child making Christmas cardsClothespin Christmas Card Holder

A great Christmas craft that is practical as well as fun. You won't need to worry about where to put your Christmas cards this year.


  • Acrylic craft paint - 1 primary green -1 evergreen
  • Clothes pins (The spring kind)
  • Wooden beads - Red & Green
  • craft wire
  • Christmas Ribbon (wired Ribbon works best)


1. Paint half of your clothes pins evergreen and half of them primary green. (The number of clothes pins depends on the size of your wreath.)

2. Allow the paint to dry. When these are dry, string a clothes pin onto the wire through the spring in the center of the clothespin. The clamping part of the clothes pin should be toward the outside. Then put on a red or green bead. Continue stringing clothes pins and beads, alternating colors. You'll want to create the pattern like so:

Evergreen clothespin, red bead, primary green clothespin, green bead, etc.. There will be a bead between each clothespin. When you end up with the size you want, bend the wire into a circle and twist at the top.

Attach your Christmas bow at the top and it's finished! Now you can clip the greeting cards on each of the clothespins! It's really adorable
