Do you ever wonder what to do with the cards you receive during the holiday season? I love sending and receiving cards, and for the past several years, we’ve been adding a personal touch by opting for photo greeting cards. This seems to be a popular greeting card trend, and I’ll often find that my refrigerator begins to look cluttered with the sheer number of holiday greeting cards we receive each year.
Instead of hanging those greeting cards on a wall or the refrigerator, why not turn them into a holiday accent/decor piece? Many people hang a wreath in their home and a unique, festive way to “dress up” the wreath is to use it as a display for your photo greeting cards.
This Photo Greeting Card Wreath Decoration is simple and affordable and looks awesome when it’s complete. The only thing I would suggest is to mind the elements when you go to display it.
Photo Greeting Card Wreath Decoration
Several Photo Greeting Cards (approximately 15)
1 18″ wreath wire frame with hook or a holiday evergreen wreath
2-3 rolls of ribbon (I opted for a sparkly red)
Glue gun (you can also use green floral wire)
Order your photo greeting cards on Walmart.com to add your personal touch to the wreath. Most are available to pick up on the same day and some can be picked up within the hour.
Step 2: Create your bow
Begin with one loop and place a small amount of glue. Twist and make another loop, gluing in between. Be sure to loop in a circular fashion. when you get to the final loop, glue it in place in the center of the bow. Once the glue is set, you can move the loops and shape the bow.
Step 3: Attach the bow to the wreath with glue or floral wire
Step 4: Cut 40″ of ribbon and fold into an upside down “V.” Secure underneath the bow so that this is not visible with glue or flora wire. Trim the edges into an upside down “V.”
Step 5: Begin at the top center of the wreath and use glue to secure one photo greeting card in place. Be to cover any of the ribbon that may be visible. Continue to arrange the greeting cards around the wreath in a clockwise manner, ensuring that the cards overlap.
The entire craft took about an hour and the most time-consuming part is arranging and adhering the cards. We hung our wreath over the fireplace as our very first holiday decorating venture of the season.
