4 Ways to Turn Christmas Cards into Decor Pieces

Craft pretty garlands and cute wall art


It's always nice and heartwarming to receive a card from a friend or a loved one during the holiday season. Nowadays, when most people would rather send a text message or an e-mail, you can't help but appreciate the effort put into writing a card and mailing it.

If you've kept all of the cards that you've received over the years, you may want to turn them into cute and quirky decorations for your home. Doing this gives your space a warm and personal touch, plus, it helps you save on money, too! Be inspired by these ideas:

We're used to seeing plain and glittery garlands adorning staircases and walls at home. Take things a notch higher by attaching a few cards. You may use strings or clothespins to accomplish this project.

Card Tree

If you don't have a space to accommodate a tree, you can create one with the use of a few cards, some garlands, and cutouts. Make use of a plain wall by having levels of cards—make sure that it resembles a tree. Stick a star cutout on top as a finishing touch.

Living room display

Your living room has to be kept clean and open so that guests can move around freely. If you have an extra louvered panel at home, use it to display colorful Christmas cards and photos. Complete the look by hanging mini stockings and postcards, too.

Memo board

Aside from crafting a tree or using a louvered panel, you can also turn a plain memo board into a decor piece. Liven it up with cards, photos, and string lights for a whimsical touch. Once done, you can display it in the living area or bedroom.
