How to Make a Christmas Card Display

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.

– Staple gun – Cabinet front – String – Outdoor Vinyl – Cricut Air 2 – Transfer paper – Little Christmas clips – Glue – Rustoleum 2x Painter’s Touch:  Satin


I took off all of the clips. I used a flat head screwdriver to pry them all off.

Step 1

Step 2

I sanded off the front of the display

Once I dusted off the dust, I spray painted the front with a matte red.

Step 4

Finally I used my staple gun to put on the string.

All hung up by our Christmas village and tree.
