Holiday Cards DIY

Here is one way to spread the cheer this season! One of my favorite parts about the holidays is receiving all the yearly updates on friends and family from all over. I always end up running out of room on the mantle, by the end of the year the cards have been spread throughout the house! My aunt pins all the holiday cards to the archway in between her living room and dining room, it's always lovely to see them up! What do you do?

Holiday cards
Go to your local grocer and buy fresh sprigs of holiday herbs!

Mini Wreaths
spool wire
greens (we used boxwood, oregonia, rosemary, myrtle, seeded eucalyptus)
floral tape (optional)
1. Make a small, round shape by twisting a couple pieces of wire together. Our wreaths are about 1" in diameter.
2. Clip pieces of greens, removing leaves from the bottom inch of the stem.
3. Twist the greens around the wire until it is covered.
4. Keep twisting small pieces of greens around the form, securing them under the other stems as you go. Secure with wire or floral tape if they need extra reinforcement.
5. Clip any stray stems that disfigure the shape of the wreath.

The Cards
card stock
1. Cut a square of card stock (ours are 2" x 3") and punch a small hole in the center, top of the card.
3. Attach a mini wreath by tying a piece of twine through the hole.
These little cards will be so cheery hanging in a cubicle, on a fridge, or inspiration board all season!
