DIY Christmas Card Display

The Christmas cards are flowing in at a rapid pace, and we’re running out of room to display them on our shelf. I needed to fix this problem immediately!

HOLIDAY CARD HOLDER7

I had some unused garden stakes and some leftover chicken wire from the garden and I knew I could make something with these materials.

I cut two pieces of a garden stake to approximately 35″, and then two more to approximately¬†22″.

I laid out the wood to form the frame and ensure that the chicken wire piece was wide enough for the wood.

I had a pack of four metal mending plates with screws and attached them to each corner after I put the frame together.

Next, I rolled out a piece of chicken wire and cut it to fit the frame, then used a staple gun to attach it to the frame.

Under twenty minutes, I had a nice Holiday Card Display that I hung on our wall in the kitchen. I did not have any of those cute small craft clothes pins, so I used small binder clips to attach our Christmas cards to the chicken wire.

Now the cool part is, that when the holidays are over I can use this frame with chicken wire as a memo holder in the office or kitchen! A great multi-use craft idea!
