Easy, quick holiday card display

Easy and inexpensive holiday card display on door

Hello all! I hope your week is getting better with each day!

I wanted to share a super quick, easy way I display our holiday cards – I started doing it a couple years ago and have been meaning to blog about it every year since.

All you need is some ribbon and a door. Told you, easy!

OK, there are a few other minor things, but really, it’s simple. I change up my ribbon every year, but you could use the same year to year too:

I bought this candy cane stripe years ago and love it. Here’s a similar ribbon if you like this look!

I just wrapped it around our coat closet door and secured it inside with upholstery tacks (cause that’s what I had handy): easy door holiday card display

Yes, it will put a small hole in your door, and no, no one will ever notice it. I just use the same holes year to year.

Just wrap the ribbon around top to bottom and across the door. Then you’ll need something to hold the cards on. I found these little tiny clothespins years ago at a craft store but you can find them here online:

They aren’t super strong but hold a card just fine.

It takes about five minutes to set up and no time at all to add new ones as the cards come in:

And I love having it out in the open where everyone can admire the pretty cards:

Last year I put a big puffy bow in the middle to make it look more present-like, but I lost a lot of card space with that bow, so it’s gone this year. 🙂

By the way, I’m pretty darn proud of myself. That closet is still organized!:

I added a few more cards today that we received over the weekend and there’s still plenty of room for more:

You know, for those who send their cards out at the last possible minute. Like…uhh, someone I know. Someone who is typing this.

How do you display your cards? Do you send them out every year? Are yours out already? It’s become one of those things that I’ve decided to be OK with not doing if I don’t have time. Most years something’s got to give! 🙂
