Easy Way to Display Christmas Cards…

I love sending out our family Christmas cards each year… and of course we all know how fun it is to receive cards, too!  Checking the mail in December can be just a tad exciting, right?? ;)

There are so many fun ways to display Christmas cards, and here’s what I’ve found works well at our home…

Simply string along a pretty ribbon {or even a cord or piece of twine for a more rustic look}.  Affix each end of ribbon with a tack, and make sure the string or ribbon is pulled tight… the weight of the cards will eventually make it sag a bit.  Then hang the cards you receive using small clothespins {found at your local craft store}.  Easy-Peasy!

Then… after Christmas, don’t toss those cards… keep some of your favorites to make Homemade Bookmarks!

How do YOU display your Christmas cards??

    This isn’t a comment about displaying Christmas cards but I do love the way you did it! However, I use a similar method to display photos. I pick a pretty color ribbon to match my room color and use the tiny clothes pins to pin photos to the ribbon. I love this and have had many compliments on it.

    The way our family displays our Christmas cards is pretty similar except for that instead of just on the wall we drape the string in front of the top part of our curtains. Kind of decorates the curtains at the same time with some Christmas colors.

    I display my Christmas cards on my tree! I put up two trees and one is sort of bare so I add my Christmas cards for a little extra pizzazz. Afterwards, I use them to create bookmarks as well!

  4. I’m just jealous of how many you have! I send out a lot of cards but almost no one sends cards out anymore, it seems. I have a grand total of eleven.
    I just attach ribbon my kitchen cabinets and use clothespins to attach the cards. Kinda the same idea, but hung vertically.

    I have a green felt Christmas tree that is about 3 1/2 feet tall and and 3 feet at the bottom, then a little bit of trunk under that, that I pin up on an empty wall. Every year I try to see if I can fill it up with cards. Some years are better that others. I’ve noticed that alot of cards coming are picture postcards. I love seeing friends and family on my tree.
