I think this is one of those projects that I liked better in theory than I am in practice.  It’s just not getting the wow factor I was looking for – I think it needs more dimension, or some jute or ribbon to give it more texture.  Anyways, here’s what I did:

I Mod Podge’d holiday scrapbook paper to a bunch of mini-clothespins, and lightly sanded the edges.  Then I strung up some 18-gauge wire to the garland hooks over our mantle.  Then I just attached the cards and announcements we’ve received so far this season (plus the Christmas cards I made with my Mom), using the embellished clothespins.  Instant card garland!

What do you think – needs something more?
