Homemade Holiday Cards

Receiving family holiday cards are one of my favorite things about this season. I love hearing about life from friends and family and seeing how everyone has changed. Store bought cards are beautiful but in my opinion, homemade are super special! You do not need to be an artist to create meaningful cards for those you love and to prove it I have put together some awesome examples that are easy and kid friendly.

Thumbprint Card


Brown stamp

Sharpie pens

Card-stock paper

These are so easy and personable to each family! I fell in love the first time I received one. Each family member stamped their thumb on the front of the card and then drew the cutest reindeer features on each one. Simple but oh so precious!

Yarn Art Card



Hole punch

Card Stock

Beads (optional)

Hole punch or needle punch your template onto the front of your card. Using a needle or kid craft needle and yarn thread your template to desired look. I have seen these as ornaments, stars, Santa, etc. You can really make this your own.

Ornament Card


Buttons or jewels


Black pen or sharpie (or thin ribbon)


Glue your buttons or jewels in your preferred pattern. Once they are dry use your pen or sharpie to draw stings or hooks from the top of the ornaments. I have also seen people use thin ribbons at the top to make the hanging ornament look. Very cute either way. Add a family name or holiday message!

Glitter Cards


Glue (personal preference)



This is another card that you can get really creative and personal with. We have seen woodland animals, snowflakes, trees, winter characters, etc. and all have been so cute and simple. You can print out your template and trace it onto your cardstock or free hand it. Line it with your glue and then sprinkle on your glitter. Shake off excess and allow to dry completely.

Spend a little extra time to personalize your cards this year and have fun!!!
