Make a snowy Christmas card wreath from garland is not only pretty to look at, it’s a neat way to appreciate both new or older Christmas cards in a unique way!

How I did it

The wreath started as a store bought plain garland. Looping it together to create a wreath shape, freshly cut greens were simply stuck into place. No glue in sight.

Cards were attached via a hole puncher and twine.

Twigs were added for a little rustic bling, finishing off with a light mist of snow spray, going right onto the cards as well.

  1. Love the dusting of snow. I’ve made placemats with the grandkids buy grouping old cards by theme or by cutting out the snowmen santas, etc. The kids put the cards they pick on a piece of clear contact paper and an adult helps them put another piece on top. These are so colorful and kids always know which one is theirs.

  2. Really great idea — especially for those cards that are especially pretty. I save my old Xmas cards to make gift tags. Just cut out tags with a pretty punch, add a hole and twine and you have a tag. I try to do a bunch ahead so they are ready for anyone who needs to wrap a gift.
