Lucky for me, this year I was able to design my custom Christmas cards with Pear Tree Greetings. There were SO many choices for holiday photo cards I couldn’t decide. Their personalization process made it so easy though to save the photos I wanted to use so that I could come back to them later. I FINALLY decided on the Golden Greeting Trifold Christmas Cards. I love them because they are made from 100% recycled matte card stock.

Then, I started to think about all the lovely cards that my friends and family will be sending me. I have never had a nice photo display so I decided to make one. Here is how I made my DIY Christmas Card Display.

Materials:

  • Old Frame (check thrift stores!)
  • Paint, Paint Brush, Painter’s Tape (optional)
  • Poultry Netting
  • Staple Gun and Staples
  • Wire Cutter
  • Pliers
  • Ornaments and Ribbon (optional)
  • Clothespins

Can you believe I found this painting for free in the trash? Yep… I took it and was REALLY excited about it.

Before-Old Painting

Because I am upcycling an existing painting, I had a couple extra steps.  You can see here, I had to disassemble the painting and remove some nails.

I also decided to paint the frame white. So, I taped off the burlap trim and primed and painted the frame.

Next, I measured and cut the poultry netting to fit inside the frame. Be sure to staple down all four sides.

Here is what it looks like with the netting. You can leave it like this and use it as an organization board in an office or craft room as well.

But, since I’m using this for Christmas cards, I added some ornaments and ribbon.

  1. The chicken wire is a great idea. I have a bunch of those mini clothes pins but have never had any inspiration to use them. I would add a decorative backing to hide the hanging wire, OR, take the hanging wire off and use a long ribbon attached to the top corners. Hmmmmmm, this post has me thinking… (Thanks!)

  2. I love this because it can be adapted for use all year long. Different holidays, a place to hang kitchen utensils, jewelry, craft items, oh my gosh, the list goes on! Great project!
