DIY Christmas Cards – Ideas to Inspire You! Plus Fun Ways to Display Your Cards!

If you love to get crafty & do something different from the standard Christmas cards or photo cards, we’ve put together a list of DIY Christmas Cards, with ideas to get you thinking of something out of the norm that your family & friends will love to receive in the mail. It can be something as using washi tape, too, so you don’t have to be very skilled with paper crafts.

We’ve also included some fun ways to display your Christmas cards as well.

DIY Christmas Cards:

Special Snowflake Christmas Cards from Confessions of an Over Worked Mom

This one is nice for a general holiday card as it can say Merry Christmas, Happy New Year etc. Plus it would be perfect for all ages as well. It is a fun one to make ahead of time for any last minute cards you want to give out too.
