Hey friends!

I know, you are probably all decorated and ready for the holidays but I just had to share this latest thrifty idea with you.
The great thing about it, is you don’t even have to limit this to the holidays.
This is a wonderful idea for any time of the year or even for gift giving.

Using Christmas and holiday cards for decor makes for a really simple and inexpensive way to add some pretty holiday decor to your home or anywhere.

I picked up these 3 holiday card sets at Michael’s and of course they were on sale.

They were all so pretty and I immediately thought they would look so lovely framed.
The white car and nativity have sparkles and/or gold shimmers which just make them look gorgeous.
Too bad it’s hard to pick up on that in the photos.

I love how this simplistic card looks in this ornate and fancy gold frame.
Looks so pretty on my window sill above the sink.

Just a fun little touch.

It also looks great with Sassy Santa in my foyer….

Isn’t that a neat idea? There are just so many pretty cards out there that would make lovely framed “art”.
I shared a post last year on how to repurpose old Christmas cards with a bunch of other ideas besides this.
Take a look at that post, here.

Lots of ways you can use them.

I just love this one.
Goes so sweetly with the white car on my Christmas tray.

I SO wish you could see all the sparkles in the snow on the car! It makes this card/art look so magical.

And finally, this one, which I just adore….

I actually pulled out an old bronze colored frame and sprayed it gold with this paint.
I think with the blue colors and gold frame, it looks just perfect in my dining room.

This has little gold shimmers that you can’t see either. Darn!
They look so pretty, wish the camera didn’t hide them.

UPDATE!! I uploaded a couple videos to Instagram stories so you can hopefully see how pretty they are. :)

So that’s it.
Just a simple little addition to my holiday decor with Christmas card decor.
Pretty easy and I can see this being a great way to add some decor around other holidays too, like Easter, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, etc.
I can even see doing this for any kind of themed party or event you may have.
You could find themed cards, frame them and sit them in and around your table, food etc.
How fun!

PIN it to save it!

  1. These are great. I especially like the idea of the nativity scene card. Sometimes you just don’t have the room to set up a full tabletop nativity scene so I think this is the perfect solution! Still expresses the sentiment of the reason for the season. I’ve also seen those little clipboard frames that would work great with recycled christmas cards as well. Happy holidays!

    1. Oh yes, Carolyn, you are so right about that! It really is a great way to include it. :) And yes, love those clipboard frames! Happy Holidays to you! xoxo

  2. I remember my mother sent me a Christmas card many, many years ago. I loved it so much, that I put it in a frame.
    It means even more to me now, as she passed away earlier this year.
    I Left the glass out of the frame so that you could see the sparkles in the snow on my card.
    Merry Christmas. And thank you for sharing with us all year.

    1. I’m so sorry for your loss. I understand how you feel as I lost my mom 5 years ago. And yes, absolutely, so very special. What a great idea to leave the glass off, might have to do that to mine! :) Merry Christmas to you Tracey! xoxo

  3. Sometimes I find some of the most beautiful vintage looking cards at thrift stores and Value Village or Sally Ann stores…so beautiful and don’t cost much either. This is very good way to re-use and recycle cards.
    LOVE THESE CARDS!!!

  4. I adore this idea! I actually framed a beautiful nativity card a while back to display. I don’t keep all cards that are sent to me, but sometimes the artwork on the card just speaks to me. Another idea is to use gift bags for art, I have seen some lovely ones (even at Dollar stores) that would be beautiful framed, also a way to get larger art. I also like to display holiday pictures of my kids when they were little during the appropriate season.

    1. Hi Vicki! Love the idea of using “not intended art”, for art! ;) The dollar store gift bags are a great idea too! (and cheap, even better!) That’s also a great idea about the holiday photos out during the holidays, etc. I’ll have to do that next year! xoxo
