Holiday Card Display

November 26, 2012

I don’t send out holiday cards.  I just have never had enough cash laying around to spend it on something that people are going to (most likely) throw out.  However, I do love holiday cards and so I pick out my own and every year I hang them up.  A few of them are cards I have received, but 90% are ones I have purchased for myself.  I think this is a much better way to do it, less waste and more happiness.

So this year, I had the perfect place to hang them up, but I wanted them to look more official.  I thought about framing each one with some decorative ribbon or something.  That sounded hard and it meant a trip to the store, so instead, I framed the area I wanted to put them in with some mini tinsel.  I then planned out how I was going to hang them by laying them out on the dining room table.

When I got them all arranged to my satisfaction I began hanging them on the wall.  I started with the corners and then the sides, working my way to the middle.  I am very happy with the way it turned out.  I might add some lights later, for a little sparkle.

      All it is missing is a pine scented sachet – Just Kidding! Alas, I have no shoe drawer for my sachet…
