We’re counting down to Christmas with a new holiday party tip, decorating idea or DIY project every day until December 25. Miss a day? See all the posts here.

By now, you’ve probably received a few Christmas cards, so you might be willing to part with a few of last year’s greetings. Instead of chucking them into the recycling bin, upcycle them into holiday-perfect wine charms for your Christmas party.

Turn Holiday Cards Into Wine Charms

Find an area with lots of color or an attractive design element, then cut a small hole in the middle for the glasses’ stem and a slit so guests can easily slide the markers on and off. Vary the colors and patterns so each partygoer can easily identify his or her glass. Or, turn those cards into a Christmas tree garland instead.
