The Christmas cards you receive from friends and family will make a charming addition to your Christmas décor. You just need to know how to display them. These 5 tips will ensure you never have a tumbling mess on your mantelpiece again!
1. Better than baubles
Adorn your Christmas tree with all your Christmas cards. You can punch a hole in the corner of your cards and weave some red ribbon through them for an extra festive touch. Or simply stick them on the tree using the branches for balance.
2. Making shapes
Sticking your Christmas cards on your wall or on a pin board is an obvious way to display them but get extra creative and arrange them into a festive shape. We love tree shapes for an extra Christmassy feel.
3. Light up your cards
Attach your Christmas cards to a piece of string, or even a long ribbon using mini pegs and hang them from one side of the room to the other or across your mantle. This will look extra special if you weave the string with some fairy lights.
4. Put them next to the condiments
Use some Christmas cards to decorate your dining table. Charming wintery scenes will add a cosiness to the dining experience and they’ll be a nice talking point during dinner.
5. Simple but effective
Hang your Christmas cards as a festive mobile from your ceiling or the back of your door. Use some glittery ribbon if you want to make it extra Christmassy.
Displaying Christmas cards in your living space is an easy way to add some Christmas cheer to your home so get creative and make the most out of all your well wishes.
