  1. Door Ribbons

    Slide1

    Adorn your door with holiday cards. All you need is a length of decorative ribbon on which to attach them. You can do the same thing on a kitchen cabinet, a column, or newel post. The cards in this photo have clips on them, which in turn are hung on buttons attached to the ribbon. A stapler would do the job just fine, though.

    Once you’ve taken in your tomato cages after the harvest, they can serve a second purpose before the end of the year. Just tie the open end together with some twine to create a cone shape. Then decorate with a little festive paper and start hanging your cards with binder clips as they come in from the mailbox.
