Holiday Cards

Each year we get a handful of holiday cards and each year I struggle trying to figure out where to put them. I mean, so much thought and money goes into them that they shouldn't just be tossed into the garbage. As each year passes I still manage to pile them up, rotate them on and off the refrigerator and inevitably they get thrown away at some point.

I decided to be "crafty" this year. I wanted to make something that could display the cards yet fit in with the holiday decor. So, London and I went SHOPPING. London actually spawned my entire idea by running down an aisle after her "cone" she said?!?! I didn't know what she saw but I followed her.

At that moment, I had an idea. What if I could make a christmas tree card holder or something of the like? Anyway, some spray paint and a few sprigs of colorful filler later we have a card tree and there is room for more....

(The cone spray painted metallic gold.)




Thanks to everyone who contributed to this years christmas card tree! Happy Holidays!!!
