12 Days of DIY Christmas ~ Day 7 ~ Playing Cards Garland

I love this idea and how awesome is this that most people have a deck or two that are missing cards and no longer get play time. This was first seen at Anthropologie and it is so easy to make that I thought I should share this with all of you. Great garland for trees, fireplaces and anywhere you want to hang this.


~Playing Cards (2 decks in two different colors)

~Sewing Machine

~Scissors (Large Circle punch, in which case you wouldn’t need the pen or glass)


~Glass (or circle stencil)

1. Trace your circle onto your card.

2. Cut each circle out of the playing cards. It would be much easier if you had a large circle punch.

3. Sew the cards together using a straight stitch, until all cards are used.

4. Hang it up (I can’t to use this on my tree).

    Not only do I love this idea, but the fact that this re-purposes something for cheap or free AND saves you beaucoup bucks from a hip but expensive store like Anthropoligie makes it totally rock.
