There is just something so special about Christmas cards. I know we don’t get very many anymore in the digital age. But when we do we need to have somewhere to display them. That’s why today I am going to show you a super easy Display for Christmas Cards and Ornaments.
I had this piece of wood that I had previously used as a Halloween decoration but I also wanted to reuse it for Christmas. After all, for anything to survive in my home, it has to be multi-functional. I had painted this piece of wood using chalkboard paint and curated it by covering it with chalk. You can see a tutorial of that process here when I did my holiday signs.
While cruising in blog land I spotted this idea from Shanty2Chic. It was a piece of wood with jute wrapped around and used as a Christmas Card Holder. As soon as I saw this I knew I could do it using my Halloween board. Of course the ladies of Shanty2Chic built theirs from scratch and did an amazing job at that. But you know me, I like to be lazy and reuse my stuff.
I had wrapped twine around the top and bottom of the board and just cleaned it up a bit to get rid of the fake blood and spookiness.
Boy I really exhausted myself. The next step was to attach my homemade ornaments. I used ribbon for that.
The possibilities are endless!
I then added a few Christmas cards.
I told you it was super easy. This board is about 4 feet tall but you can make it with any sort of wood you have lying around. And you can paint the wood any color at all or leave it natural. I chose to leave it this way because I like to reuse my chalkboard so that for the next Holiday I can change it up by writing on it.
I’m slowly getting there. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I do believe that was the easiest project I’ve ever done. And it makes quite a statement. As I’ve said before, and it may be the motto of my blog by now, reuse and repurpose what you have at home. All you really need is a bit of creativity and some craft supplies which you can get below and you have yourself a project that can be used all year long.
I hope you enjoyed my display for Christmas cards and ornaments. Do you have a special place where you display your cards for the Holidays?
