It seems that each year, the influx of holiday cards seems to double in size. And while the holiday season wouldn’t be the same without them, we’ve seriously been lacking in organization… to the point where they all get lazily propped up on a kitchen counter where we can’t even enjoy them. Of course, Martha had just the solution! This card wreath made of clothespins and an embroidery hoop has totally saved our sanity this year, while also making for quite the special decorative piece. And did I mention it took about five minutes to make? Follow the jump for the easy breezy instructions…
Clothespin Card Wreath
*from Martha Stewart
- embroidery hoop
- mini clothespins
- hot glue gun
- wide satin ribbon
- Use ruler and pencil to draw hash marks 2 inches apart alone one side of embroidery hoop. Leave a 6 inch space for ribbon.
- Place a dot of hot glue at each mark, and quickly press down a clothespin. You can face them all outward, or alternate directions so that cards can be clipped both inside and outside of the embroidery hoop.
- Loop ribbon around top of embroidery hook, tie at the top, and hang.
