The Christmas cards deluge is underway!
And whilst it’s nice to be thought of at this time of year, as the cards pile up they can cause clutter and bring out the bar humbag in some homeowners.
So why not try one of these creative ways to display your season’s greetings and turn the cards into a feature, rather than a faff!
With a piece of string, baubles and a star, create this great Christmas tree outline and attach card with pegs. A how to guide to get this look can be found here: http://www.designimprovised.com/2014/12/simple-diy-holiday-card-display.html
For a minimalist look, spray paint an old CD rack and stack the cards along it as they arrive
If you want to complement a Nordic scheme, creating a mini tree with twigs from the garden and accessorising with fairy lights makes for a stunning display. Try it for yourself by following this step by step guide: http://www.songbirdblog.com/christmas-card-display-tree/
If your fireplace is a feature rather than being functional, keep the surface clear of cards by blocking the hearth off with canvas and creating this ribbon and peg holder as featured in Country Living
Reuse an old picture frame and make a piece of artwork out of your cards. House to Home has advice on how easily you can achieve this effective look http://houseandhome.com/diy-christmas-card-board/
But easiest of all, if you have our ThistlePro Magnetic Plaster you can pop cards (and decorations) up simply using a magnet, and when more arrive you can adapt the display to suit your taste! Now that’s what I call the start to a Very Merry Christmas!
