So I decided to think out of the box a little bit so I decided to make a Christmas card tree. I wanted them to be in the living room so we can all enjoy them, but I have arranged them in a Christmas tree shape and made them into a feature rather than a nuisance. I have used pins to attach the cotton to the wall, I picked gold end ones as I thought they would stand out and define the tree shape. If you have choice, go for the finest tip you can so that it leaves barely a trace of a hole on your wall. I then used cotton between the pins, doubled up which I fixed by twisting it around the pin. It needs to be fairly tight otherwise it will droop too much, thats also why I used a pin in the middle of each tree branch line. I freehanded the tree because I like that its not perfect because a tree wouldn't be perfect, but you could easily measure out with a pencil first. At the top of the tree I have added a snowflake star and you could always hang cards and decorations too to add your own little touch.
