Really excited to be doing a little blog swap with Summer from Sumo’s Sweet Stuff. Run on over and read my post how to prepare and plant forced bulbs for the holidays. In the meantime, check out the fun tutorial for a Christmas card holder she has provided!
Fun Christmas card display with Summer from Sumo’s Sweet Stuff
I’m so excited to be blog swapping over here today. I always love blog swapping because I get to ‘meet’ new people!
I’m Sumo, from Sumo’s Sweet Stuff!
My real name is Summer, but my husband nicknamed me Sumo when we were dating. (Should I be offended?) Now he’s got all of my family, as well as lots of our friends, calling me Sumo. I think Aunt Sumo sounds pretty great, don’t you? I live in Utah with my husband, and our two beautiful daughters – Remi & Reece!
I started Sumo’s Sweet Stuff as a place to keep some of my crafting projects so that my personal blog wasn’t overrun with them. Somehow, that developed into a place to host giveaways, share tutorials, share recipes, and feature fellow bloggers’ ideas and blogs! I also use my blog to promote my etsy shop, so if you’re ever in the market for some baby girl accessories, or even a little something for yourself, come on over! Every Monday is Market Yourself Monday, where you can link up your latest projects, and visit other blogs to get some inspiration!
I thought I’d share a quick Christmas tutorial with you all today.
I saw this idea in Martha Stewart’s magazine. Super easy, but I just love the end result! And also, cheap!
Here’s what you need:
- embroidery hoop
- spray paint
- hot glue/gun
Start off by spray painting your hoop and clothespins. (My clothespins were already painted and blinged out before I did this project!)
Once your hoop and clothespins are dry, lay out your clothespins where you want them to be glued down on the hoop. Account for where you will be tying your bow at the top (or bottom if you like!)
Hot glue the clothespins on.
Tie a nice bow on to the hoop. (Guess I did this after I put the tags on – oops!)
Clip in your Christmas cards (or Christmas tags, since I don’t have cards to display yet!)
and hang it up for all to admire!
See, easy right? It didn’t take long, but now I’ve got a fun, new decoration that is cute and functional! Perfect!
Thanks for having me over here today! I hope to see you over at Sumo’s Sweet Stuff soon!
