The holidays are quickly approaching, and my bank account is emptying just as fast. Between buying gifts, holiday ensembles, and ingredients for cookies, I certainly can’t afford to spend extra bucks on holiday decorations. I can, however, use a little imagination to craft free and recycled decor. Now, I swear I am not a hoarder, but I happen to have saved old Christmas cards. They’re just always so pretty and festive that I hate to throw them away. And apparently, they do come in handy! Thanks to Good Housekeeping, I now have a use for those old cards. The instructions are pretty easy and all you really have to buy is a foam wreath form.
Upon seeing that craft I began wondering what else could be made using leftover cards. I then created a super simple craft of my own. Normally, I would just upload a picture and type up the directions. However, this past week I was also working on a project for my online journalism class. One of the parts of the project was to create a video. I’m not exactly an on-camera type of person. I like the behind the scenes kind of anonymity that writing gives me. But, alas, I created the video (with a lot of help from my roomie Sam) and uploaded it to youtube. So, who knows, maybe it will be the next “Charlie bit my finger“.
