Country Sampler Special Edition

Barn-Style Backdrop


A wide barn board can make a perfect rustic backdrop for a collection of cards held in place with metal snowflakes. Attach a pair of metal hinges to the board to serve as hangers. Working on a level surface, arrange Christmas cards vertically and horizontal­ly on the front of the board. Pre-drill or punch a small hole in the center of various-sized metal snowflakes. Position the snowflakes around the cards, making sure each card rests under the edges of at least two snowflakes. There should be enough snowflakes on the board that if card sizes vary slightly, they will still fit under one of the snowflake groupings. Attach the snowflakes to the board with small nails, and then slide cards under the snowflake edges.
