A couple of years ago, I made this great card display from an upcycled cabinet front. It was a remnant from our DIY arcade machine project. I liked how it turned out, but I decided to redo it this year. I wasn’t a huge fan of the interior ‘windows’ of it being empty. So I got to work…

How to Make a Christmas Card Display
This is the before picture of the display… it’s pretty. I like it. But I really wanted a new look.
First I took off all of the clips… I used a flat head screwdriver to pry them all off.
I sanded off the front of the display…
Once I dusted off the dust, I spray painted the front with a matte red.
Finally I used my staple gun to put on the string. The staples didn’t really hold the string well by itself so I tied it onto the staples.
All hung up by our Christmas village and tree. Love it!
Now if only I could get our own Christmas cards… made… sent… photos taken. Any of those. LOL!
