5 ways to display holiday cards

Happy December! Mailboxes are beginning to be full of something more than just junk mail…holiday cards! It is that time again when (some of us) are inundated with lovely Christmas cards!

But what do you do with them? Where to put them? The window seal fills up pretty quickly!

No matter if you’re a card-sending person or not, chances are pretty good that you’ll still receive plenty. Or, if like myself, you don’t throw away last year’s ones, bingo! You can start decorating the house with the most dearest old loved ones. (Yes, I have done that).

How can I display greeting cards at home?

There are plenty of ideas that you wouldn’t even think about! Unless you have that outside-the-box thinking required… but that’s why Infarrantly exists, right?

All of these ideas can be used with any other holiday, like Easter or even a birthday, baby shower, etc. and also, depending on how many cards you receive, you might need to use them all!

How do you display a card on a door?

This is going to depend on the type of door first of all. However, I’d say that, regardless of that, the frame is the best place.

If you can “afford” to leave the door open, then place them hanging around the frame, it looks lovely! If not, then glue them carefully so it doesn’t block the door shutting.

Just place them around the frame using Glue Dots

There are also Christmas Card Holders made for that if you are not feeling that bold.
