Merry Readers - we have a treat for you today... remember Holly? Of course you do - her family did the ADORABLE cards with PJs of Christmas past we featured on Tuesday. Well today she is here to share all about her favorite ways to display these amazing cards we have all started planning.
I ran across this on Pinterest and had to giggle. But, isn't it the truth?! Summer flies by. School starts back up and before you know it the kids are picking out Halloween costumes! Then you realize, holy heck, we've got to get our Christmas card together! The Merry Mommas have ideas galore to help you design your card but today I want to share some of my FAVORITE ideas on Christmas card displays! From the day after Thanksgiving (for those over achievers) to even a day or two or three after Christmas (for those that are bound and determined to get them out), my most FAVORITE thing to do is check the mail. I absolutely love receiving Christmas cards! The majority of the cards have pictures and I always love including them with my holiday decorations. While perusing Pinterest, I've come up with a few easy and MERRY ways for you to display your Christmas cards this year!
So cute and so easy - that's my FAVORITE! Use reusable adhesive so removal will be a breeze! You can use the cards to create a shape, add twinkly lights or washi tape, or simply arrange them around your door.
This is great use of space! Simply add your cards to a ribbon on the wall or hang them from the banister - ta da! Instant Christmas decorations!
What a fun way to decorate windows or doorways! So simple - so easy - my FAVORITE way to decorate!
A few of my FAVORITE ideas were items using household items that you might have laying around your house. Ribbon, paperclips, an unused wire wreath, wire hangers - if you have any of these items you're set to display your Christmas cards like a pro!
And, what about when Christmas is over? It's always a sad day when I have to take down the cards. I know the time and money that went in to these works of art and I just can not bring myself to throw them away. Years ago, Shelly and I would get together in January and scrapbook our Christmas cards. Sadly, I'm behind a few years but I have them in ziplocks just waiting on that free weekend with nothing to do! :) But, if you need a little inspiration, check out this awesome idea!
Thank you so much, Cindy and Katy, for letting me share a few of my FAVORITE things! I hope you guys enjoy these easy and MERRY ways to display Christmas cards. Oh, and did you realize there are only 17 Fridays till Christmas?! Have a blessed day! Gig 'em and God bless!
