Crafty DIY Idea to Display Holiday Cards

A grid of festive ribbon within a repurposed picture frame creates pseudo gallery for all your holiday greetings.  


This is a great craft for all cards, but I especially love it for photo Christmas cards.  So fun to have your family and friends decorating your walls duign the holidays! 

Ingredients
  • Repurposed frame
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbon
  • Tape (regular and double-sided)
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure
Directions

Step 1: Remove picture and glass from your frame. Wrap the glass in your favorite wrapping paper or a style that matches your decor.

Step 2: Cut strips of ribbon the length and width of the wrapped glass adding a couple of inches to each. Stretch the ribbon pieces horizontally and vertically across the frame at evenly-spaced intervals.

Step 3: Tape the ends to the back of glass to secure.

Step 4: Place wrapped glass back in frame and hang on your wall.

Step 5: Hang folded cards from the horizontal ribbon. Use double-sided tape or push pins to attach flat cards.

Tip

In addition to cards, add other embellishments such as a cardboard monogram or small ornament to decorate the display. And if you have an old frame that isn't being used, paint it a fun holiday color before adding the card display.
