One of my absolute favorite things about the holidays is Christmas cards. For those who get them out early, their arrival really helps build the anticipation of the holidays, and they add such a festive touch to our homes. Getting to see the faces of our loved ones all over our home is so sweet. While I love getting them, every year I struggle to find a place to display them all. Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorite creative ways to display your cards this year. I know I’ll definitely be doing one of these myself!

1. Washi Tape Card Tree
This is super simple and really cute! It would also be a fun way to include a non-traditional christmas tree in a small space. Just measure out your washi tape in lines, gradually getting shorter as you move up. Add string to every other alternating with some tinsel or decorations. Place a star, which you can easily make out of cardboard and glitter, on the top and you have the perfect place to hold all the holiday cards.

2. String Them Up
You can’t lose by simply stringing up some jute or or twine and hanging your cards with clothes pins, especially across a festive mantle or under a gorgeous shelf like in this photo. Make your Christmas cards a real focal point of your holiday decor this year with this simple, yet stunning design.

3. DIY Card Display
If you are looking for a fun DIY and have some extra wall space to fill up, this is the perfect card display for you. Simply assemble the wooden frame using L-brackets, staple chicken wire to the back, and add a festive touch with a wreath. Then start adding your christmas cards as they come in. It’s so cute, you might want to keep this up all year long!

4. Mirrors + Picture Frames
If you do not have a ton of empty wall space, or a beautiful mantel, fear not. Simply add festive tinsel or ribbon to your existing mirrors or pictures frames and attach your holiday cards with paper clips. Super easy, totally inexpensive, and adds the perfect holiday touch to your everyday decor.

5. Greenery Garland
I’m just drooling over this greenery garland card holder. What better way to save space while adding some gorgeous greenery into your home. I particularly love it here in the door way, but this could just as easily be hung from a mantel or down the staircase if you are lacking the right door frame in your house.
