Christmas Card Display Ideas

Christmas Cards...? I love 'em.

The sound of Mr Postie dropping a lovely bundle of cards through our letter box has to be in my Top Ten Christmas Sounds. 

But it's so easy for the house to turn into Mrs Clutterbucket's at Christmas, with those very cards on every surface.
{Not to mention the dust...the less said about the dust, the better...}

What's a girl to do?
Is it possible to have a beautiful Christmas Card Display?

Here are some ideas I've dug up to get your crafty taste-buds drooling....

Aren't they great?

That shutter idea is so clever...

And cards on scrolled iron-work?

I'll be sharing my own Christmas Card Display idea verrrry soon...

First, though, I'll be showing you my felt Christmas Pud decoration,
You're gonna love it!

First one is my fave, doesn't it look lovely? I agree so much about the dust and clutter, it starts to really bug me so this year we are going all simple and streamline! 1 Christmas tree, two wreaths, a wooden nativity scene, candles and fairy lights and our christmas cards get tucked between the books in our sittingroom bookshelves - they don't fall over and if I come over particularly mad stepford wife, I can dust under them. ;)

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

I mean the message side of the cards go between the books, the picture side on view - is that obvs, didn't want you imagining I hide them out of view between books, now that would be minimalism gone laa laa!!Bxx

That's so funny, Belinda!! I *did* think that!! It certainly would be one way around the dust problem - and a lovely surprise during the year to find those cards tucked away!!


Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Sarah those are wonderful ideas!! I am really drawn to the frame but love them all!!

michelle said...

Hello darling!!! I hope you are doing well and enjoying all of the holiday yumminess! I love these ideas, I am very much a Clutterbucket when it comes to cards, they seem to be scattered all over. :) I can't wait to see what you have going on.
Enjoy the season!!!

Elizabeth said...

Hello! I have been missing your posts, I have been off to Paris. I love the felted hearts and will by tring those this week. And these card displays...I love the little tree and my favorite is the guilded mirror. All are wonderful ideas!

CAn I tell you that I was more than disappointed to see the house from the holiday was not real!!! Shocking!

Thank you for sharing your holidays!

Fantastic ideas and I love to make and receive cards too! I just wrap a picture that's hung on our wall with wrapping paper and then make some twine going across 3 or so times and then hang all my cards on there, it looks great!

Have a delicious day!

I would maybe try one and four sometime!

Cindy said...

Those are some great ideas, thanks, I especially like the one of the cards hung on the tree, I have never liked what I do with my cards. I end up taking them down very soon, because I can't stand the feeling of too much clutter.
Hugs, Cindy

I love all those - I haven't seen the shutter one pretty. I can't wait to see what you do with yours. Mine are in a basket for now..

Casa Très Chic said...

All so beautiful and creative. My favorite is the first pic.

Natasha @ Keeping the Christmas Spirit Alive, 365 said...

They are all wonderful ideas. I especially love the idea of putting them on a tree-very festive!

Hope you have had a good start to the week-isn't this the best time of the year!

Best Christmas wishes,

I have a large photo print in my loungeroom which has glass on it. I put some Blu-tac (removable sticky putty) on each card and pop them on the glass. After a while all you see is Christmas cards in a frame! Then if I run out of room I head to the other wall with the large framed mirror and away we go!!!!! I've been doing that for over 20 years and people always comment on how clever and how out of the way they are.
I love the ideas you have shown. Next year I might do a little tree one!

lizzybradbury said...

Such clever ideas, I never even thought of displaying my cards in that sort of way and it solves the problem of them keeping falling down and of dust!

The first is my favourite, I love the idea of the natural branches plus you could probably pick them up anywhere in the countryside!

Meera @ firstsense said...

Love this post and the fab ideas for Christmas card displays (the images have also given me some ideas for making my own cards!). The first idea is my favourite!

Melissa K @ Lulliloo said...

These are all great ideas, I think I like the vintage mirror with the cards the best :) Melissa x

Jen said...

Wonderful ideas--inspirational! Thank you.

Anne said...

Great ideas! Love the picture frame and shutters especially. Hope you're enjoying the holiday season, Sarah!

Bluebells and Lavender said...

Methinks I need to get creative with some branches, string and card...great post, great ideas!

Redlilocks {Swoon Worthy} said...

Oooh I love the first image, that's a fabulous idea and looks ace! So many good ideas here, brilliant post!

At the moment, I have a ribbon strung across the mantle and hanging cards there but when I run out of room on there, not sure where they will go! Is it also completely over the top to hope that peoples' cards don't clash too much with my colour scheme? Yeah I thought so too. Hmm.

Lovey ideas, I've just put them up with clothespins on our Advent Tree. :-)

Michele said...

Such great ideas! I have a slight obsession with Christmas cards, but I'm not really sure how to display them. Thanks for the inspiration.

CHRIS said...

Very creative ideas.. I do like the shutter idea and the banister one..always looking for a different way to enjoy the cards. Look forward to seeing what you have come up with for your cards.
