It’s officially starting to feel like Christmas! It was snowing yesterday, I have my first Christmas decorations up, plus our holiday cards from Snapfish came in! I made a DIY holiday card display that I’m sharing all the details for today.
For our cards, I ended up making a few different styles including a recap of our year to send to friends and family and loved how everything came out. While we have a tradition of our son being the star of the show on our yearly cards, we also wanted to start taking a family Christmas portrait each year. If you’re shopping for photo holiday cards these printed out very true to the color from my computer screen plus you get a lot of quality for the price. I especially love the thick cardstock option and curved edges on our family cards.
While I love giving and receiving cards every year, I’ve never had a great way to display them. I made this hanging holiday card display with mini wreaths, a branch and twine and it is the perfect way to tie our cards into our holiday decor.

What You Need:
- One good sized branch
- Multiple sizes of mini wreaths
- Monofilament Line
- 1 Screw (to hang)
- Mini clothespins
- Christmas Bells
Steps to create a hanging holiday card display
- Gather your wreaths. I used 4 small grapevine wreaths (.99 cents at the craft store), 4 mini artificial wreaths (also from the craft store), and made one using a metal hoop with fresh eucalyptus, floral wire and Christmas bells.
- Pick your branch. I happened to have cut mine from a tree in my yard but if you don’t have this option you can get something similar at a craft store.
- Arrange your wreaths and branch on the floor in the way you’d like them to hang.
- Measure your twine base on the distance from wreath to branch. Loop around the wreath then tie onto the branch. Cut of the excess twine where you knotted onto the branch.
- Attach more twine below some wreaths (this way you can hang more cards), anchor with Christmas bells to add weight.
- To hang, (you may need 2 people for this part) hold the branch against the wall and measure the center point of the branch. Place a screw (or command strip) above the center point that you marked (I made mine 1 foot higher than my mark).
- Attach monofilament line to branch in 2 areas. 1st, along the centerpoint to hang directly up and down from the screw, matching the length based on the distance between your branch marking and your screw. 2nd, tie monofilament end-to-end on the branch. Hang from each point and adjust wreaths that may have moved.
