Threaded Christmas Cards

It is that time again to make some Christmas cards for teachers and friends. Each year I ask my charges how many cards they want to make, and each year that number gets bigger and bigger! This year’s design is a threaded Christmas card.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own threaded Christmas card you will need:

  • Blank cards
  • A5 index cards
  • Embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Pencil

On one of the index cards draw a triangular Christmas tree shape. Make dots, starting at the bottom, in a zigzag pattern up to the top of the tree. Use the needle to poke holes through the paper. This can now serve as a template for all your other cards. Simply lie it on top of the other cards and a pencil to mark out the dots. To make it slightly easier for my charges I pre-made the holes as well.

Thread your need with a good length of embroidery thread. Tie a knot at the end.

Starting at the bottom sew up the zigzag pattern to the top of the tree. Then come back down to complete the missing stitches.

Tape down the end of the tread on the back of the card.

Glue this index card to the front of your blank cards.

Finally add a star to the top of your tree.

They may take a while to make, but I find if a fun way to spend a morning with my charges while listening to Christmas tunes. I am not sure how much longer EC and YC will want to make their cards, so I treasure this time spent together.

If you enjoyed making these threaded Christmas cards be sure to check out my watercolours and salt cards, button cards, and washi tape cards.
