I actually had several readers ask where I put our Christmas Cards we receive in the mail. Or for any ideas I had on displaying Christmas Cards. As I was hanging up our cards, I thought, this might be too late to share. But then I remembered that I left our Christmas Cards up until the end of January last year. I just couldn’t part with all the cute faces. So let’s embrace the way we display our Christmas Cards. I asked all of my readers to share pictures of how they display their Christmas Cards and I got over 50 photos! So let’s take a look at them, but first I want to show you our Christmas Card this year!
There we are! I partnered with Tiny Prints on our Christmas Cards this year. I was looking at two different companies and I really liked the clarity of the card after I uploaded our photo. Love that you can shop the cards and your picture is in every single card at a quick glance. To be honest I didn’t love our picture. I mean, I just didn’t like where we took them after seeing them in card form. They felt too busy. I almost re-took them but remembered one of my favorite sayings “Done IS better than Perfect!” So I made it work. I switched it to black and white and that simplified the photo.
All of the pictures of the kids were so cute. I personally just find it easiest to take them at our house. I set up the tri-pod for our family photo and it does the job.
This December has been super busy. So I asked my husband, Kevin for his help and he uploaded ALL of our addresses to Tiny Prints. Then Tiny Prints printed ALL of the addresses on our cute envelopes! This saved me HOURS!! And now that they are in there we can use this every year and easily add a new address.
One of my favorite ways to display Christmas Cards is with a ring. Make them into a little book. I actually have done this for the past two years and have saved them with our Christmas Decor. When it is time to take them down I punch a hole in the corner and we are set! I catch my kids looking at them all the time.
This is one of my favorite spots to display our Christmas Cards, on a large piece of art we have upstairs, in our family room/guest room. They are fun to have up when guests stay in this room.
Below are 35 Ideas to Display Christmas Cards from all of you! If you sent me an image and it is not here, I truly apologize, it was hard to keep track of all of all the photos I got and some were too dark or hard to see the cards. Or I got them too late after I had made the collage. I will compile ideas like this again so please share with me when it comes up again!
