Do you struggle with finding a cute and creative way to display all those Christmas cards you receive? My fridge fills up fast and there are only so many open spots to put them! This year I made my own Christmas card holder, it was super easy and perfect for a basic crafter like me. Here is a quick and easy tutorial for a simple yet pretty Christmas card holder.
DIY Ribbon Christmas Tree Christmas Card Holder
What you will need:
- Ribbon that is wired on both edges the stiffer the better. I suggest a ribbon that is at least 2 inches wide. You will need 8 feet
- Ribbon that is wired on both edges that is slightly thinner than your first ribbon choice.
- miniature clothespins
- mini framed letters spelling NOEL
- Hot glue gun
Cut your thicker ribbon to 8 feet, fold in half and at the folded end make a knot leaving a small loop on top for hanging, this will serve as your trunk. Cut your thinner ribbon into 7 strips starting at 10 inches and slowly getting longer with each one, these will be your branches. The final ribbon should be no more than 2 feet wide. Cut one extra strip of the thinner ribbon about 6 inches to wrap at the bottom of the branches on the trunk of your tree. Lift the top layer of the thicker ribbon and lay out your ribbon strips in order to create the pine tree affect. Hot glue each ribbon one by one between the two layers on the trunk ribbon. Once all the ribbons are hot glued between the two trunk ribbons wrap the extra ribbon piece around the trunk ribbons to finish off the base. Hot glue your NOEL letters down the center of the tree near the top. Use the mini clothes pins to pin on your Christmas cards.
