I know, and have to admit, anyone can do this DIY greeting card display.
Actually, I'm not even sure this would fit in the category of a true DIY.
I mean this is something my six year old can do.
So easy, so simple, so perfect for me...
the "not-so-much do it yourself er",
who also happens to be on a pretty tight budget.
All it takes is a few thumbtacks, and a little bit of yarn,
or really any kind of ribbon would work just fine.
I've become a huge fan of the thumbtack.
They come a lot fancier than these ones. And some people even create their own.
Recently, I put up a cork board in my office/work space where I keep my daily calender,
and at least fourteen post-its with positive little messages and reminders.
How I ever lived without it, I am unsure.
This is simple stuff.
1. Place a pin in the wall at the place the display will begin.
2. The next step would be to cut the yarn/ribbon.
Size will depend upon the space used for the display.
I used 3 strings of yarn cut at about three feet in length
(the wall that was used for our display is really long).
3. Tie a knot on both ends leaving a small loop to hang from the pin.
Most of the cards could be draped over the line,
but the photo greeting cards I simply attached with a paperclip.
A smaller clothespin would be very cute as well.
This was the final result.
This long hallway, has had bare white walls since the day we moved in.
I have been wanting to fill that wall with photographs but,
well... I just keep finding other things to do with my time.
The cards will be left up for another week.
These days, I walk a little slower down that long hall,
and often stop to look at the photo cards.
When I do, I think of all my friends and family,
and how thankful I am to have them in my life.
I'm thinking, I may keep it up a bit longer and use it as an art display
for the kids colorful and beautiful masterpieces.
