I am going to try this, and put it on the table for cards to be displayed on.
You take a tomato cage, clean it and turn the prongs into a point. The prongs will be at the top. You take some wrapping paper, preferably green and put it around the top and tape it with duct tape.
Then you cut a circle on the bottom of green paper and put that at the base. I am not sure how they attached this, probably with duct tape or regular tape, perhaps. You now have a Christmas card holder for your cards, and you attach them to the "tree" with binder clips. I cannot wait to do this for the table.
Most years, I just hang a string and put them on it, or put them on the cabinets and refrigerator with magnets.
I also may decorate with more things such as the silver garnish you buy at the Dollar Store, and a few other things. This tree was so cute, I had to share it with you on Thriftyfun.

Don't have a holiday card holder? I have an idea to get those Christmas cards up for friends and family to see. Take a Christmas towel, and hang it on the wall with 2 thumb tacks.

Does anyone know how to make a nice, budget-friendly Christmas/holiday card holder with things from around the house? I want one that can hold a decent amount of cards and not easily fall apart or have the cards fall down? I have three boys.

Use a can opener to remove both the top and the bottom of a juice can; or remove the bottom of a potato-chip can. Use Christmas colored yarns to wrap the can, top to bottom, dropping the yarn in the top of the can, out the bottom, around the outside to drop into the top again until you can no longer see the can. The you just open the cards (like a book) and put one of the pieces of yarn in it, (holding it at the fold.
I hope that makes sense!
Here's a greeting card holder that your boys can make.
Here is a pic for what Jilson kindly posted. I think I will make one too!
You could staple the back of cards to a long ribbon and tie top ribbon to something strong and let cards hang down against the wall or attach both ends of ribbon to door frame and have cards hang down.
I found a perfect shape and size basket on sale almost three decades ago and spray painted it with rustoleum high gloss red. Can move it from table to table and some years set in on the floor in strategic corners.
Does anyone know of a cute thing to make to display cards?

I used to hang evergreen garlands around the living room to the kitchen door and then use mini-clothespins to clip the cards to the garland. It looked very festive.
