DIY Christmas Card Holder

So I was PINspired again! After seeing and pinning THIS I finally made one of my own!
I started with a premade metal sign from Hobby Lobby (75% off since I wanted so long ;-), some scrapbook letter stickers, a few different sizes/colors of ribbon, and some clothes pins that I fancied up :)
To fancy up the clothes pins I painted them with gold glitter glue and then sprinkled with red and gold glitter!
I stuck the scrapbook letters on the metal sign to spell out "Merry Christmas Mail" :)
Then I hung up the sign to measure how long I wanted the ribbons to hang
I cut the ribbon and hot glued them in place
After it was dry, I hung it up and tried it out
I made a pretty little spot for it to wait for the pretty cards to arrive!
And had the pretty clothes pins waiting in a little spot below
I got a few more cards than I was expecting and my card holder FILLED UP FAST!! I LOVE how it came out :)

I pinned the same one last year and made something very similar and love it. Great job! :)

I really like this. It is amazing how different it looks with cards on it. I'd like to make one to hang over my mail basket. Thanks for sharing! Roxana
