All you need is one of those Cutie Crates, Halo Crates, Clementine Crates… whatever name you call them.  PS – the kids will eat the clementines and they are healthy for them!!!  Oh and your old Christmas cards, some Mod Podge and a sponge or brush.  And scissors of course.

Once you have the cards in the place you want them, use the Mod Podge on both sides to glue and secure the cards.  You will need a little extra finesse to glue over the staples.  If the card is not sticking to the crate, use gentle pressure to ease the Mod Podge into the nooks and it will eventually meld into each other.

I tried to keep a consistent theme on each side.  I also used a large wreath to stand a little higher in the front.  If you are super crafty and want to go a step further, you can easily decorate the wood pieces on each of the corners.
