I love Christmas cards! Sadly this year, I didn’t get it together to send any out but I love receiving them all the same. Especially photo cards. Any photo card is wonderful but I’ll admit it – I love the ones with cute little baby photos on them the best.
Because I love them so much, I have a big pile of photo cards from years past that I have saved in a drawer on our buffet. While I love that I still have them, I hate that they are buried in a drawer that I never open.
I had been vaguely thinking how it would be a good idea to drag them out of the drawer. A lot of times my ideas never get past this “I should really…” stage. But this time I happened to come across just the inspiration I needed to take some action.
I came across a photo of a simple string Christmas tree on the wall and knew I had to create my own to hold Christmas cards.
And since I never got around to putting anything Christmas-y on the little chalkboard wall in our kitchen, it seemed like the perfect spot. Of course you can create your own Christmas card tree anywhere – I just like the dark background the chalkboard gives it.

How to make a quick and easy Christmas card display
Y’all, this project was perfect. The only supplies you need are some chunky yarn and glittery washi tape and I seriously finished the whole thing in about thirty minutes. (It would have been way faster but I’m a total perfectionist and I kept repositioning the ‘branches’.)
All you do is tape your yarn onto the wall in a Christmas tree shape. And if you want to get fancy, you can use your tape to add a trunk at the bottom and a star at the top. Then just tape up your Christmas cards wherever you want. Easy peasy!
I love it – especially the gold glitter washi tape! How do you display your Christmas cards? And does anyone else save those adorable photo cards every year?
