I partnered with Staples Canada who sponsored this fun DIY post. The creative content and opinions are my own.
If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to make your holiday cards part of your decor, have I got a plum pudding of an idea for you! DIY — and by that I mean Display Individual Yuletides — with this festive and evergreen display yule want to use all year round.
Step 1: Spray paint the gridwall (outside or in a well-ventilated area) and leave to dry.
Step 2: Gather your cards, binder clips and any other decorative elements that jingle your bells. I jazzed up a couple of the black binder clips with washi tape, but you could also paint them or leave them as is.
Step 3: Hang the gridwall with a couple of nails (it’s heavy, so you might prefer to use screws and wall plugs but ours is holding up just fine without them).
Step 4: Attach your cards with binder clips and decorate with ribbons, ornaments, lights and whatever else you fancy.
Before I put anything on it the gridwall seemed rather large, but with the 20 or so Christmas cards we get over year I know it’ll fill up fast.
And when the holiday season’s over stow the cards out of sight, and for new year’s calendars and notices, this display is just right.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have cards to finish tonight. Happy Holidays to all. I hope your new year is bright!
