rustic card display with American Greetings and Walmart

 

My husband and I celebrated out 10 year anniversary last month but wedding season is still in full swing around here. My baby sister is getting married at the end of this month and we’re all pretty excited about it. Of course, that also means that I’ve been busy with a hundred little things that I’m helping with and I feel like I’ve been falling further and further behind in pretty much every other area of my life (you know, the little things like blogging, cooking, cleaning… little things like that). Luckily, one area I didn’t need to worry about were the cards since I knew I could head over to Walmart and American Greetings would have me covered. Truthfully, Mike and I headed over there the other night during our date night and spent a long time perusing the card aisles while smiling and chuckling over the words on all the cards.

I picked up a few American Greetings cards (and some wrapping paper, because you can never have enough–am I right?) while we were there so now I’ve got my sister’s wedding covered, as well as some other fun days coming up, like National Girlfriend’s Day and Sister’s Day; I know I have plenty of family members and friends who would love some happy mail to brighten their day–no matter how big or small the occasion! You might remember from my Mom Love Fellowship that I am a big fan of snail mail and I think that a few simple words can make such a difference in someone’s day.

building your own card display

One of the things that I wanted to do for my sister’s wedding was create a simple and rustic card display for their gift table. I knew that this would work perfectly with their wedding theme and thought it would be more creative than a basket sitting on a table (no offense intended, I had one too).

Luckily, there are a lot of projects going on around our house and my parent’s house (who happen to live in our same neighborhood) and we have quite a bit of scrap wood and chicken wire laying around, so this project was nearly free, all I had to do was purchase a couple of hinges! Of course, first I had to retrieve some scrap wood from the neighborhood deer, apparently it was too close to their nap space…

Materials Needed:

  • scrap wood cut to the lengths you want
  • chicken wire
  • 8 screws
  • staple or nail gun

If you can work a screwdriver you can construct this simple display. After attaching your four sides together then staple or nail the chicken wire to the back of the frame, then attach two hinges to the sides. That’s all it takes but everyone will be impressed by the awesomeness of your handiwork, I promise.

My dad is one of my favorite guys to work on projects with. Maybe I should pick up an American Greetings card for him next time I’m at Walmart too, huh? With my dad’s help this project came together in no time and I can’t wait to see it in action at the wedding!

And by action I mean sitting beautifully on a gift table at my baby sister’s wedding reception.

I think that this card display would also look great as décor in a dorm room or as a fun way to display Christmas cards!

    This is such a good idea! It’s perfect for weddings or any party! I will definitely think about using this idea around the holidays for all the Christmas cards we get.

    Totally love the display! Maybe for my upcoming baby shower? Also, unrelated but not: American Greetings has that new set of infertility-related cards out and I LOVE their first commercial about them. Wonderful stuff!

    This is so cute and simple! I usually make my own cards but I like to have a few store bought on hand too. Funny story: my dad and step mom gave me the same birthday card three years in a row! Apparently they thought it was REALLY funny. 😉
