When it comes to the holidays, there are so many things to look forward to: the food, music, decorations and of course– all the Christmas crafts! This festive time of year calls for all types of DIY projects and many times, you don’t need to take a $100 trip to the craft store to whip up a memorable craft.

This year, I decided to be more resourceful and put supplies that I already have to good use. While not everyone may have tons of craft accessories laying around, most of us do have a few year’s worth of Christmas cards at our disposal.

Instead of keeping piles of cards you’ll probably never look at again, why not make them into something useful? This year, try an Upcycled Christmas Card Topiary from Shutterfly Christmas Cards.
