Displaying Christmas Cards

December 18, 2009

Button Christmas card.The first of December, I put a clean white tablecloth on my dining room table and cover it with a sheet of clear plastic. Then when I get my Christmas cards, I put them under the plastic and wallah, I have a neat decorated Christmas table. I also add pictures of my kids and grandkids with Santa from years past.


This is a nice conversation piece when we sit down to dinner on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

I am going to try this, and put it on the table for cards to be displayed on. You take a tomato cage, clean it and turn the prongs into a point. The prongs will be at the top. You take some wrapping paper and put it around the top and tape it with duct tape.

Don't have a holiday card holder? I have an idea to get those Christmas cards up for friends and family to see. Take a Christmas towel, and hang it on the wall with 2 thumb tacks.

Does anyone know how to make a nice, budget-friendly Christmas/holiday card holder with things from around the house? I want one that can hold a decent amount of cards and not easily fall apart or have the cards fall down? I have three boys.

Thank you.

Use a can opener to remove both the top and the bottom of a juice can; or remove the bottom of a potato-chip can. Use Christmas colored yarns to wrap the can, top to bottom, dropping the yarn in the top of the can, out the bottom, around the outside to drop into the top again until you can no longer see the can. The you just open the cards (like a book) and put one of the pieces of yarn in it, (holding it at the fold.


I hope that makes sense!

You could staple the back of cards to a long ribbon and tie top ribbon to something strong and let cards hang down against the wall or attach both ends of ribbon to door frame and have cards hang down.

I found a perfect shape and size basket on sale almost three decades ago and spray painted it with rustoleum high gloss red. Can move it from table to table and some years set in on the floor in strategic corners.

I used to hang evergreen garlands around the living room to the kitchen door and then use mini-clothespins to clip the cards to the garland. It looked very festive.

Creating a collage using Christmas photo cards is a great way to display these keepsakes that often end up tucked away in a box. Give it a try using the project outlined below.
