Running out of mantel space for all your cards? Here are some alternative ways to display them
Hang them by the fire
Keep the mantel free of cards so you can decorate it with beautiful baubles. Instead, fix up a piece of string from end to end and use festive-looking pegs to attach your cards.
Create beautiful banisters
Make your banisters look beautiful by hanging mesh ribbons from them and fixing on your Christmas cards. For extra interest tie bows at regular intervals down the banister and attach clusters of mini-baubles, finish off with a twinkly star.
Dress your cards with beads
Put your old costume jewellery to good use. Hang a string of beads from a hook on the door and attach an ornate flower to the top. Fasten the cards to the beads using double-sided sticky tape.
Adorn your bed
Make use of every inch of space by attaching cards to the foot of the bed. Use mesh ribbon hung from each end and give the cards a finishing touch with shimmering bells and a decorative heart.
