Recycled Christmas Decor

If you ever wonder what to do with your old Christmas Cards, make this simple project. What you need for this project is old Christmas cards, glue,  scissors,  ribbons, and string.  Just  cut out the cards into circle then fold it in half.  after you fold all the circle in halves, glue two sides together until you form a desired  round shape.
My daughter made these in school in her  special program  class.  I will be making some of these with her here at home during the  holidays.

Perfect way to recycle. Now, can you recycle the shadows too? :)

A very clever idea for keeping Christmas cards. The decorations look so pretty with the ribboned bows.

Such a lovely idea! I have been saving Christmas cards for a couple of years now and I am planning on framing my favorites to add to next years Christmas decor :)

These are pretty neat! I don't get a lot of Christmas cards though but I think I can recycle other cardboards. Thanks for the idea.

Those are lovely and it is nice that they are recycled. It is fun for kids or for the family to do. I used to recycle Christmas Cards too or hang them as part of the decor especially those ones that are really pretty.

This is a great use of cards. Instead of keeping them in a box or throwing them out, you will be able to see and enjoy them for years.

This is a great idea because instead of keeping the cards in a drawer of throwing them out you will be reusing them for years.

What a creative idea. My little one loves making crafts, I'm sure he would love to do these.
