Simple Christmas card banners


Photo from bhg.com
Yesterday I hung up the simple Christmas card banners that my granddaughter and I made last year.  I blogged about them on my Christmas blog at the time, but apparently not here.  Here's the link to that post: Simple Christmas Card Banner.  As I noted in that post, we made the individual "pennants" together and I sewed them to ribbon a few days later to create the banners.

Here is the link to this project on my Crafting for Christmas Pinterest board: Christmas Card Banner.  If you click the "website" link at the top, you'll be taken to bhg.com, where you can access the specific directions.


We did adapt the idea very freely, as I explain in the post on my Christmas blog, substituting card stock for fabric.  I especially liked that this project used not only the fronts of cards but some of the inside verses as well.  We had some older cards to use and some of them had lovely verses indeed.

Are you interested in a simple project that elementary aged kids will enjoy?  Or do you just enjoy playing with old Christmas cards and scissors as I do?  In either case, you may want to check this out!

  1. What a great idea Mrs T. I always hate to toss the pretty Christmas cards. Maybe Kendall and I can make some of these!

  4. Yes, it's a fake pre-lighted (white lights) tree that we bought at an after-Christmas clearance a couple of years ago. I love the scent of a real tree, but the convenience of pre-lighted is so nice!

    It would have been fun for you all to go tree-cutting together. Oh well ... maybe next year!
