Recycled Christmas Cards

December 24, 2018 No comments yet


Merry Christmas! I have been recycling old Christmas cards into ornaments for years. I just love taking the beautiful old cards and repurposing them.

It is very easy and children especially can enjoy recycling the cards and crocheting around the edges. Here is the instructional tutorial on how I recycle the cards into these ornaments.

Also be advised that if you don’t want to crochet around the card edges, you can always use a craft needle and yarn to whip stitch around the edges for decorating.

Here are some of my creations for 2018.[…]

Merry Christmas the Recycled Way

I was thinking about my recycled craft projects and as I was recycling some old Christmas cards, I thought of a great Christmas greeting. Merry Christmas the recycled way! It sums up what I think about much of the time and a fun message this time of the year.

Here are more Christmas ornaments that I made by recycling old Christmas cards and crocheting an edging around them. For more details check out the recycled Christmas card tutorial.[…]

Recycling Christmas Cards into Ornaments

November 18, 2012 2 comments


I like to save old Christmas cards to recycle them into new and useful items. In my recycled gift tag post, I cut them to create cute little gift tags that can be used on packages. This year I wanted to use the old cards to create some Christmas ornaments that I could send along to the troops overseas. I know they may not have a tree but they could hang these little ornaments on a knob in their vehicle or hang it in their living area. Maybe the small decoration would remind them of Christmas and bring them a little joy for the holidays.

Materials needed:
Old Christmas cards
Small hole punch
Scissors
Glue
Small crochet hook C (2.75 mm) works well with the small holes
Scraps of yarn (aran, ww, or even sport yarn will work)

Cut two cards to match so that you have front and backs the same size. […]
