There’s nothing better than receiving a holiday card from a friend or loved one in the mail. It makes trips to the mail box better. Many people place the cards on their fireplace mantel, coffee tables or refrigerator, but how about something new this year?
• An easy display idea is to tape each card to
the trim of a large doorway or entryway of
• If the refrigerator is still the best place for
displays, add a long strip of festive ribbon
vertically down the appliance and stick the
cards on the ribbon. it will be easier to
remove later and adds a fun pop of color.
This could also be done on kitchen cabinets.
• Bolster an elaborate stairway railing and use
clothespins or ribbon to attach the cards
along garland for a creative way to add a
spruce of greenery.
• Use a blank wall to create an impromptu
Christmas tree by placing the cards directly
on the wall in the shape of a tree. Start at the
top with just one card, then two cards for the
second layer and so on and so forth. It can be
fun to watch the tree grow as the mail arrives.
• Incorporate the cards into the Christmas tree.
While the cards should sit nicely among the
stems, a hole punch and ribbon could make
sure they won’t fall.
