7 Ways to Display Christmas Cards

Ways to display your holiday and christmas cards

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.

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.

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!
