Creative Way to Hang Your Christmas Cards!

Every year I go through the same thing. WHERE am I going to stick all the Christmas cards?!?! See I don’t really have anywhere to stand them. My husband would kill me if I stuck thumb tacks all over the walls so they left me to taping them in the doorways. It looked great but come every January I cringed taking them down praying to God that the stain didn’t come off with the tape and I’d live to see another day.

Then hoping on Pinterest I saw the perfect fix. Duh? Leave it to Pinterest!

Take nice ribbon and some clothes pins and you have a tape free, hole free solution that makes everyone a little happy.
See, I made sure that the ribbon was about a foot longer then it needed to be so it would overlap. Then I stapled it in three spots to make sure that it wouldn’t come lose.

Then I took it a step further and put green and red glitter glue down the clothes pins so they’d be a little more festive.

Now, I have them out where we can see them and they are easy to take down. I can even just use a staple remover and save the ribbons and clothes pins for next year! I love this and I can’t believe something so simple never dawned on me. Clearly, a ah-ha moment!


I’ve been doing this for a couple years now and it’s been working great. The little clips are a pain so I’ve grabbed some bigger ones that IMO look just as good. Here’s the same ribbons still being used:

    Looks Great! I have a countdown Christmas tree and it has a pocket on it for Christmas Cards…but I want to display them. So I may have to try this out!

  2. How neat! I usually just tape the cards around the big window I have in the kitchen where everybody can see it when they walk in

  3. Looks really good!

    I have to mail mine out. I have them now! WOO HOO!

    That is so fun! I put ours in a basket and then the following year, Abby can cut the pictures out to play with. She made placemats for her and her cousins a few years ago with the cute Christmas cards.

    That is a perfect idea, I’m going to try that!

    Thanks for hosting once again Wordless Wednesday. I may not get to blog-hop very often, but when I do I do enjoy it so I can browse around everyone else blog. Have a great day!

  8. Great idea! Adorable.

  9. Whoa! That is such a cool idea! Right now I have them on our side door, but also a few on our paneling, and your right if any coloring comes off my hubby is going to blow a stack, and there’s no way to cover it too unless I put a picture up. ~snicker-snicker~ Hey Jenn, How ya feelin’? Is that baby beatin’ ya up yet? Is she playing volleyball in there or is he playin’ football? How all is well & have a great WW!

  10. Great idea!!

  11. I do something similar but with blue tack and on the sides of my molding between my foyer and the “formal living room” (read: homework room). It works great – but I love the ribbon and such you used!

  12. Dee says

    Cute! I saw something similar recently – probably on pinterest! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. That’s a great idea! We don’t do Christmas cards much anymore, our family is so small anyways but I love this idea for displaying them.

  14. pretty ribbon too. those cabinets are beautiful. did you just stapel into the inside of the cabinet door right? My hubby would blow up more over staple holes on the outside of the door than tape reside that you can wipe off with mineral oil. ~holiday hugs~

    • Jennifer says

      No I stapled one end of the ribbon to the other end of the ribbon.

  18. Cute idea.

  19. What an genius idea!
    Sheeesh, I would have never thought of it ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful! That’s awesome! Gotta love Pinterest!!

  21. Abbey Colbert says

    I love this idea. I have a wall hanging reindeer to put mine up on but they overlap and I can’t fit very many. I bought my mom one that stands on the floor and can hang stockings or gift bags from. I never thought about what people do with cards.

  22. jamie kelsey says

    This is a great idea I may give this a try myself!!

    Pintrest is awesome and all my friends are constantly talking about it. For some reason it’s taking forever for them to process my request to join though ๐Ÿ™

    Love how you used these to jazz up your kitchen cabinets. SO cute.
