Introduction: Make a Holiday Card Holder That's Perfect for Everyday

There are so many good holiday card holder ideas that I can’t resist making another. And I have a new way

to display holiday cards that I think you are going to love. I love using holiday cards as a way to decorate, and I’ve used ribbon, clothespins, and more to display them. But now I’ve finally come up with a way that displays my holiday cards, that I could actually use year-round to display birthday cards, artwork and other treasures from school. It’s a ceiling medallion.

Step 1: Materials You Will Need.

To make this holiday card holder, I used posterboard, upholstery stapler, paint, and a ceiling medallion from Fypon. I chose a polyurethane medallion because it takes paint beautifully and it’s resistant to weathering. So I have the added option of displaying it as a wreath on our porch.

Step 2: Add a Backing to the Medallion

Attach the posterboard to the back of the medallion with the stapler, so it’s snug and there’s room to slip a card between the medallion and the posterboard.

Step 3: Decorate the Medallion in Whatever Style You Like.

Decorating this holiday card holder is a fun project to do with kids, but for mine, I chose to spend some mommy-meditative time painting alone.

Step 4: Slip the Cards in the Holiday Card Holder

Enjoy the holidays wishes from friends and family.
