A bulletin board gives you a blank slate to completely create your own Christmas art piece. Unless you want the brown cork to show, consider starting the project with a paper background. You can use holiday scrapbook paper or wrapping paper for a colorful base. After you've finished pinning the base, arrange your Christmas cards and attach them to the board. You can personalize this look by adding your child's Christmas artwork and any other holiday papers you may have.
Most importantly, have fun with your Christmas card displays and let them be a reflection of you and your own style. When you are finished, not only will you have a great way to display all of the Christmas cards you’ve received, but you’ll have a great conversation piece for your next holiday party!
