I have this huge wall in my dining room and I needed a good way to fill it up.

I also needed a fun way to display all our Christmas cards.

I found this fun idea using ribbon and clothespins and loved it!

It’s a fun easy way to display all those fun cards and bring some decoration to your home.

- Supplies –

1 1/2″ Christmas Ribbon
Extra ribbon for bows (optional)
Buttons
Clothespins
Push Pins
Paint (optional)
Hot Glue/Glue Gun

The first thing that I did was paint my clothespins.
You can find small clothespins at your local craft store.
I used spraypaint from Walmart. A better alternative may be using paint and a paintbrush. :)

They would be cute having nothing done to them, but you could line them with ribbon like Cherie did in her Christmas Card Wreath, or mod podge fabric or paper along the tops.

Then I added my buttons to the end of the clothespin.
Attach it to the end that you would squeeze.

To make my buttons a little more decorative, I added rhinestones and smaller buttons to the centers.

I attached them to my clothespin using hot glue.

You can do as many or as little as you want.

Now you can be ready to put your holder together,
but I decided to make some cute Christmas bows for mine.

I did a Triple Stack Bow using three types of Christmas Ribbons.

I made all my Simple Bows and then stacked them together according to the tutorial.

I used a White Double Ruffle Ribbon for my knotted center.

Then to add more color, I added some small red buttons to the center of my bows.

These bows are to put on the ends of my ribbon.
I especially love them because they cover the push pins. :)

Cut your 1 1/2″ Christmas Ribbon to the size you’d like.
Mine is about five feet long. Make sure to heat seal your ends.

I put my ribbon up using push pins.

Then I hot glued my bows on the ends of the ribbon, covering up my push pins.

Now your holder is ready for some cards!
This is the best part! :)

    I LOVE THIS!
    Its so simple, but really creative. Not to mention easy. I also think that its a great way to warm up your home during the Holidays and keep family and friends close even if their miles away.
