Glittery Christmas Card Display

The holidays are upon us, people!! With Thanksgiving just 3 days away there is absolutely no denying it. And, of course, with the holidays comes holiday cards from all our loved ones. I used to stick our cards to the fridge but quickly realized that that was not a good idea. Our fridge is too small! No space! And with the arrival of our first holday card this past week, I whipped up a Glittery Christmas Card Display! I figured I better get on top of it now before my stack of cards grows and I get too overwhelmed!

Now when I say “Glittery Christmas Card Display” I basically mean that I took some plain old clothespins and made them sparkly! And I plan on using them to hang my Christmas cards!

This project was incredibly simple. Probably only took me 20 minutes. All you need is:

  • Glitter
  • Clothes pins
  • Mod Podge OR Double Sided Tape {I tried 2 different methods and both worked}
  • A disposable bowl
  • Some ribbon or twine

Method 1: using a brush, paint a little bit of Mod Podge on one side of your clothes pin.

Sprinkle glitter onto Mod Podge to cover clothespin. Tap clothes pin on bottom of the bowl to remove any excess glitter. Repeat with other side of clothespin.

Method 2: Take a piece of double sided tape and place it on clothes pin. If it is too wide {like mine was. You can kinda see the tape hanging off the right edge} trim the tape down with scissors. Sprinkle with glitter like you saw above.

Let them dry for about 10 minutes. If you find that you still have a lot of glitter falling off, using a dry paint brush, brush off the loose glitter.

See!? I told you it was easy! That is all I did to make my glittery clothes pins! I love them! Seriously. They are so sparkly and pretty!

Then all I did was hang a bit of ribbon from one of my walls and clipped some pictures and cards from it using my glamorized clothes pins.

{BTW, this is a picture of my beautiful sister, brother-in-law and 3 of my adorable nieces! This picture was from last Christmas that I had kept hanging on my fridge. Sometimes I wave to them and pretend to pinch my nieces cheeks when I’m getting Egg Nog out of my fridge. ;)}

I put the extra clothespins in a mason jar on my reclaimed window frame right next to the display. This way I have extras waiting for more cards!!

I seriously love this! It turned out so good for such a simple project! And now I have a place to display all of the cards we get! And while I’m trying {SOOO HARD} at holding off until Thanksgiving to go¬†full out Christmas {and failing miserably – Christmas music has been playing around here since October. Don’t judge me. ;)} I thought this little touch was not done too early!

Plus, who doesn’t love a little extra glitter in their life?? What do you do with your Christmas cards??
