Now that it's officially December, the holiday cards and family photos are likely to start shooting into your mail slot like that scene straight out of Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone. If you like to display all the good tidings you get from your friends and family but don't know how to do it in a stylish, uncluttered way, keep on reading. Rather than sticking them on the fridge or lining them up on a table, there are plenty of creative ways to string them up and put them on display. Take a peek!

If you have a house with a staircase, a sweet way to display your holiday cards is to weave them into a spruce garland that's wrapped around the banister like Martha Stewart. If you don't have a staircase, you can also try doing this over a window frame in your favorite room.

Another way to incorporate your favorite holiday cards into a garland is to wrap it around a doorframe, like in this shot via Better Homes & Gardens. Its a beautiful way to enhance your holiday greenery and give your cards pride of place.

We may not all decorate to the nines with trees and garlands and beyond, but we all have windows, don't we? This shot from Country Living proves that simple twine strung across a window (tied to a picture hanger) can go from mundane to totally festive with some clothespins, cards and even an ornament or two.

Another too-cute idea from Country Living: if you have a decorative ladder in your home, try tying some string or ribbon to the top of one side, and clipping a cascade of letters down it.

Sleek and modern not your thing? If you'll take any excuse to create Christmas tree-shaped displays all over your house this time of year, may we suggest the twine-zig-zag-tree idea seen here from Design Improvised?

For those that like a more playful rather than traditional touch when it comes to their holiday displays, consider making a colorful tassel garland like Brit + Co. did here. You can choose whatever colors and patterns you want, and then stick your holiday cards between every fourth or so tassel.

If you like modern holiday decor, this easy tree cutout from Ambrosia Creative could be just the ticket to display your holiday cards. It's simple and minimal, but dressed up with paper snowflakes and colorful cards and pictures, it's super festive.

Lastly, don't overlook your flagship holiday decor: the Christmas tree. Simply clip those greetings straight to the boughs of your tree or along ribbons/garland, as seen here from a lust-worthy display via Country Living.
