How to Display Christmas Cards Ideas

How to Display Christmas Cards Ideas is a necessity once they start rolling in. 

 First comes Halloween then Thanksgiving and usually the day after that I start getting Holiday cards in the mail. Especially with Thanksgiving hitting so late this year it is bound to happen.


I have been using the same holiday card display since we moved to this house. A large ribbon hanging on a wall and I staple them on so they hang.

I wish I had taken a photo of this in years past. I thought I would share some creative holiday card displays.


 How to Display Christmas Cards

My holiday card display sort of looks like this but it is a much bigger bow with several pieces of ribbon hanging on and over 75 cards dangling below.



I now want to figure out some other fun and creative ways to display Holiday Cards. I decided to see what clever ideas were awaiting on Pinterest and sharing them with you. 

HANG the cards from lights..  These will surely show off in the night time.  What a fun way to display photos and cards anytime of year

Here is how we display our Christmas Cards on a Ribbon.

There are 4 strands of ribbon coming down.  You can probably just purchase a ribbon tree topper and hang that on a wall instead of making one.

How simple is this, finding a pre-made  Holiday sign and adding ribbon.



Don’t have anywhere to hang your cards, how about making these adorable books, that will last each year. I have a friend that does this.
