I’m always getting asked what can we make out of our old Christmas cards. An amazing follower of ours sent me in an idea and I knew I had to give it a try. You can create an amazing decorative tree using recycled Christmas cards.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. A variety of Christmas cards ( you will want at least 40 to 49 but it depends on the size of your cards)
2. Hot glue
4. A piece of thick styrofoam
5. Small dowel
6. Hole puncher
7. Glitter foam paper ( optional)
This tree is very easy to create and you can make your own pattern or print my pattern down below. This tree will be 49 pieces and the pieces will be in groups of 7. I created my own pattern and I made the largest piece according to my largest card which is 7 inches tall.
You will trace each pattern 7 times giving you 7 pieces. This will give you 7 different size pieces and you will want 7 pieces of each size.
Once you have all 49 pieces cut out you will punch a hole in the center of the rounded end.
