Do you have a designated spot to put all of your Christmas cards when they arrive in the mail? I've seen a couple variations of this Christmas card holder wreath floating around the interwebs.
Most Christmas card holder wreath tutorials I've seen involve some sort of glue or beads or wire tying. I wanted a simple version that I could have hung up in minutes.
Christmas Card Holder Wreath Supplies
This Christmas card holder wreath requires nothing other than a wreath form, about 100 large clothespins, 150 small colored clothespins and a ribbon for hanging.
We're working with CVS, and we used their awesome same-day service to print out our business Christmas cards this year! Every year, I send out holiday cards to some of our favorite clients. It's a nice little way to show our appreciation for their work with us, and I've found that it keeps us top-of-mind when they're planning partnerships for next season. The cards representing our business need to be high-quality but relatively inexpensive and EASY, because Lord knows I have enough stuff to get on top of in December!
I went to www.cvs.com/photo (they also have an app for all you on-the-go people) and pulled my favorite pic in from Facebook. As you can see, it doesn't necessarily drop everything perfectly into place, but it's super-easy to personalize. I made a couple quick photo edits and customized the font and color so it matched our site's branding, and we were ready to pick up our cards in an hour! They have beautiful templates in 4×6, 5×7 and 8×10 sizes.
Christmas Card Holder Wreath How-To
As for the Christmas card holder wreath, I simply clipped the large clothespins onto the center rungs. The spacing between the two wires in the middle is perfect for the two grooves in the clothespins. Then the smaller, decorative clothespins get placed on the rungs in between. It's really a very simple process that comes together quite quickly. Better yet, it is very durable and stores easily in our Christmas storage solutions for next season.
Add some ribbon and hang your Christmas card holder wreath for all to see. We have an inset porch and don't get much rain here in San Diego, so we put ours on the front door. Those of you with less-cooperative weather may want to opt for an indoor pantry door or office.
