15 Holiday Card Display Ideas

Every year I try to think of the perfect way to display my holiday cards. This year I made a ladder that I can use to hang our Holiday cards or advent calendar pouches. I made it with hooks on the sides for stockings and larger items to hang and eye hooks in the back and baker’s twine.  Now I can hang cards or even little advent pouches on the baker’s twine, secured with little clothespins. (See it in the gallery.)

Here are 15 FESTIVE ways to display your holiday cards this year!
