I got this idea from Good Housekeeping Magazine.  These are old Christmas cards that I cut a holly leaf shape out of, I glued straight pins (or you could use toothpicks) to each leaf and stuck them in a 10" styrofoam wreath.  It took around 50 cards.

Your wreath is really pretty. Thanks for sharing such a cool idea! Now I know what I can do with all those cards that are just sitting around gathering dust.

Great idea!  I always keep old Christmas cards for crafts, and as I finish my other Christmas crafts, I'll be doing this!
