Last Christmas season, I got to noticing I had a lot of Christmas cards left over from the prior year (unused ones I had bought and didn't send, and ones that I had received).
I got to looking at all of the lovely designs and artwork, and decided: you know what? I'll decorate my house with these! I put a lot of them on top of the upper shelves in the kitchen (up high so that you notice them as you walk into the kitchen). Others got put out as table top displays or shelf displays. It went over pretty well, the kids loved them, and family coming by to visit certainly took notice of them!
Of course, in addition to the ones I used for decorations, I bought more cards last season (to send out Christmas cards for that year) and I got more cards in the mail from friends/relatives...so this year I'm considering expanding the decorating! Maybe some picture collage frames, with Christmas cards on the wall! And whatever other ideas I can come up with.
I didn't realize how much fun Christmas cards can be! It's like collecting baseball cards or trading cards, except much more festive!
Anyone else here decorate with Christmas cards?
