DIY Christmas Tree Card Holder & Ornament Pushpins
December 8, 2014
Wow that is a long title, but I am doing two DIYs in one here! Both super easy because that is how I roll.
This entire project was inspired by the adorable disco ball ornaments I found in Target’s $1 spot (a favorite perusal of mine…) I did not really want to use them on my tree or as a garland. They are cute, but so mini, and I thought pushpins would be a great use. Then thought, hmm what would i use the pushpins for…
A Christmas Card holder it was!
How to Make A Cork Board Christmas Card Holder with Disco Ball Pushpins:
Mini Ornaments or Mini Disco Ball Ornaments (my sister is in the UK and had the EXACT same disco ball ornaments- haha, the apple does not fall from our family tree 😉 so, it sounds like you can find them anywhere!)
* I used the thin cork board roll available at any office supply store or craft store. A word of caution- it is VERY thin. My plan is to roll it up and reuse it every year, however, if you want something more sturdy, purchase a hard cork board option or attach poster board to the back of the thin cork board.
Sketch out your tree. Pencil does not work well on the cork board, so I suggest a marker. Also I did use a straight edge and my tree still came out crooked. But, I totally rocked it anyway.
Easiest instructions ever for disco ball pushpins that make any crooked tree look better:
Glue a thumbtack to them. Done! (use super glue, you need instant fastening)
