Each year I try to come up with a new DIY Christmas Card Display. This year I wanted to make something that could be used for other occasions. I also made it so I could use it for food photography. I took a few different tutorials I found online and combined them to make this.
DIY Christmas Card Display
- Wood Glue
- Unfinished Wood Wall Panel
- Sample Paint -Brown & Another Color
- Hot Glue
- First get your 8 ft long boards cut at Lowes. They will do it right there at the store for you in the package. I did 2.5 feet, 2.5 feet, and 3 feet. I used the 3 foot one for my Card Display.
- These board have grooves. Put a little wood glue in the grooves and press together.
- Let this dry overnight.
- Take half of your brown paint and mix with water. You will want about a 50/50 ratio.
- Brush on this brown paint mixture all over your board. Then wipe down with a cloth.
- Let that dry for 10-15 minutes. I left one of my boards this way. I plan to paint the other with a very light coat of white paint.
- For my Card Display I used a green and brushed it all over the brown. Then I took another cloth and wiped it down.
- Let this dry over night.
- Wrap around the twine and hot glue to the back to hold in place. I used little mini clothespins.
- I took another piece of twine and attached to the top with a lot of hot glue to hang it on my wall.
Here is our card that I ordered from Pear Tree Greetings. It is actually a magnet. I love how it turned out.
