Wood Frame & Chicken Wire Christmas Card Holder


I've had a vintage chunky wood frame stored away just waiting to be put to good use and a few months ago it hit me - it would make a perfect Christmas card holder! This project has been on my list for months, and I'm so glad I finally got it done this past weekend. All I needed was some chicken wire, staples and paperclips. Once I gathered my supplies, it only took about 30 minutes to do - made me wonder why I put it off for so long!

It was such a simple project that I didn't take step-by-step photos. Here's how I did it in case you want to make one of your own for all those Christmas cards that are coming in the mail (I received five on Saturday alone, ha!):

  • Turn your frame to the backside and cut a piece of chicken wire that fits inside the edges
  • Use a staple gun to secure it to the edges of the frame (be sure to pull the chicken wire taut, but not too tight so that it bends it out of shape)
  • Flip it back over and hang on the wall. 
Here's mine empty (pre-Christmas cards):


And here it is all filled up!



It brings such a smile to my face every time I walk past all those photos. I love receiving Christmas cards from friends and family - it's so fun to see how things change from year to year... and this year's cards included a lot more babies!

So, how do you display your Christmas cards? I've done everything from stick them to the back of the front door to hanging them on a metal tree in the past. I'm excited to have this frame though - I'm sure I'll use it again next Christmas (and for other things during the year!).
