In The Cards

Finding the perfect spot to display your holiday cards can often be a difficult task.  It seems that no matter where I place them, they are either falling over or collapsing, completely destroying the vignette I have so tediously created.

Last week, one of my favorite bloggers, Emily A. Clark featured this Martha Stewart Christmas Card tree.  It resembles my Wedding Wish Tree and I love it.

So, as the Christmas cards begin to pile up in your mail box, how are you planning on displaying them?

Here are a few creative ideas from around the web....

Staircases and doorways offer a more traditional place to display your Christmas cards.  Just punch holes in each card, then string them onto ribbon and intersperse them in your garland with ornaments.

Leftover lengths of ribbon provide an easy display option as well.  You can easily attach the cards to a velvet, grosgrain or satin ribbon with double-sided tape, clothespins or by cutting slits in the back of each card and sliding them onto the ribbon.

An embroidery hoop with clothespins, a burlap covered wreath and a wire wreath are just a few creative methods to arrange your holiday cards.

Frames work too....They can be used to display cards by either hanging them with string or ribbon or by mounting them on a fabric covered framed bulletin board.  And don't forget any available mirror space in your home.  You can tuck the cards into the frame creating a wreath-like effect or attach ribbon with double-sided tape and string your cards across the mirror.
