I made this last week....
I used a cabinet door that I had sitting in the basement...
Then I primed it & painted it white!
Then I strung 3 pieces of red & white baker's twine around, then used little clothespins to hang up some Christmas cards!
I seriously love that I will be able to fill it up with cards & photos over the Christmas season!
I only used painter's tape to secure the baker's twine to the back of the board.
I was going to add screws in the back to tie the twine to, but I wanted to have the option of pulling it all off at the end of the season & re-using it in my craft space throughout the rest of the year!
I had my husband bring up boxes of Christmas decorations late last night. I set up all our decorations (except the tree) so that the kids would wake up to see the decorations out this morning.
I will put up my tree sometime this week. To be honest I am not looking forward to keeping my 19 month old from taking off ornaments. Maybe she'll do okay. I'll find out soon either way! :)
When do YOU put up your Christmas decorations??
