I blogged once before about my love of blessing rings! I first learned about these from my friend, Katie, and since then, have made several of these for various occasions. I have rings for each of my children’s baby showers and birthdays. I also keep a ring that has encouraging notes from my friends that I have received over the last several years. It’s great to have them all stored in one place so that I can go back and read through the cards whenever I want.
I decided I would make a blessing ring to hold Christmas cards we receive from family and friends this year. It’s such a fun, cute way to display the cards, and this entire project only cost me $4!
You will need these items for your project….a 5” neck ring with 2 hooks and a few rolls of Christmas ribbon.
This is a close-up of the necklace. I bought it at Hob Lob in the jewelry/bead section. It comes in silver and gold.
The ribbon is from the scrapbook section. It’s Ribbon Trends brand and is 5/8” thick.
To make the ring, hole punch the cards in one of the corners and slide them onto the ring. Then, tie ribbon between every few cards. I saved several pieces of ribbon to tie between cards that we will continue to receive over the next two weeks.
Here is the finished product hanging on our tree.
I love having these all in one place so that I can look through them during the Christmas season.
How are you displaying Christmas cards you are receiving this year? I always love hearing new ideas!
