Proudly display all the Christmas cards you receive with this simple hanging Christmas card holder project that you can put together in minutes.
Every year we receive many Christmas cards from family and friends. Some of them, usually the photo cards, I put on the side of our refrigerator. However, there is never enough room so I thought it would be nice to have a second area to display the cards.
Why not make a hanging Christmas card holder that can show off all the beautiful cards you receive?
Making A Hanging Christmas Card Holder
I started with a replacement panel for a cube organizer. You can find all kinds of grid-like structures that would work here. Maybe you have something lying around the house. Thrift stores and hardware stores are also good places to find grids.
I hung mine on an existing picture hanger and moved the picture into the closet for the holidays. You could also use small command hooks to hang it anywhere and then remove them later.
I felt like my card holder needed a ribbon. I had some pretty red velvet ribbon leftover from my Christmas Mantel decorations but since it wasn't a wire ribbon I needed to cut the center to help create a bow as shown above.
Then I just wired it to the top corner of the grid.
Once the grid is hung on the wall with a pretty ribbon you can add all of your cards with mini clothespins. It's as simple as that!
You could make a double grid by adding a second panel below or to the side for more cards. You can also buy natural mini clothespins in a variety of colors or paint them in a custom color. I think gold would look nice.
A super simple easy way to decorate your home for Christmas and I know looking at your family and friends' cards as you walk by will make you smile.
