For this Works for Me Wednesday, I just have a quick idea:
I saw this idea in a Martha Stewart Christmas magazine lots of years ago, so it’s not really my idea…but I thought it worth sharing, because it’s SO easy and cheap! I used ribbon that I bought in the dollar bin at Michael’s. I folded the ends in half and cut it at an angle, so the end of it looks nice. I also used a bit of clear fingernail polish on the ends to keep them from fraying. To hang the ribbons, I simply hammered two flat-headed push pins into the top of the door. We hang our ribbons on our coat closet, so we see them often.
I just happened to find some round paperclips that I use to hang the cards, but you could use regular paperclips or the cute little rectangular-shaped ones.
At the beginning of the season, when we have just a few cards, I spread them all out. By the end of the season, when there are sometimes 75 cards hanging on the ribbons, I can smash them together a bit more to get them all on!
