Still pondering what to do about holiday cards? Me too! Here’s my plan: Tackle them this weekend with a pair of scissors in one hand and a glass of eggnog in the other. Instead of the typical store-bought greeting, I’m thinking I’ll go all-out with easy homemade ones. (Psst…Did you see Kim’s amazing modern tree and ornament cutouts?) For the third installment of 12 Days of Handmade, I give you this adorable bird-and-branch greeting.

For the bird, find a printable design online or reuse Christmas cards from  years past. Then, create the textured branches with pine cone scales, and deck it out with glittery glue. Impressive and easy. Done and done.  Get the full how-to here >>
