Simple Home Decor




Here is a really simple idea for your home! I made this card holder by crocheting paper yarn with a big crochet hook. I made about 1 meter long string with the most simple loops. It took about 10-15 minutes from start to finish. I had these vintage clips we use to hang curtains, they have a little hook on the top which I can hang on the crocheted loops. Even without the hooks the clips would work just fine. You can make the length as you wish, my holder looks nice with six Christmas cards on it. I tied the other end of the string on a curtain holder stick (or whatever the name is, I don't know exactly!). You could also hang it on the wall, by the door way or maybe you can find another suitable place at your home.

When the holidays are over, you can still use it all year around. Switch the cards or use the clips to hold little memo notes, for example. Happy crafting!
