I love receiving Christmas cards from all of our friends and family. I made this DIY Christmas card display as a way to hang all of our holiday cards so that we can enjoy them through the season. It also makes a great photo display as well. Scroll down to see how to make this DIY Christmas card or photo display.
DIY Christmas card or photo display
This is super easy and neutral so you can leave up all year long! We don’t have many photos displayed throughout our home so I think I’m going to print some and leave it up in our living room. I also think this would be beautiful in a nursery.
To make this DIY Christmas card or photo display
You will need:
1.) Start by cutting two pieces of twine, making them the same length.
2.) Tie each piece of twine one to each end of the branch. Bring up each piece so that you make a triangle and tie at the top. This will be how you hang the branch.
3.) Next you will assemble your greenery. If using a garland, cut into 3 separate pieces. If using faux eucalyptus stems, tie a few stems together to make a longer strand of eucalyptus. You will need 3.
4.) Take a piece of twine and tie to the end of the eucalyptus strand. Tie the other end of the twine to the branch so that it dangles down. Do this with the other two stands.
5.) Use clothespins to hang your cards or photos.
That’s it! Now you can enjoy looking at all of your holiday cards all season. And when the holidays are over, use to hang some photos throughout your home!

Dried orange slices make such pretty holiday decor for garlands and ornaments. Not only is it very simplistic, but you can use to decorate past the holidays through the winter months. Scroll down to learn how to dry orange slices and make these dried orange slice ornaments.
How to dry orange slices
It’s super easy to dry orange slices. I also do grapefruits too because I just love the color!
- Start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees F.
- Slice your oranges and grapefruits about 1/4 inch thick.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the citruses on the parchment paper.
- Bake in the oven for about 5-6 hours, flipping regularly so that each side is dried evenly.
- Let cool
How to make dried orange slice ornaments
You will need:
- a needle with a large eye
- orange slices
- Start by threading some or the twine through the eye of the needle.
- With the point end of your needle, pierce the cranberry and pull it through so that it is on the twine.
- Repeat with the orange slices and cranberries in whatever pattern you choose.
- Cut the twine and tie the ends together.
Use to decorate your tree.
In the past, I’ve also done dried orange slice garlands. Click here to see how.

We’re having a little birthday party for Dude Man this weekend so we’ve been working out in the yard and garden beds to spruce things up. Now is the perfect time to dry your hydrangeas if you haven’t already! It’s super easy to do and gives you beautiful free decor! I’m sharing my tips on how to dry your hydrangeas below!
Our hydrangeas exploded this year! I have strawberry vanilla hydrangeas and limelight and the colors were just gorgeous!
Late August-October is the perfect time to harvest them to dry out so you can enjoy them all year long. You’ll notice that the hydrangeas start to dry out a little on their own and become almost papery and a little crunchy in texture. You’ll also notice the color beginning to deepen and they start to look a little vintage. This is the best time to cut them.
Now you absolutely can just cut them and bring them in and allow to dry on their own or hand them upside down. But this is my favorite method below. I find that it yields a nicer color.
How to dry your hydrangreas
1.) Cut your stems so they are about 12 inches long.
2.) Remove all of the leaves from the stems.
3.) Place them in a vase of about 1-2 inches of water.
4.) Place the vase out of direct sunlight and allow the water to evaporate (about 1-2 weeks). This will naturally dry out your hydrangeas.
You can arrange your dried hydrangeas in vases, baskets or even make a dried hydrangea wreath. The muted tones are beautiful all year long!
