5 Ways to Display Your Holiday Cards

Last week, we gave you some tips on how to make a stand out holiday card. This week, we want to share with you some equally stand out ways to display the beautiful holiday cards you’ve receive from friends and family! We’ve got a round-up of some of our favorite ways to show off those cards. Idea #1: Make a holiday card wreath.

Holiday Card WreathJazz up pre-made holiday wreaths by attaching cards in various places. We love this idea, because there is no need to fill up the entire circle. The wreath itself will fill in any missing gaps.

If you’ve got more than a few cards to display, why not try your hand at this wreath holder craft from Gwenny Penny? With a wire hanger and some clothespins, you can have your own custom holiday card holder!

Crafty DisplayIdea #2: Tape cards in the shape of a Christmas tree on the wall. This is something my family used to do. My mom would collect all the holiday cards we received that year, and strategically tape them onto the wall in the shape of a Christmas tree. The cards were spaced out so that the sentiments inside folded cards could be easily read at any time during the holiday season.

If you’ve got mostly flat cards with beautiful family photos, try out Amy Locurto’s Christmas tree idea. Each holiday card can be seen and your tree will take up less space!

Idea #3: Hang your cards on a tree.

Idea #4: Create a garland with your holiday cards. With the use of some Dollar Store clips, Debbie from The Happy Scraps created a ribbon garland holiday card holder.

Holiday Card GarlandIdea #5: Lattice Card Display Our last idea comes from the Crafty Texas Girls, who used a lattice wood panel and some clothespins to create their holiday card display. We love the basis of this design, which easily lends itself to tons of customization options. You can alter the top of the display, getting creative and using your own design. Because the lattice board is a great canvas, you can create a border or accent your display in multiple ways!
