People don’t send as many Christmas cards as they used to, which is a shame, because I love Christmas cards! An eCard or even a nice text is always appreciated, but I’ve always loved Christmas card art, especially when it has a vintage kind of style. So if you’ve got a couple of pretty Christmas cards you want to put on display, check out these great DIY ideas for how to display Christmas cards!
How To Display Christmas Cards- 8 Great Ideas
Displaying your Christmas cards is a lovely way to add some bright cheeriness to your space. There are many delightful ways to display your cards, and I think you will be inspired after seeing these ideas. Here are a few things to consider keeping on hand for when it’s time to display them.
- Ribbons – You can get several different types of inexpensive ribbons and bows to attach the cards to.
- Clothespins – Another fantastic method for hanging the cards is by using clothespins. They are rustic and stylish too. Or you can put washi tape on the clothespins to give them a different sort of look.
- Christmas Lights – You can never have too many Christmas lights! Keeping some small strands on hand is a brilliant way to add some holiday cheer whenever you need them. Use battery operated lights if they’re not in a location where plugging them in would be easy.

I do have a sled, but have other plans for it and that’s too bad because that is a sweet idea. I’m just going to clothespin (with the mini-clothespins) mine to the branch in the living room. It’ll brighten up a corner.
Love all the ideas. However, I don’t receive enough cards these days to devote anything with. I have one of those wire flippy things that I just don’t get out anymore because of so few cards (sad to say). I used to send about a 125+ cards out & have saved all the ones I got (each years pile has diminished substantianly(sp?)). I have even used some in picture frames as decorations.
Each year that I get a card in the mail that I don’t reciprocate makes me anxious that I am not doing my part.

We don’t send Christmas cards anymore. Christmas is such a busy time for us with my husband being in retail. Many years ago I decided I would send Happy New Year cards instead.

Those are all great ideas, I especially like the sleigh.
Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Cindy
The sled one is my favorite. We only brought one sled down to Georgia when we moved here, and Mom uses it for decoration. Who could have known all those years ago that we should have brought all of them.

Great ideas! I don’t have many yet:) Have a blessed day dear Manuela, HUGS!
Great ideas! I always thinks f something cute to do and then end up taping them around the living room entryway like my mom used too. Old habits die hard!
Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita says
Such great ideas! I have two stands, but I am always looking for something to do for the extras. Thanks!
Some really cute ideas, but since I’m doing simple this year – mine are simply in a red Christmas basket by the fireplace. 🙂

I receive no more than a few cards a year. There was a time when they came by the basketful. Now, it is a handful. I get lots of ecards, which is just not the same. I love all these ideas, though. Thanks for sharing!
