Looking for DIY Christmas card ideas? We've rounded up our all-time favorite funny Christmas card ideas and Christmas card photo ideas, plus easy-to-follow instructions and tutorials for each. These DIY Christmas cards are so simple to make, loads of fun to share with friends and family along with DIY Christmas gifts, and take very little time to throw together. (Believe it or not, some of the cards we've included here can be whipped up in a matter of minutes, so you can spend more time on decorating your tree!). Still, as easy as the crafting process is, you can be certain that every ounce of extra effort you put into these cards is sure to be appreciated by all their recipients. After all, a handmade Christmas card signals to its reader that you put time, thought, and care into its creation, and ultimately reminds them just how much you care. Whether it accompanies a sweet-smelling, freshly-baked food gift or dangles off of an equally special homemade ornament or wreath, your crafty, heartfelt card will get noticed (and maybe even Instagrammed). And of course, you don't need to make every element of your Christmas gifts. Even a store-bought present for Mom or an inexpensive gift for your best friend can get upgraded in a big way when you tack on a handwritten card.

Handmade Cards

A sweet alternative to store-bought cards, these greetings put your tree-decorating skills to work — on a small scale. Download our illustration, and print in color onto 8 1/2- by 11-inch card stock. Fold the stock in half lengthwise, creasing with a bone folder.

For the card at top left, attach small bugle beads and paillettes to the tree (use craft glue for all designs).

To replicate the middle version, cut out ornaments (made by tracing a button), a tree base, and a star from patterned fabrics and adhere.

Make the last card by zigzagging a length of ribbon across the tree. Fold the ends under and glue, then try other widths of ribbon to craft a base, star, and gift. Or use your imagination, and whatever supplies you have on hand, to make your own one-of-a-kind cards.
