12 DIYS of Christmas: Christmas Card Displays
Do you know what to do with Christmas cards that come in every year! Here are four ways that you can creatively display Christmas cards! With simple items like clothespins, flower frogs, or a Santa mailbox, I hope these ideas encourage you to DIY a fun display this year.
How to display Christmas Cards!
Idea 1. Hang as a banner.
For this idea, all you need is cards, clothespins, and any kind of ribbon, jute, or even a string garland. First, I clipped cards to a cute Christmas pom-pom and jingle bell garland. Then, I layered it with another Christmas garland for a fun and festive look. This can be hung on the mantle or across the windows.
Idea 2. Display in flower frogs.
This summer, I found a bag of vintage flower frogs at an antique store for less than $10. I knew immediately that they would make a great display for Christmas cards. If you didn’t know, flower frogs are used to hold stems at the bottom of flower vases. The prongs are great for holding a sheet of paper.
To display them, simply insert the card between the prongs. Next, group them together on shelves with other Christmas decorations. I love the vintage vibes!
Idea 3. Clip to greenery.
Using clothespins, clip cards to greenery garland or wreaths! This is an easy DIY, but it allows you to show off cards from friends and family. Therefore, I love to hang cards above the kitchen sink so I have a nice view when washing dishes.
Idea 4. Stick in the mailbox.
First, find any post box style decorative mailbox, and fill with paper or plastic bags. Then, add cards using tape if necessary to hold in place. Lastly, hang the mailbox on the wall or a wreath.
The ‘Santa Mail’ boxes would be perfect for this. You can find them at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Kirklands or the Findery in Waco, for my local friends. I spray painted this galvanized mailbox years ago, here.
