Recycle more than your Christmas cards this season. Save those cool whip container lids and made these fun Christmas ornaments.
~plastic lid (cool whip lid was used, but any size can be used)
~yarn to match colors on Christmas card being used
~craft knife or xacto knife
To make this Christmas card ornament, start with the plastic lid. Cut the a ring with the outer rim with a 1/2 inch rim space around. You can use your craft knife to cut out the inner middle (keep this for other crafts).
Trace the outside of the plastic lid, onto a large Christmas card, and cut out the card. Set aside.
Crochet around the plastic ring, crocheting into the ring. You can add a second row of crochet if you prefer. When you slip stitch to end, crochet a loop for a hanger if you prefer before fastening off.
Glue lace around top edge of cut Christmas card, gathering it often. Add more glue on top of lace trim and place crocheted plastic ring on top. Press gently and allow to dry.
Enjoy! Recycling Made Fun!
