Creative Ideas for
Displaying Christmas Cards
We all get them, and then we have to figure out what to do with them.
When folks are thoughtful enough to remember you at Christmas time,
it's only fitting that you should put their card on display in your
home. But all those cards can take up a lot of space and might even
be thought of by some as , dare I say, "clutter". That no
longer needs to be a problem this holiday season - take a look at
some truly precious card-displaying options that might actually
enhance your holiday season décor.
- Vertically hang
one, two, or three bands of 3" wide ribbon from the top of a
door in your living room, dining room, kitchen, maim hall or foyer,
and then pin the cards you receive to the ribbon. This is a terrific
and really attractive solution when you don't have a lot of surface
area to display cards on.
- Stand the cards
up on the outer edges of your staircase (outside of the railing).
- String festive
red pom-pom ball trim across a large window in your living room,
kitchen, or dining room. Then attach the top of each card to the
string of pom-pom ball trim with a clothes pin. Utterly charming! The
trim is available by the yard (or meter) in craft shops and fabric stores.
- Use a hole punch
to make a hole at the top of each Christmas card, then string narrow
satin ribbon through the holes and tie the cards to the backs of your
dining room chairs.
- Attach the cards
all around the frame of a door in a prominent location in your home
using masking tape (other types of tape may damage the finish of the
wood). Guests will find it really interesting to look at when they
arrive in your home.
- Use a round
men's belt rack to display your cards in a circle. Make a hole at the
top of each card with a hole punch, then string a narrow ribbon
through the hole and hang from the circular wire rack. Place the rack
in a prominent location in your living room, dining room, foyer, or kitchen.
- Use double sided
tape to stick them to your windows in a scattered pattern.
- After Christmas,
rather than throwing away the cards you received, think "recycle
and re-use": Cut off the front face of the card, as long as
there is no handwriting on the backside of it, then use a hole punch
to make a hole at the center-top of it. String a narrow ribbon
through the hole, and use the following holiday season as a gift tag.
- Make a Christmas
scrapbook each year, featuring the recipes you prepared, a list of
gifts given and received, photos from the holiday season, etc. Insert
all the cards you received.
