$1 Christmas Card holder

This is very easy.  Very cheap.  And pretty quick.

You need:
felt in assorted colors
clothes pins
string/ribbon/rope
hot glue/glue gun

First either draw or google an image of a Christmas tree light.  Then trace it onto grey felt.

Cut out.

Then trace the 'bulb' onto the colored felt.  Cut.

Either glue or sew the colored bulb onto the grey light shape.  I sewed mine but glue would work too.

Cut thin grey lines.  Glue/sew onto the bulb.

Hot glue a clothes pin on the back. 
Glue the ribbon/rope/string to the clothes pins.

That's it.



Hang your cards.  The lights are hung.  The cards are here.  Time to spread Christmas cheer.

HAHAHAHA I just made that up. :)
