Each card will be a little different with the kids drawings and make them even more personalized. Add some glitter or use their fingerprints as the light bulbs, and you’ll astound everyone with your craftiness.

You can also use items you have around the house to create holiday pieces on your cards. Buttons make a great snowman, but they could also serve as mistletoe or ornaments on a tree.

Speaking of ornaments, why not put them on your card? These pearls give this card a great touch, but again, you can draw ornaments, use glitter and glue or cut out scrapbook paper.

Scrapbook paper is always nice, but don’t feel like that’s your only option. Use paper from an old book, a newspaper, or sheet music to cut out holiday shapes for your DIY Christmas cards this year.
