Christmas Card Frame

If you're like me, you've already started receiving those wonderful Christmas cards from friends and family. Well this year since I did some re-decorating with my living room furniture and I'm minus a sofa table, I didn't have a place to display my holidays I decided to make a card frame. Here's how I did it:

Step 1 - I painted an unfinished wood frame from Hobby Lobby with white acrylic paint.

Step 1a - After the white paint was dry, I added some metallic gold paint over it.

Step 2 - Then I added some small cup hooks to the inside left and right of the frame.

Step 3 - After the cup hooks were added, I strung some gold cord by alternating to each side of the frame until all the hooks were filled. To make sure the cord stays tight, I used a staple gun to attach the ends of the cord to the back of the frame.

Here's how the finished frame looks without cards:

And here's the finished frame with a few cards added:
To attach the cards I used some clothes pins that I also painted with white and metallic gold paints. This was an easy project, I'm happy with how it tuned out and love that it can be used over and over for seasons to come.

I've really enjoyed sharing my creative projects and pages with everyone this year. Thanks so much to Tiare and all the wonderful, talented designers here at Scraps of Color Espire...Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and A Blessed New Year!
