Each year, most families have a tradition of sending out Christmas cards to their friends and family filled with wishes of Peace, Love, and a Joyful Holiday Season. Receiving a multitude of cards from our loved ones, comes with the task of finding a way to showcase them all! I wanted to put together some display ideas for your Christmas cards that will not only be functional, but stylish as well. What better Christmas decorations are there than lots of festive cards hanging on your wall!
There are many different ways to display your cards, from quick and easy to more time consuming. A very simple way to showcase all of the cards is to tape them directly onto your refrigerator! I have a friend that does this, and she even keeps the cards up year round. If I were to do this, all of my daughters artwork and school papers would have to be taken down, so this idea is not the best for my family.
Another idea for displaying your Christmas cards is a very crafty one. All you need to do is purchase an embroidery hoop at your local craft store, smaller size if you only expect a few cards, and a larger size if you expect more. You will also need to purchase some Christmas ribbon. You could just use one strip of a very wide ribbon, or you could use a variety of smaller ones to give it a more whimsical look.
When you have the base complete, add some clothespins where you want to clip on your cards. To spruce up the clothes pins even more, just take some Holiday wrapping paper or scrapbook paper, and tape a strip onto the top of the pins, trim to size, and viola! You have made a cute display for your Christmas cards! To make an even larger display, create 3 of these and place them on the wall next to each other.
Here is another idea that I found that is very interesting and unique! Instead of using a ribbon, which is a great idea as well, this person used some extra chain from a light that they were hanging in their house. You could easily just buy some lighting chain from a hardware store, buy some white spray paint, and make your own! Really, you could use any color that you like, or you could use some glitter spray paint to make it fun and sparkly!
Another great thing about this idea, is that you can hang up many different Christmas elements like ornaments, bells, and bows! By far, this idea is my favorite because of the endless possibilities that you have in creating and decorating it.
