I’ve finally started my Christmas decorating and thought I’d show you the various methods I’m using for displaying all the Christmas cards that we receive from friends and family.

This is a card display rack from a store that no longer used it. I spraypainted it black and put it on our entry dresser.

This is a fun little wreath that takes almost no crafting skills. At all. I promise.

All you need is a wire hanger, burlap, and ribbon.

Form the wire hanger into a circle shape. Cut burlap into 4-5 inch wide strips. Fold the strips into accordian-shaped stacks and poke the ends of the wire hanger through the middle of the stack of burlap. (I hope that makes sense) Repeat the process until the wreath is full and hang with a ribbon.

Another Christmas card display idea is to use a shutter.

I bought this shutter at Goodwill and painted it red. Hubs attached a wood base to the bottom so that it has support to stand up, but it could also be hung on a wall. Just put cards into the slats and you’re done!

I also hung some string up and attached cards to the string with clothes pins. I actually keep this up all year round and hang random pictures that we receive. Simple and fun.

Don’t you just love getting all those Christmas cards this time of year? So fun. I hope this gives you some ideas on how to display them!
