I’ll clip them to a pretty ribbon on the wall. This year, I decided to get a little fancy, yes, a little early :-). I created a greeting card holder using a branch I snapped off of a tree. This craft is an easy way to add some holiday flare to living spaces. Depending on how many cards that come in, you can make more or combine multiple branches to display more cards.
So let’s get started!
Tree branches with a handful of smaller branches
Grosgrain ribbon cut into 2″ lengths
Red Matte spray paint
Glue gun or double stick tape
Small round red ornaments
1. Clean branches & remove any leaves from stem.
2. Spray paint the branches with red paint.
3. Set aside to dry.
4. Take a 2″ ribbon and fold to create a loop.
5. Glue ends together.
6. Flip the greeting card so the reverse side faces you.
7. Take a loop & glue it to the top center of each card.
8. Set aside to dry. Attach loops you’ve created to the other cards.
9. Take the dry painted branches & place on mantelpiece making sure its secure & weighted down.
10. Hang your greeting cards on the branches.
11. Spruce up with Christmas ornaments.
