This week I have mostly been cooking Christmas stuff and photographing it and I have had a LOVELY time! In between making fudge, baking cakes and rustling up a pie or two we’ve been making these! I’d love to see what you’ve been up to, do add your festive posts to the link at the bottom of this post. Recycled Christmas card robins, hanging from twigs.

They are a fabulous way to recycle last year’s Christmas cards – I’m a terrible hoarder and I can’t bear to throw beautiful cards away!

Recycled Christmas Card Craft

Simply stick two cards together with glue (contrasting cards make lovely decorations as they twirl) and allow to dry.

Once dry draw around my template or create your own and draw around that.Christmas Robin shape template.

Cut out and add glitter where needed.

Use a sharpie marker to draw on eyes and wings as required.

Use a hole punch to make a hole at the top of your robin.

Thread with twine or ribbon and hang.

These little robins make lovely bunting too. Thread them intermittently onto a long string, tying knots on either side of them so they don’t fly down the line to chatter to each other!

Christmas Birds together on branches with illuminated flowers.

We made these beauties in 2010, I can’t believe we’ve been crafting and blogging for such a long time!
