A small or large ladder serves as a Christmas card display when you hang cards off the rungs. Punch a hole in the top left corner of the card, slide a ribbon through the hole and tie the ribbon to a rung. Alternatively, string yarn in an X pattern between the rungs and use red and green clothespins to attach the cards to the yarn.


In the middle of an evergreen centerpiece, place your favorite Christmas cards. The evergreen branches securely hold the cards, and you can customize the display with pinecones, holly or colorful ornaments.


Any door, window or cabinet can become a display case when you hang a wreath from it. First, wrap the wreath with festive fabric or raffia. Then, attach cards to the wreath with double-sided tape or small clips.
