Holiday Card Luminary

If you are like me, you get all sorts of Christmas cards in the mail and end up tossing them out at the end of the season. This year, I decided to make use of them and repurpose them into Luminaries. Not only am I doing something useful with them, but I am also getting a jump-start on some holiday gift giving for next year. These are so cute and so easy to make. They make adorable teacher gifts or are great for anyone else on your list that you just need an extra item for. Have fun and happy crafting! If you love to craft, share your ideas with us. We love to see what others are up to. Supplies: •Old Christmas card •Glass cylinder •Mod podge •Paint brush •Scissors How-to: Step 1 – Cut the front of the Christmas card off. (I chose to tear the edges, just to make it look a little more vintage.) 2 min. STEP 2 – Put a tiny bit of mod podge onto the back of the picture and place it onto the glass. 2 min. STEP 3 – Cover the entire glass cylinder with mod podge. When going over top of the picture, be sure that all edges are sealed well. 5 min. Step 4 – Let dry. 2-3 hours. STEP 5 – Cover the entire glass cylinder again with mod podge. 5 min. STEP 6 – Let dry. 2-3 hours. [nggallery id=305]
