Back to my blog. Last year, I wanted to find a creative way to hang my Christmas cards that wasn't just taping them to a wall. Because, let's face it, that's really not creative at all. So, I went to Pinterest, as always. I couldn't find the exact pin that I took the idea from, but I found a similar idea today so you can check it out. To check out the blog, click here.

After all was dry, I used a glue gun and added ribbon to attach the Christmas cards and a skinny ribbon to hang the sign. As it says in threepartsblessed's blog, a "Command" hook is an awesome invention and should be used for hanging your sign. It comes off clean from your walls at the end of the holiday season. I love them.
And there you have it. This picture was obviously taken at the start of the season. I wanted to allow for ample time to add Christmas cards. This was a great addition to my holiday decor and it was very useful. I think I will decorate the clothespins next, but I haven't taken the time to do that yet.
Anyway, I'd recommend making something like this. It doesn't take too much work and it is oh-so handy if you don't have a way to hang up your cards already.
I'll be posting more before Christmas, but in the meantime, here is a picture of the cuteness that is just a little over a month old that has entered our lives.
