If you receive Christmas cards in the mail, you might be looking for some creative ways to display Christmas cards this year! Beyond the typical setting them on a flat surface somewhere, these are some creative ways to display Christmas cards that you may not have thought of.
10 Creative Ways To Display Christmas Cards
1. Get creative with ribbons
Hanging strands of ribbon with Christmas cards attached (clothespins make an adorable attachment) can look both festive, simple, and beautiful! Whether you hang vertical ribbons and attach cards cascading down, or you hang horizontal ribbons and make long banners for your Christmas cards, this is sure to be an eye pleaser.
2. Old windows or pallets
Old windows or pallets can make great display pieces for Christmas cards. If you have some lying around, this would be an easy way to repurpose them and if you’ve got a thing for rustic decor, this would make a fabulous addition to rustic home decor for the holidays!
Sleds are easy to dress up and use as Christmas card holders as well. Whether it’s an old sled you don’t use anymore or just a decorative sled, these make a great addition to your holiday decor.
4. Make a “family tree”
Create a tree using small branches from your yard and a vase or get an actual small tree to display Christmas cards on. A few branches and some string garland cane make for a beautiful eye-catching piece for any room.
5. Make banners for chair backs
Some well placed tulle or ribbon on the backs of chairs can make for a great spot to hang Christmas cards from. This display can easily amp up any holiday decor to the next level as well as provide a great spot for all those Christmas cards.
6. A ladder
Have an old ladder lying around? Jazz it up and display Christmas cards on it standing upright! This is a great way to add some decor and display Christmas cards for all to see!
Consider making collages to display your Christmas cards. If you place them all on a wall in a specific shape, you can add some festivity to your decor!
Every Christmas mantel needs a Christmas card! Christmas cards are beautiful and sentimental, and what better place to display them than proudly above the fire? They make great filler decor if you’re doing a decor-heavy mantel or you can hang them above the mantel with some string or ribbon.
9. Turn them into a garland
Either add to a pre-existing garland (or ornaments!) by clipping Christmas cards throughout the length of it or make your own. This garland makes a great frame for doors so people can view them on their way into another room.
10. Painted wooden board
Consider painting or staining a wooden board and putting all the Christmas cards on it. This makes a great larger attention piece for any room. If you have a pallet, you can use this for a card hanger as well.
