Ruler Holiday Card Display and Free Printables!

ruler holiday card display and  printable at tatertots and jello

 

I’ve been looking for a unique way to display holiday cards at the cottage, and I came up with this vintage idea … and a printable to go along with it!

It’s easy to make: I’ll show you how I did it, share a free printable for you — and share 11 more free Christmas printables, too!

To make the ruler Christmas card display, here’s what I used:

1. a folding wood measuring stick. A vintage one would be awesome, but if you can’t find a vintage one, your local hardware store should have a new one for about $15-16, like this one from Lowe’s.  You can distress and age it if you buy a new one.

2. Small clips

3. a yardstick (cheap!) from the local hardware store

4. A nail or hook for hanging

 

I folded the wood ruler — as you can see in the picture above — in a triangle shape. To hold the base together, I cut a three-inch piece from the yardstick and hot glued it on the bottom of the folded triangle. Then I placed the small clips in strategic locations and hung it on the wall.

I used the clips to attach holiday cards to the rulers — make sure you have enough clips!

To complete the project, I used a small, 5 x 7 inch, Cut It Out frame that I spray painted red to add a pop of color. (I hot glued it onto the folded measuring stick after I was done.)

 

“There’s no place like home for the holidays” printable

And in the frame, I placed a copy of the printable I’m giving you, free! You may want to print it on card stock, since it has a chalkboard look, and glossy paper might not look as good, but it’s up to you!

Just right-click this link or the image below and choose “save as” to download the free printable. (As always, it’s for personal use only.) It’s in high resolution JPG format, so just choose the 5×7 size when you print it.

    Thank you so much! My husband and I bought our first house a few months ago, and I have been looking for a sign with exactly that saying on it… I printed a large size and it was the perfect prop for our Christmas card picture! Perfect timing!!

  5. Cute idea! I love it…I just stick all my cards in a cute basket, but this is much better.
