DIY Christmas Tree Card Holder

Christmas cards are stories from loved ones and my favorite part of the season! How do you display the cards you receive? I’ve had extra time this year to put together this affordable birch tree card holder and wanted to share it with you.

First you need to cut the branches to the correct sizes. I found my branches at a local store that happened to be closing 🙁 …. but you should be able to find similar branches at any local craft store. These branches from Target would work, and then cut them to the sizes above.

  • Lay out the branches with the largest one on the bottom and the smallest on the top.
  • Next you will add the twine. Start by tying a knot on the bottom left side and wrap it around the branch twice. Then move up to the next branch and wrap it around the branch twice, continue this on each branch. When you get to the top, make a large triangle and tie a not leaving a loop at the top for hanging. I added the star through the whole on the loop. You could also glue it on with a glue gun.
  • Continue the twine back down the branches wrapping around each branch twice until you get to the bottom branch. Tie a knot on the bottom branch.
  • Add a strand of twine along each branch going from the left to right to hang the cards.
  • Clip clothes pins and add cards!

Add flair

I cut up a large pom garland and hot glued the “poms” randomly to the twine. Then I used the clothes pins (found these in the Target dollar spot!) and hung the Christmas cards. I love having a fun and festive way to hang all the cute Christmas cards we receive!
