Christmas cards are a common sight in your mailbox during the holidays and using them to decorate your home is a natural response. The most common ways are placing cards along a fireplace mantel or hanging them on the wall in the shape of a Christmas tree. While these classic options look great in your home, you can do something different. This year, take your folded holiday cards and display them in a more unique way. Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Hanging Christmas cards from your ceiling frees up wall space for other decorations you may want to hang and adds some elegance to your decor. Consider some cross-crossed ribbons in festive colors that you can hang both streamers and cards from. If you still really want to make a tree out of your cards, try a few strings of varying length to hang a three-dimensional card tree from your ceiling.
Another hanging option for your Christmas cards is in the front windows of your home. If you already use dark curtains for privacy or because you have plenty of internal light sources, then you can completely plaster your window with cards and suffer no loss of light. However, if your windows are a main source of light for your front rooms, consider stringing a ribbon across the top sill and hanging a row of cards from that.
Show your appreciation of your family and friends by displaying the folded holiday cards they send you in the mail. Keep your favorites and display them year after year in unique ways to add a touch of creativity to your regular decor. Will the cards you send out rate such high treatment? Pick from our many custom options for Christmas and seasonal cards. Plus, pick up some address labels and postage stamps to match.
"We send photo Christmas cards to close family and friends. I am a mom with two daughters and have done a variety of themes. This year is perfect! We vacationed in Costa Rica and have amazing photos to share. The Feliz Navidad card is perfect. It's not Halloween yet and I'm ready to send them out. Thank you for your wide selection and beautiful designs! It is worth the extra price to me over what Costco or CVS have to offer."
"the quality and the vintage look of these cards were beautiful! I received many compliments on how pretty our cards were this year :-)"
"Love the options of choosing color. Paper quality and picture quality is excellent. Looking forward to doing this again next year already!"
"I used this card to inform family members about a boy I sponsor in Honduras to ask for donations in his name this holiday season. Thus, the "Feliz Navidad" was very appropriate...I simply added his name beneath this (instead of a family name like the example provided), and a quote in print beneath his name."
