12 Days of Christmas--Day 3

On the third day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, a place for my Christmas cards to hangy.  I started with a great window, well really an old screen/storm door insert.

I then added an easy garland I made by cutting circles out of book pages and old sheet music.

I sewed these onto a piece of twine (I always call this jute, but I did have someone ask me what jute was) using a zig-zag stitch.  This is quick and give the garland nice "body" or rigidity.  This garland would be great on a tree, across the mantle, draped around chandeliers.

I used staples to attach the garland to the back of the window frame, and some clothespins I painted and roughed up with some salt to hang your cards and photos.

This would be good after Christmas as well for notes, photos, etc.
