Holiday Card Displays
One of the traditions that abounds this time of year is the exchanging of cards. These cards serve both to bestow seasonal greetings upon your relations as well as to establish yourself and your style via the vehicles of font choice, photo selection, and sign off line. Some might argue that your holiday card reveals more about you than even your shoes. Need to announce a new family member? Make like the Tuohy’s and blind side them all by planting the new face on your card under the heading “Happy Holidays!” Or showcase your classic taste, your restraint and refrain from vanity by using a photo of your water dog, Bo, prancing through the snow, rather than your family. Well, wouldn’t you, too?
If your social circle is filled with holiday card senders, there’s a good chance you’ll find your mailbox bombarded with greetings. Don’t tell me you’re just going to throw those up on the fridge– how utterly pas·sé! No, no, the latest mode is to create a holiday card display.
Amassed for your pleasure below are many photos of how you might implement this idea in your own home:
String a chain across a window and use paperclips to hang your holiday cards.
A string and some small hooks will work just as well.
A string and any sorts of clips, in fact.
This gives a nice effect: Use pieces of ribbon to loop through circular paper clips, tie them around a string, and clip up your cards.
Clothes pins will nearly always get the job done.
You can also pin or tape your cards to some ribbons.
Or just tack them up to the nearest pin board.
Heck, who needs the ribbon and board? Just plaster those babies straight onto the wall! Go on, live on the edge! Risk some small paint chips, I dare you!
Lastly, if you’re feeling Martha-y, create a unique display for your cards. Martha here, well she made a card tree. Naturally.
Happy hanging and happy holidays! And don’t forget that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we shouldn’t assume things k bye!Image credits: Centsational Girl, HomeLife, Redbook, U Decorate, Martha Stewart, Selina Lake, Country Home, Midwest Living, Minted, House and Home, Domino Magazine, Home Life, Martha Stewart
