Christmas Wreath Card Holder Tutorial

As I'm sure many of you around this time of year, the lovely Christmas cards from my friends and family were starting to pile up. I normally just put them up on the refrigerator, but this year I decided I wanted to do something a bit more special! If you're looking for a good place to display yours and have an extra wreath laying around, this is the project for you. 

I started out by gathering some supplies: a few clothes pins and some metallic markers. The metallic permanent marker actually seemed to work better than the paint marker in this case.

I then simply drew some simple stripes and polka dots on one side of the pin. I am no artist by any means, but this couldn't have been more simple. When I was finished, they looked like this:

I then simply clipped onto a card and then onto my wreath. I made a quick floral bow out of wire ribbon and called it done! 

This project took me less than 10 minutes and gives me a smile every time I walk by it. Have you done any quick Christmas projects just in time for the holiday?
