-clothes pins (I found mine at Target - had to ask around before we could locate them, as I don't think that many people hang their clothes out to dry these days...they had some mini ones at JoAnns which I am saving for another project, so these are the normal size.)
-Mod Podge (for gluing and finishing)
-pencil (for tracing)
-Paint brush (for gluing and finishing)
-scissors or xacto knife (for cutting)
-paper of choice (I chose a couple of scrapbooking papers. but you could use anything)
-twine or ribbon
Step 1: Trace a clothes pin on the wrong side of the paper. trace liberally, as you'll want to cover the front of the clothes pin. I used my ruler and then made a whole row after I traced the initial clothes pin.
Step 2: Cut the strips of paper.
Step 3: Paint mod podge onto the clothes pin.
Step 4: Place the paper cut-out on the clothes pin. Set aside to dry. Repeat process for as many clothes pins as you'd like to do - we did 30. If you're very popular and have lots and lots of friends who send you Holiday cards, you might want to do 50 or more ;)
Step 5: The mod podge dries pretty quickly. Once it is mostly dry, go ahead and paint a top coat of mod podge onto the top of the paper. I have the mod podge with the glossy finish (you can get it in matte, as well). It may look white-ish for a moment, but once it dries it will be clear and give a nice, somewhat protective finish to your paper.
Step 6: Find a location around your home where you'd like to make the display. At first, I did our stairwell but then realized we needed more room and the angle wasn't quite what I wanted. So I took twine and tied it on the sides of our blinds, and there began hanging up our cards as we've received them. Last year, I hung a pretty ribbon from the wall vertically and pinned them down that way. Either way, it is a simple way to display the lovely faces and well-wishes of family and friends during the season.
