As soon as the turkey leftovers are gone you can count on one thing — the mailbox will start filling up with holiday greetings and Christmas cards! The two seem to go hand-in-hand. But what do you do with all those cards once they come in the door? We’ve got 7 ways to display the cards in your home — not just sticking them on your boring bulletin board or fridge.
1. Use Holiday Ribbon
In this festive dining room, we used holiday ribbon as a way to string christmas cards in a window. Just pin them up with clothes pins and you’ve got an easy solution for showing off all your smiling friends and family members.
2. Create Shapes
Okay, we lied. This is pinning them to bulletin board, but not in a boring way! Create a festive shape like a Christmas tree for a whimsical touch.
3. Hang Them on a Mirror
You don’t need a bulletin board to pin them up. We slipped them into the edges of this mirror over our mantel!
4. Display Them on a Bookshelf
A bookshelf is a great place to display them. Here we used some beaded garland, but you could easily just lean them up against the spines of your books.
5. Hang Them Over Your Bar
Having a holiday party? Display the smiling faces and festive messages by hanging them over your bar with some twine! It’s an easy and free way to dress up your bar.
6. Pin Them Up in Your Mudroom
Mudrooms are a great place for holiday cards because they already have such a casual feel. It’s also probably where you’re already sorting your mail. Use some colored or metallic binder clips to pin them to baskets, buckets, or bins!
7. Create a garland
Sometimes it feels like a lot to decorate your mantel with candles and garland and all the holiday trimmings. For an easy and inexpensive solution, bring color to your fireplace with a garland of Christmas cards!
