What to do with all those Christmas cards you want do display….I’ve got an idea that I’m IN LOVE with!!
And I’ve been using it year after year – because it’s so simple, but cute and perfect for a card display!
A friend knew that I’d put this old crib bedspring to good use – – immediately I thought it would be a perfect way to display Christmas Cards! This spot is right in my entryway (the dresser post is HERE and you can see the location in the Frame Wall Post). So here’s a before – – I never really loved the mirror (see it over the dresser, in the side of the frame wall picture??)- – Trevor just hung the bedspring right up on the same hooks the mirror was using – easy peasy.
The only problem was I wanted to show this to you in case you want to do the same thing – but I don’t have many Christmas Cards to display yet. I borrowed some decorative ones from Ashley, then I added the pennant banner (like this tutorial, only a mini version) and this cute “Tis the Season Banner”
For clips I’m just using clothespins – mini and regular size. I think it would be easiest to spraypaint them, but I didn’t happen to have any red spray paint on hand. But I did have red craft paint and an eager 7 year old – perfect:
The way the frame of the springs sits, it touches the wall while the springs part is away from the wall about half an inch – so there’s space to use clips, etc.
I am so IN LOVE with this – – it’s a big space so it needed something big like this. I think I’m going to leave the crib bedspring up year-round and just change the decor on it as the season changes….I’m so excited about it!!!
