The holiday season is upon us and in less than no time it will be December 25th. You may be ready to go with wrapping paper and have already started or completed your holiday gift list, but did you remember to get holiday cards? Whether you send them in the mail or attach them to each present, Christmas cards add a personal touch that will be cherished for years to come. Today, we’re sharing our picks for the top five DIY Christmas cards to make this weekend.

Drawing a Christmas tree, lights, Santa, etc., on paper may be the easiest DIY Christmas card option there is. Each card can be a little different, making them even more personalized. Add some glitter or use your kid’s 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? 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 it’s not 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.

This card may be better for older students, but it is also a great choice when teaching about lines and shapes.
