Greeting Card Garlands and Card Displays

By Jill Black

Showcase beautiful holiday cards to create a colorful theme that carries throughout the home. Here are a few simple ways to display your greeting cards and decorate your home this Christmas.

Make Greeting card garlands

Select your favorites from the Christmas cards you've received this year.

Punch holes in each card in varying positions and thread ribbon through the holes.

Bunch groups of cards together for added fullness.

Use simple Christmas ornaments or shiny beads strung onto the ribbon for additional interest.

Hang the garland around your tree, across your fireplace mantel, across a window, through your banister, add to a chair back or over a doorway - the options are endless.

More ways to display your cards

Use inexpensive wood or metal frames and frame the most beautiful holiday cards you receive. Group them together to create a mini-display in your entryway or on your fireplace mantle.

Create a holiday card display board. Use a sturdy foam core board and cover with Christmas wrapping paper. Crisscross ribbons across the board in a harlequin pattern. Slip holiday cards beneath the ribbons for a charming and easily viewable display.

Cut lengths of wide ribbon or green tinsel. Attach cards to ribbon using paper clips or clothes pegs and hang on wall.

Make a card tree. Artificial Christmas trees allow for the branches to be bent and arranged making them ideal for holding cards at various heights.

Display cards in small gilded frames as place cards for the dining room table.

Branches create an airy arrangement for displaying multiple greeting cards. Try assembling a group of birch poles and lean them against the wall. Lash together with festive ribbons and hang holiday cards and special ornaments.

Display on a mantle or shelf tucked amongst greenery and twinkling lights.
