Chicken Wire Card Holder - DIY - Craft
Waney Edge Card Holder - DIY - Craft
Christmas Tree Shelf - DIY Craft
Create an alternative way to display your Christmas cards - these ones are made using supplies you can find at B and Q
The top one uses chicken wire, the middle is using Waney edge wood - love the way the rope has been attached, and the bottom one has shelves arranged to form a Christmas tree shape.
