Christmas Card Clothespin Holder!

Good Tidings to you all, -WELCOME-

Today I created a Christmas card holder. I didn’t want to tape my cards to my laundry room door again this year. Lucky for me I found a board in my closet that has a saying on the other side, but I had never hung or used it. So I flipped it over and got to work.

 I started with some left over clothespins I had in my laundry room.

 I distressed the clothespins with distress ink COLOR- Frayed Burlap- gotta love that!

 Then I cut out the vinyl from my Cricut using the Platinum School Book Cartridge for the letters and the Bulbs from Home Decor Cartridge. I transferred them on.

Next I hot glued down 14 clothespins.
 then for more festive holiday pi-zaz I hot glued down two candy canes, they fit inside perfectly! 

 I added Silver Glitter Glue to the insides of the vinyl bulbs.

 and added more glitter to the clothespins.

 HERE IS THE FINISHED PRODUCT. I HEART IT SO MUCH!

I hung it up on my laundry room door facing the entry way and front door. I used a strong velcro on the back side top corners and then pushed firmly several times on the board against the laundry room door.

I am entering in the Creative Christmas Party at Creative Crate HERE, Whatever Goes Wednesday at Someday Crafts HERE, My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday HERE, Fingerprints on the Fridge for Feature yourself Friday HERE Weekend Wrap Up Party at Tatertots and Jello HERE and Sew Chatty HERE. As well as entering in the Iron Crafter Contest Secret Ingredient- Clothespins.
