If you are looking for last minute holiday decoration ideas you can easily do at home, we have the perfect DIY Christmas card frame! This frame can be used to organize all your holiday cards and pictures, and can be displayed on your entry-way table or on top of the fireplace mantel.
We made a Christmas themed frame with gold spray paint and red yarn. If you prefer a more subtle color, we also made a mint frame that would look good throughout the new year, and can be used to organize pictures, invitations and reminder notes.
CHRISTMAS CARD FRAME:
1. Spray paint a hollow wooden frame with gold spray paint. If the frame had a different color previously painted, we recommend spraying one layer of white primer to make a neutral base for the gold. 2. Make sure the spray paint is completely dry. 3. From the back of the frame, attach thick red yarn across the frame in desired design. We used scotch tape to temporarily attach the yarn from one end to the other. This way we were able to rearrange the yarn until we achieved the right design. 4. Once you have the yarn arranged, staple the yarn onto the wooden frame using a staple gun. 5. Check the front to see if you like how it looks. 6. You can also design the corners by wrapping yarn. Finally, attach Christmas cards and pictures with wood clothespins!
We displayed the gold frame on our entry-way table!
NEW YEARS MINT FRAME:
1. Prepare a wooden hollow frame, spray paint, hammer, metal hooks and wire/yarn. 2. Spray paint the front and make sure to let it completely dry. 3. Arrange where you want to attach the metal hooks on the back of the frame. 4. Attach the hooks first by hand, and then softly hammer them down so that they are securely in the frame. 5. Tightly twist wire around the hooks. 6. Check the front to see how everything looks. 7. Attach notes and pictures on the wire with clothespins.
