Instructions for Christmas cards display garland
Measure the area you plan to hang your Christmas cards garland, making sure to allow for the curve. I hang mine in a triple window, so I need at least 15 feet for making two swags in the windows and a couple feet hanging down at either side. My display takes 3 hooks. I use a suction cup hook to swag the center on the center of the window.
Cut the same length of ribbon and butcher’s twine plus a couple extra feet. Wrap the garland with the ribbon and twine. Or, you may prefer to wrap the garland with Christmas lights.
Pin your Christmas cards up as they arrive! I enjoy receiving and sending cards every year. It’s fun to hear what has been going on and seeing the family photos. I save many of the cards to cut up to make paper ball ornaments.
