I have been doing my best to decorate for the holidays, but it’s really hard to do in a small condo. I no longer have a fireplace mantle and I can’t really do too much to the walls, so I am making do with what I have.

There are many ways to display Christmas cards, so I had to figure something out. Flameless and mantelless, which was where I used to put the cards and sip hot cocoa in my slippers, it was time to get creative with our Christmas cards display.

Let’s make this holiday card holder

To make this DIY Christmas card holder, measure out your burlap to the desired length, then fold it over and double it. Mine was about 3 feet and holds 13 cards. I would suggest 4 feet in length to hold 16-20 cards, which would mean you’ll need 8 feet of burlap.

Line up the two ends and trim evenly. Fold the two ends back towards each other to form a triangle. Glue with hot glue gun and set. This will be the BACK of your holiday cardholder, which goes against the wall.

Putting together the hanging Christmas card holder

Place your roll of toilet paper inside the burlap, at the top of the holder, on the opposite side of the triangle. Even the burlap all the way from the triangle up to the top where the toilet paper roll will sit and glue it to the inside. Make sure it’s nice and tight and completely even all the way down.

Glue on your clothespins about 3 – 4 inches apart, going all the way down the length of the burlap from top to bottom. Make sure that the part that will pinch and hold the cards is facing out. Put a small amount of glue onto the backside of the clothespin, be sure not to put any on the metal hinge.

Add ribbon to the top of your wall Christmas card holder

Thread your red holiday ribbon through the toilet paper roll at the top of the homemade cardholder and tie or glue it together to make a hanger. To make it a little more festive, you can add a bow with hot glue onto the outside of the wall hanger to cover the toilet paper roll. Here’s mine…
