Christmas Card Display

I'll admit it. I'm not so good at this blogging thing. I have ideas all the time but I don't do a very good job of sitting down and writing them. Occasionally though I do get around to it and this is one of those moments. Of course having my husband pick up a movie on the way home for him and the kids to watch certainly helps.

Did you see my post for displaying children's artwork? Even nearly two years later it still gets used daily and worked so well that I decided to do the same thing for hanging our Christmas cards. All you need are simple cafe rods, command strips and curtain rings. I did spray paint my cafe rods black first (go ahead use your shocked face) and used the command strips instead of the hanging hardware so they weren't permanent and didn't leave any marks on the walls. After that it's as simple as sticking the command strips up, putting the rings on the rods and hanging them. Once your cards start rolling in you just clip them on the hooks. It really is that easy. 

By the way, if you're looking at the cards in the picture and you happen to be my number one follower and notice your card from a few years ago just know that we keep all of our cards from years passed with our decorations and this is the stack that I pulled out to use for demonstration. It did bring quite the smile to my face to see how young the boys looked just a few years ago.
