What you needEmpty tall chip can
red or green yarn (or color of choice)
Christmas floral pick
hot glue gun
1. Begin the Christmas card holder by removing the bottom of the chip can with a can opener. Save the bottom piece.
2. Next, begin to wrap the red or green yarn around the chip can, lengthwise. The yarn will wrap around the entire length of the can and then wrap inside the middle of the can (see photo for help). Keep wrapping the yarn over and over until you can no longer see the chip label. But don’t wrap too much, you do not want the strands overlapping too much.
5. To finish off the Christmas card holder, I used a pretty Christmas floral pick. You could also use a pretty bow. For the floral pick, just bend the wire holder as shown, then thread it into the top of the can, in between the yarn. You can use some hot glue to secure.
6. To add a card, just open up the card and slip it through one strand of yarn. Slide the card in so the yarn lies in the inside crease of the card.
