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)
~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).
