How to make a Christmas Garland and Card Display

Christmas Garland and Card Display by #EclecticHandmadeCreations

Last week was all about Christmas Cards. They are a great way of creating something unique and special for someone that you care about. They don’t take much time, they aren’t expensive to make, and they can look so amazing. I love that Christmas time is an excuse to go old school and post letters and cards. It is so exciting to receive cards in the mail, or really anything other than bills! But what do you do with all those amazing cards, how do you showcase the works of art that your family and friends have made or picked out especially for you? They create such a Christmasy feel and provide beautiful decoration. However, they can be quite difficult to display; the slightest of breezes blows them over, they may not even like to stand on their own, hanging them over the traditional piece of string only helps protect them from a slight breeze, anything stronger and the whole lot come floating down. Today I am going to show you a beautiful way of displaying all your Christmas cards; A Christmas Garland and Card Display. It displays all your Christmas cards and it even looks great without cards so it doesn’t matter if you don’t receive any physical cards, perhaps your family and friends have so completely embraced the digital age and don’t get excited about mail as I do :-).

2014 Craft and Quilting Fair

There is nothing quite like walking into a massive hall, filled to the brim with supplies, tools and experts in the field of your favourite pass time. As I entered the Sydney Exhibition Centre, surrounded by other excited attendees all there to learn, share and shop I couldn’t help but smile with glee like an over excited little girl. And then again 2 months later when I entered the Exhibition Park in Canberra I wasn’t any less excited. This year I was lucky enough to not only experience my first visit to a craft fair but to experience my second too.
