Easy Holiday Card Display with Cork Board

It’s the season for holiday happy mail! Getting Christmas cards in the mail is one of my favorite parts of the season, and I’m always looking for a unique way to show off all the photo cards of family and friends. Sometimes, nothing works better than a traditional cork board and push pins. But this isn’t your average cork board thanks to the addition of some pretty script letters that I had custom made by CraftCuts to say “Holiday Happy Mail”, along with some mini wood holly leaves and berries to make it extra festive.

I was excited to partner with CraftCuts for this post and try their unique products for the first time because I have never seen so many ways to custom cut wood, metal, and other materials. Pretty much dream up what you want, and CraftCuts will cut it for you! I love that CraftCuts can cut these custom script words in addition to single letters and shapes. You can choose from over 18 different fonts, have them cut words anywhere from 1 inch to 18 inches tall, and from 1/8 inch to 3/8 inch thick. You can even have them paint the words for you! Check out all the customization options.

How to Make Holiday Card Holder

Step 1: Paint wood letters

Paint wood letters and holly shapes with acrylic craft paint. I chose the traditional red and green. Let dry.

Step 2: Paint cork board

Paint the cork board with white craft paint. You can always leave it natural too if you like! I used a 16″ by 36″ inch cork panel from the craft store, but any cork board will do. This is a great way to repurpose one you already have, or you can find them for just a couple dollars at the thrift store!

Step 3: Glue wood details to cork board

Add the painted wood letters and holly to the cork board with hot glue.

Step 4: Add pom-pom trim

Add pom-pom trim around the outside of the cork board with a bead of hot glue, working with a small section at a time.
