I was inspired by this washi tape tree to make something similar, but with sticks! This merry mail tree is perfect for displaying Christmas cards you get in the mail. Instead of adding clutter to your wall, hanging them on the stick tree makes your merry mail part of your holiday décor!
Get started by clipping your sticks into five lengths, descending from 8 inches. I made mine approximately 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36 inches long. My sticks were the straightest I could find: lilac branches from our yard.
The next step is to wrap jute twine around the edges of the sticks, securing it with hot glue. I measured my twine about 7 inches longer than the stick I was gluing it to.
Hang your tree triangles by the twine resting on nails hammered in the wall. Space rows evenly apart (I did not do the best job at this) and add two nails for each layer below the first one.
Lastly, hang your merry mail using paper clips or clothes pins! I also made a video tutorial of the process that is perfect for sharing!
This is the perfect solution for displaying Christmas cards! I love showing off my friends and family’s holiday photos in a prominent spot of our home.
Displaying Christmas Cards on a Merry Mail Tree
As you can see, I also added a few juniper branches to make it even more festive!
This holiday craft is so easy and cute! I put it together in 45 minutes and it costs me next to nothing to make.
Thank you for stopping by! Please let me know in the comments if you will try making this or have made something else cool for displaying Christmas cards in the past. See you next week for my Christmas tree reveal (p.s. it is nothing like last year)! I am so excited to share my theme with you this year! Any guesses?
