Don't you just love Christmas cards? Most people love to display them during the holiday and then keep them in a storage box for future viewing. We have enjoyed making various crafts from these old Christmas cards and perhaps your family will love making these Christmas card crafts too.

Christmas Card Wreath

Step #1 - You will need a large piece of cardboard. Draw a circle the size you wish the wreath to be. Now cut out the circle and draw another circle in the middle so that you leave at least 6" all around the outside of the circle.

Step #2 - You will need all those old Christmas cards you have stashed away in the attic, or under your bed or perhaps in the basement.

Step #3 - Kids love to go through these old Christmas cards picking out their favorites to use in this craft.

Step #4 - Line up the cards on the wreath so they encircle the wreath side by side. You can overlap the cards for a great affect.

Step #5 - Now glue the card backs to the wreath where you want them until the entire wreath is covered with Christmas cards.

Step #6 - Attach a holiday bow and you have a fantastic wreath for your home.

Candle Holder

Supplies you will need:

Old Christmas Cards

Small glass jars from jams or baby food

Glue

Paint Brush

Rubber band

Salt

What to do:

Step #1 - Cut out a favorite Christmas scene from one of the cards. The size needs to fit on the side of the jar.

Step #2 - glue the back of the picture and place it on the side of the jar

Step #3 - Use the rubber band to hold the picture in place until the glue dries

Step #4 - After the glue dries, remove the rubber band

Step #5 - Use the paintbrush to cover the outside of the jar with glue.

Step #6 - sprinkle the salt over all of the glue to make the jar glisten.

Step #7 - Let the glue dry.

Step #8 - Place a piece of curling ribbon around the rim of the jar and place a candle in the jar

Bookmarks

To make bookmarks from old Christmas Cards you will need to have the following supplies:

Old Christmas Cards
Cardboard or poster-board
Paint, Markers or Crayons
Glue
Clear Contact Paper

What to do:

Step #1 - Cut a strip from the cardboard or plasterboard (which ever you are using), about 8" X 2" in size.

Step #2 - Cut a picture from one of the Christmas cards.

Step #3 - Glue the picture that you cut out to the top of the strip.

Step #4 - Wait for the glue to dry

Step #5 - Write a holiday greeting or the name of the person you are giving it to.

Step #6 - Cover the new bookmark with clear contact paper or have it laminated.
