I love decorating my house for the holidays with items I already have. In this case I had plantation shutters in my basement that I had picked up over a year and a half ago at the Brimfield antique fair. I didn’t really buy this with intention but just knew I loved the shutters. 

Every year I am fortunate enough to get a bunch of Holiday cards in the mail. I always struggle on how to display them. Last year I did a fun washi tape display on my wall but with some of the cards being so heavy I was constantly picking cards off the floor. So when I was tasked with today’s theme of home decor I knew this was a project I wanted to tackle and I was off to the basement to shop my own supplies. 

I started off by deciding where this display was going to live and ultimately decided on my sofa table. Not wanting to put wood on wood I made a burlap table runner for the shutters to sit upon. 

I picked up some miniature clothes pins from amazon. I used these to hold the cards to the shutter. 

This project was so simple and an easy way to decorate for the holidays. I may even keep this up all year long because I am at the age where I am getting a wedding invitation in the mail about once a month. 

I just want to reiterate you don’t have to go out and spend tons of money on holiday decor when you can just get creative and shop your own home. You never know what you might find in your basement. 

Now here’s the moment we have all been waiting for. What are the other party goers up to today? What did these ladies make with for their home decor project?! Make sure to check them all out.

  1. Michelle, this is such a clever idea for displaying your cards! I love it! I’ve tried the washi tape display in years’ past and had the same problem… I don’t have a solution for this year yet. So I may need to go hunting for a shutter! Thank you so much for inviting me to join in the Holiday Craft Party fun this week – it has been a blast!!

  2. This is such a great idea, Michelle! I always want to display my cards but don’t want to stick them in a basket. Now, I know just what to do with them. Thanks for sharing! :0)

  3. Such a creative way to make holiday cards part of the Christmas decor. Thanks for sharing your projects with the holiday craft party this week! 🙂

  4. What a fabulous and frugal idea! It looks perfect on your table. Love those burlap poinsettias too!

  5. Wow ! this is such a beautiful weekend craft. These DIY wooden card holders and frames these looks amazing. You have given such a great idea. All the wooden stuff looks cool.

  6. I wanted to share with you that I used your idea with a small tweak. I actually pinned my Christmas cards to the plantation shutters I have in my kitchen. We used to have one of those hanging racks but we could never really enjoy the cards we received. So when I saw your post earlier, I knew what I was going to do.
    Thanks for the idea! I really enjoyed the cards this Christmas season.
