Personalized holiday cards usually say something about you. I like it when people can guess that it is for me. This is why I adore the cool illustrations at Fabulous Stationery. Their collection would appeal to an interior design, a decor store or a design-savvy family. A nice feature is that any of the patterns can be used for gift tags. It would be more original to select illustrations that share the same theme instead of picking exactly the same.

The last two models (see bottom montage) would make party invites that people will not want to miss.

DIY Holiday-card Wreath

pinup wreath to display holiday cards

Stuffed between sale flyers and credit card bills, holiday cards are a bright spot in mailboxes all season long. Charming and colorful as they may be, it can be a challenge to display cards in a creative, stylish and clutter-free way.

Which is why this clever DIY pinup wreath from Martha Stewart is at the top of my holiday must-make list. Constructed from a wooden embroidery hoop, mini clothespins and a generous length of ribbon, it does double-duty by forming a colorful decoration and keeping cards collected. After the holidays, use it as an inspiration board or for children’s art.

Watch for more ideas on how to display your holiday cards in the coming weeks.

Holiday Card Display Ideas

hanging christmas cards on the wakefield chandelier at pottery barn

Hanging Holiday cards looks better than putting them on a shelf. It allow you to be more creative. You could install clothesline against the  wall, hang your cards on a handrail, transform a pot rack or use a paper chandelier.

Pottery Barn added to their catalog the Wakefield Chandelier. It is a three tiered iron chandelier with 35 clips. Although it comes with preprinted paper clips, I prefer it when people hang postcards and memorabilia that mean something to them.

+ Wakefield Chandelier $ 299 USD

Four Holiday Cards with a Cause

I selected these cute Holiday cards because they carry a good message while serving a cause. First from designer Bonnie Marcus, I like:

+ The Imagine Peace card (Have a peaceful holiday) was designed in collaboration with Nell Merlino, author & founder of “Take Our Daughters to Work Day”. A portion of the proceeds from this card will benefit Count Me In for Women’s Economic Independence, the leading national not-for-profit provider of resources, business education and community support for women owned businesses. $37.50 USD for 25 cards and envelops

+ The World Peace card is a design done with Cindy Crawford, model and activist. A portion of the proceeds from this card will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, whose mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. $37.50 USD for 25 cards and envelops

Moderne Motive
