Recycling Old Christmas Cards

Posted on December 17, 2014

Here are a few Christmas ornaments I made from old recycled Christmas cards. I save Christmas cards and those sample cards you get in the mail. I cut out to shapes and glue them together. You can either make them bigger for decorating on a tree or package. You can also make smaller ones that can be used as gift tags.

For more details on the process you can read my original craft post on Recycling Christmas Cards into Ornaments.

Here is one before picture shown below with the holes punched around the card edges. As you can see you just hole punch around the edges evenly. Then with a small hook, single crochet around the edges and add a hanging loop.

Here is one larger square-cornered ornament I made for our Christmas tree.

So mix and match the cards and shapes to create some fun and unique Christmas ornaments this holiday season. Merry Christmas!

    I love this idea, we never know what to do with cards after Christmas so I end up with a huge pile of them to put away with the decorations!
