Recycled Christmas Card Ornaments

Posted on December 17, 2023

If you are like me, you just hate not saving those pretty Christmas cards that you receive each year. So let’s recycle those beautiful old cards into something new and keep on enjoying them.

Recycled Old Christmas Cards into Ornaments

Here is a before photo of the cards that I punched holes all around the edges.

Next you just need a small crochet hook to work into the holes. I use a small hole punch and a C (2.75 mm) crochet hook in my projects. I have a picture tutorial and full details can be found here on how to make these recycled Christmas card ornaments.

Here is one of my favorite cards, that I cut in half and glued the pieces back to back. See photo below of each side of this Christmas ornament.

Gluing pieces back to back also works well if you need to cover up writing or printed messages. I just put two card pieces back to back that way both sides have pretty images.

Okay here is one more round ornament that I crocheted.

Merry Christmas everyone!
