Every year I save the Christmas cards we receive from friends and family. Every year I say that someday I'm going to do something with them...this year I finally followed through with that task.
I decided to use some of my favorites to make a little holiday wreath. I have not done this before, but it seemed like it might be a fun (and frugal) Christmas craft.
I cut a large ring out of a cardboard box (making two tiny holes toward the "top" so that I could fashion a hanger with fishing line). I then picked my favorite old Christmas cards and cut circles from the images on them. For the circles, I used a couple plastic lids (different sizes) to trace around. Then I cut out the circles and glued them to the cardboard circle. Super simple, but I think the end result was cute.

|When Little Guy saw the glue...he felt he needed to do something crafty too. I cut out pictures for him and he glued them to his paper. What a sweetheart!|
