How to Make Your Own Christmas Card Wreath

image

This is usually the time of year I get excited to see what’s in the mail.

Bills. Bills. Junk. Store Ad. Bills. Christmas card! Yay!

I’ve tried different ways to display the beautiful Christmas cards and photos that we received from family and friends, but the one I’m sharing with you has stuck around the longest.

It is very easy and very inexpensive to make, and it requires no craft skill whatsoever.

Start with a sturdy cardboard and draw a circle of the size you want for your wreath. You can freehand it or use a large round platter to outline. It really doesn’t have to be a perfect circle because it will all be covered by the cards. You can also use foam board, which is a little sturdier than the cardboard.

Punch a couple of holes at the top, and tie a ribbon through them.

Arrange the Christmas cards on the circle. When you have it just the way you want it, simply use a small piece of tape behind each card to attach to the circle. You can use these year after year, so don’t toss them out when you take down all your decorations.

And voila! Your Christmas card wreath! Easy, right?

    1. Seriously? You still have last year’s cards? I took our cards down from 2013, but have kept them in a box in the living room. The kids like looking at them sometimes. 🙂

  1. I love this! I have a wire card hanger with glitter all over it. I am reluctant to take it out because I think the toddler might get a chair and try to take it off the wall, and get glitter all over the ground. This is much lighter and so cute.

    1. I like the look of glitter, but I’ve been holding off on any glittery crafts until the youngest one is a bit older … for the same reason you said. 🙂

  2. Easy and wonderful (aka right up my alley)! I originally thought I was going to paint a ton of clothespins green and put them around a wire hanger. This saved me a few hours and undue stress haha. Thanks so much!

  3. That’s a great idea! Right now I use paper clips to hold our cards onto ribbons but I might try this next year, since it’s so pretty.
