Corkboard turned Card Holder

Monday, December 6th, 2010

I’m always looking for easy creative ways to display the Christmas cards that come to our home every season.  Last year, I used a white chain + jingle bells.   

This year, I decided to repurpose an ordinary corkboard I had sitting in the back of the closet.  It was the perfect size for hanging in the foyer, so I made a simple tree with ribbon, fabric, and nailhead trim.  It sits in the perfect spot in the entry where we can enjoy our cards all season long!

If you’d like to turn your corkboard into a similar card display, here’s what you’ll need:

Scrap of fabric to form base

Decorative ribbon for both tree and trim

1 package of 20 nailheads (two more packages if you want to create the trim around the base)

Staple gun

Fabric glue

Mallet (or strong thumbs!)
