DIY Christmas Card Holder

Hello Lovelies!
  Welcome to the 12 Days Of Merry ( a day late, my apologies )! Up until Christmas, I will be sharing 12 different Christmas crafts, fashion projects, and recipes. The idea came to me one afternoon when I was trying to think of a clever title for a Christmas blog post ( I like to plan way in advance ). Christmas Days popped into my head, then I thought of the song, 12 Days of Christmas, then 12 Days of Merry came to mind and with it a whole bunch of thoughts about what I could share over the holidays.
  So, after all that, here is post #1. Now, those of you who follow me for fashion, have no fear. I will be posting fashion posts in between the Merry posts.
  Onto the holder!
  For this you will need only two things – 
  1. A strand of Christmas lights ( any color )
  2. Clothespins
  This tutorial is very simple. Place your strand of lights over a door frame, securing with nails or tacks, and clothespin your cards to the light strand. This way, you have a place for all those lovely cards you are receiving, or going to receive, and it looks really pretty at the same time.
  If you want to get really fancy ( and I wish I had photographed this ) you can add a garland to the light strand and clip the cards into it.
  Super simple and festive. Go ahead and try it out!
