Do you love getting holiday cards in the mail? I know I do! Because I always get so many cards each year, I ‘m always thinking of new ways to hang Christmas cards. That’s why I made this Merry Mail Christmas card holder! It’s super easy to make and looks great when all the festive holiday cards are pinned in place. Perfect to make for yourself or as a Christmas gift for a friend!
Ways to hang Christmas cards project supplies:
- Unfinished Pallet Wood Sign
- Cricut™ Explore Air 2 Machine
- Red & Black Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Everlasting White Chalk Paint
- Red & White Baker’s Twine
- Mini Clothespins
- “Merry Mail” Free SVG File
Apply a few solid coats of white chalk paint to the front and edges of wood pallet sign. I like using chalk paint on wood when applying heat transfer vinyl. The texture works well with the vinyl adhesive. Allow paint to dry completely before applying vinyl.
Use a cutting machine to cut the free “Merry Mail” SVG file. Once cut, place vinyl design centered at the top of the painted sign and iron in place.
Wrap baker’s twine around the front of the sign and use hot glue to affix in place on the back. No need to wrap completely around the back. Just wait until the hot glue is completely dry and then return the string back in the direction you came from.
Now that all of the strings are in place, all you have to do is attach a few small paperclips. Your Merry Mail Christmas card holder is ready to display all the festive holiday cards you get in the mail this year!
Hope you enjoyed our easy ways to hang Christmas cards! It’s going to look so great with all your other holiday decor. Don’t be surprised if you have friends and family members asking you to make one for them too!
