Christmas Card Organization

December 19, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

Last year, I was overwhelmed and felt literally buried in photograph Christmas Cards.  I wanted to display all of those beautiful pictures of the new babies of our family members and friends, but where could I possibly put them all.  I originally tried plastering them to the refrigerator, but that got a bit overwhelming.  I finally came up with the perfect solution a Christmas Card Garland.  I used a lit garland and pinned the cards to it.  I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome.   I found the pictures difficult to take because of the placement of the garland over the opening over our breakfast bar.  Not to worry though, there’s a video tour at the end of the post.

I brightened the next picture so that you could get a clear picture of how the opening goes straight from the living room through the kitchen and into the dining room.

I pinned the Christmas cards with clothespins that I embellished with glitter for a little added holiday flair.  This card is our munchkin.  She’s quite the ham.

    Coming over from SITS. What a cute and creative way to display your Christmas cards without them being in the way! I love all the picture cards that everyone is using recently!
