It seems like such a waste to throw out Christmas cards! Instead, conglomerate a wreath for your door! Simply clip them into strips and curl them up. Just bend a metal coat hanger into a circle and tape or staple the pieces on. Cut out some cute characters like the snowman shown here. Think about colors as you are clipping. This wreath focuses on pastels.
