12 Days of Christmas Ideas--Day 11

On the eleventh day of Christmas Beyond The Picket Fence showed me... a Christmas card holder that is nifty!  Are you as ready as I am for the poor rhymes to be over?

For this quick project I used a coffee sack.  I chose one with a little green and red on it, but you also could use fabric, an old tablecloth, burlap you have stenciled.  I staple gunned it to the wood frame of a garage sale bulletin board (never pass on bulletin boards).  I then added some garden fencing to the front, bending it around the edges to secure it.

I curled up every other wire on the bottom for a hook (and yes, this too could hold stocking).

 And voila--Christmas card holder that can be used long after Christmas is over as a message center.
