Ask Design Mom Week — Holiday Card Display

Question:
I have been looking online everywhere. Do you know the metal alligator clip stands with multiple clips that form a tree like shape when cards are hung on it? I remember seeing them in a catalog from last season but was too late to purchase and am hoping to get a jump on it this year. Thanks for any shopping help! — Amy



Answer:
Dear Readers, do you know exactly what Amy is looking for? Do you know a source? Please share. In the meantime, Amy, take a look at this aluminum multi-clip hanger from Muji. They offer 3 different versions and they’re made to hang accessories in your closet. But wouldn’t they work well for holiday cards?

  1. I have the IKEA squid (in blue) & never thought to use him for cards! He's entirely ineffectual for what I thought his purpose was – to hang delicates – as I've no place to hang that will accommodate drips. Tx for the idea!

  2. Here is a DIY that I am making this year from an idea at Lowe's…..just scroll down until you find it. It is a tomato cage turned upside down and I think will be darling.

  3. Umbra makes one – we just used it (once) for our wedding. It stands about 5' tall and has about 40 alligator clips. Email me for a photo. If Amy wants it, I can ship it to her – think it cost me about $50 + shipping.

  4. I just created a magnetic bulletin board with holiday card displays in mind…but you could use the board all year. The first one I posted is covered in burlap, but painted ones are in the works too. They're really cute…not sure my poor photography skills do them justice! They're at http://www.oMyGoodness.etsy.com.

  5. Here is two more that are more traditional
