Twigs, Wood, Paper

... with a smear of Mod Podge and a dusting of glitter:

Last night I decided to add some sparkle to wooden clothespins to be used on some twiggy branches from my father in law's farm.  Working by twinkle lights, it was a simple project with results that are likely to go unnoticed by my family.

But *~I~* know the sparkle is there!

Where did I use the clips?

Halfway down our stairs there is a landing, just wide enough for a small display table and some silk flowers.  I added the bare branches, which ended up looking like the perfect place for this year's Christmas cards:

With today's sunshine, it's difficult to see the glitter.  This evening by candlelight though, our cards will have a bit of bling to them.

How do you display your holiday cards?
