If you’re looking for a fun way to showcase your holiday cards this year, create a holiday display — with a beach-inspired theme! Start with a large picture frame.  Replace the glass with chicken wire. [Click here to see how to attach chicken wire to frame.]

I used Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint for this project.

Paint the frame with one to two coats of chalky finish paint.  Let dry between coats.

Using a second color, paint the sides of the frame.

Apply a varnish to the frame.  I used Americana Decor Light Satin Finish varnish.

Create a banner using card stock and large alphabet stamps. Cut squares from card stock slightly larger than letters. 20151102_085152

Lightly paint stamps using a foam brush, and then press stamp firmly onto card stock.  I spelled out “Coastal Tidings.”

Paint clothespins.  Create banner and attach to frame.

Hot glue peppermint stick to clothespins, tie with twine and glue to  both ends of the banner.

Add holiday and beach-themed embellishments to top and bottom corners of frame.

As you receive holiday cards in the mail, attach them to the display frame with clothespins.
