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.[…]

Recycled Christmas Card Ornaments

Here are recycled Christmas cards I crafted into ornaments. These are promotional cards mailed out to advertise Christmas cards that can be ordered. I glued the cards back to back to hide the advertising on the reverse sides of each card. The cards are so pretty and different companies mail out several sets to us each year.

By cutting out shapes from the cards and using a big craft needle and yarn, these make beautiful Christmas ornaments. This is a recycled craft that children especially can enjoy as you just need to stitch around the holes and tie a long strand of yarn at the top for a hanger.

Here is another style of trim I made by crocheting around the edges of the card using a small C crochet hook. I did 2 single crochet stitches in each hole and just worked my way around the ornament. The small crochet hook works best as it fits through the punched holes.

Here is my picture tutorial on how to recycle old Christmas cards into ornaments. Just follow my step by step process […]
