Salvaged Wood Holiday Garlands & A Card Hanger

I threw together four holiday garlands, three mostly with wooden bits. 

The four wood garlands started out with a vintage rag roll "string". 

Perfect size to fit through the wooden beads and wooden "wheels" (which I have two huge baskets of -- and still really don't know their original purpose or what they were salvaged from.) 

The metal letters were the remnants of my collection -- thus the misspelling of "brite".  For some of the others I turned the letters around and glued the paper letters that I wanted to the back.  Nice, chunky and neutral.

The last garland I may not sell.  I used a thinner string and tied little doodads and buttons along the length.  For now I clipped "JOY" to the center with vintage candle clips.  I have a ton more of these candle clips so the plan is to use the garland and clips to hang Christmas cards when they start arriving.
