Christmas Card Garland

Pull out your old cards, or save your Christmas cards for next year and make this easy Christmas Card Garland! This is a great craft for preschoolers, they may need help with the cutting but they'll love stringing the colorful christmas pictures and then decorating the house or tree with their creation!

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Here's what you'll need

• Old Christmas cards
• Hole punch
• Twine or yarn
• Scissors

Here's how you make it...

1. From your old Christmas cards cut out pictures and words. Make sure you leave enough space on the either end of the pictures to make 2 hole punches.

2. Punch 2 holes in each picture, one on either side. Then string your pictures onto your twine or yarn. The pictures don't slide around a lot on the twine, but if your having problems with this try putting a small piece of scotch tape on the back to keep them in place.

Another, yet more expensive, option is to use a cute christmas pattern ribbon, or balloon ribbon which is a little less expensive. Instead of stringing your pictures could also tie your twine or yarn onto each hole. However, this is much more time consuming and can only be done by children 5 and up.
