Holiday Card Holder - DIY

My kids are getting lots of holiday cards from their friends. When they are not carrying it around I thought they could have their own holder to display.  Just for them, in a snowman shape.  Following are instructions on how to make it.

Items needed:
scrapbook paper
mod podge
embroidery rings - 2 different sizes
clothes pins


Trace your clothes pins on to the scrap book paper and cut out.


Put mod podge on the clothes pin, put paper piece on and let dry 2-5 mins, 
then add a coat of mod podge to the top to set the paper.


Paint your rings in what ever color you want, I choose red.

Glue pieces together and hang on wall - voila.  I originally thought these were going to be 2 ornaments but when my son saw them he said 'Mommy is this a snowman?'  'why yes yes it is!!'

  2. Too funny, I do the same thing but use a ribbon and hang it like a clothesline.
