One of my favorite traditions during the holiday season collecting Christmas cards from my family and friends. But usually they just end up haphazardly stuck to the fridge. This year will be different because I created the cutest color blocked wood DIY Christmas card holders to display all my cards as they come in.
- Wood Craft Blocks
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Painter’s Tape
- Paint Brush
- Gold Sticker Letters
- Brass Jewelry Wire
- Thumb Tack
Now use your letter stickers to spell out any words you want on your blocks. I went with MERRY for mine, but I think I may order a few more blocks so I can add AND BRIGHT too. The length of your word will depend on how many holiday cards you need to display.
Next you will take the brass jewelry wire and pliers and create the photo holders by bending the wire into a paper clip shape with a long tail.
Finally, use a thumb tack to punch a little hole in the wood blocks and then insert your brass paper clip into the hole. Repeat with all your blocks and then you are ready for those holiday cards to start rolling in.
I love that these color blocked wood DIY Christmas card holders can be easily customized in your favorite holiday colors and sayings. How about shades of red and green that spell out Happy Holidays. Whatever you choose, your holiday cards will no longer be relegated to a pile on the counter, you will now have a colorful and unique way to display them all season long.
