DYI CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS USING OLD CHRISTMAS CARDS!

 
      There's this Greek blog that I'm following called
http://www.jenny.gr/  that is absolutely fabulous! It has articles about beauty, style and fashion, health, celebrities and lifestyle, home decorating, recipes, etc. (You should check it out!) It is there that I came across these wonderful ideas of reusing old Christmas cards and I thought I should share them with you!
 
      I'm sure you have plenty of them from previous years that you just can't throw away and can't put them ALL on display either. So why not do something creative with the cards this year! (and the next...)
 
You could make a festive banner out of them!
 

The Christmas cards could make beautiful holiday placemats! (Lamination is of course necessary!)

 
Cut them in different shapes and create fancy 3D ornaments for the Christmas tree.

 
Create a unique wreath.
 
Cut them into small gift tags! That is always handy!

 
If you're emotionally attached to some of the cards and don't want to destroy them, why not make a beautiful album of them!  
 

If you have any DIY ideas about Christmas decorating, please do share!

  2. I think these are all great ideas for adults. When my kids were little I used to let them cut them up and make a collage. It was always a fun and pretty art project for them, full of pictures, words, even some signatures.

  3. Oh, these ideas are all wonderful, especially the ornaments! My Mum always got us kids cutting up old cards to make gift tags, and I've done that religiously every year since! I hate to waste them!!

    1. I hate to waste them, too. Plus I get emotionally attached to some but had never thought of using them like that. Lack of imagination/creativity?!!! I don't know!
