Holiday Card Display Ideas
Of all the holiday traditions, sending and receiving cards from friends and family is one of my favorites.
Since we celebrate both Christmas and Chanukah here, we have a lot of traditions. This one thankfully covers both beautifully.
Each year I surround our fireplace mantel in the living room with holiday cards. All the photos and cards from our friends and family members always makes me smile.
A few years ago, I was inspired by Martha Stewart (naturally) to flank both sides of the mantle with grosgrain ribbons. Simple straight pins (like these) work perfectly to attach the cards to the ribbons. You can also use glue dots. This creates two long garlands on either side of the fireplace. The cards look so fun and festive attached to the ribbons in this way.
It’s pretty easy to manage and I always get a lot of compliments about the display. Plus, all the hanging cards always look so welcoming.
While this method seems to suit us just fine, I’m always curious about all the other clever and creative ways people choose to display their holiday cards.
