How To Make Your Own Christmas Tree Card

Sending Christmas cards to friends, family, and co-workers has been a classic Christmas tradition for a long time, and all for good reason… it’s the perfect way to show them how much you care about them.

When it comes to the card, there’s nothing more thoughtful than putting your own spin on things, it’s far more personal than sending a generic card bought from the shop.

So, if you’d like to have a go at creating your own cards but are unsure where to start, we’ve put together a simple 8-step guide that gives you everything you need to create a beautiful Christmas tree card!


How To Make Your Own Christmas Tree Card


To make your own Christmas tree card, you’re going to need some materials and a few pieces of equipment:


  • - Tree card and envelopes
  • - Lightbulb Charms
  • - Pompoms
  • - Gold Merry Christmas embellishment


  • - Glue gun
  • - Sharpie
  • - A pencil



Step One

For the design of the cards, you won’t need to do any more than open the packaging! Our Christmas tree cards are already cut to shape to give you a helping hand. Perfect if you're new to the crafting scene!


Step Two

Take one of your “Merry Christmas” embellishments and peel off the plastic from the sticker on the back.


Step Three

Next, place the embellishment in the middle of your tree at a slight angle. Once you’re happy where it sits, press it down to secure it in place.


Step Four

Now it’s time to draw your Christmas tree lights! Take a pencil and sketch out 3 three light wires, being sure to leave enough room to later fix your lightbulbs underneath each wire. It’s important to draw the lines in pencil first because they can be corrected if you make a mistake! Once your pencil lines are drawn, carefully go over them using a black sharpie.


Step Five

Switch on your glue gun to heat the glue stick. Once it’s ready, add a small glue blob from your gun, evenly spaced along one of your sharpie lines. Then, quickly take a lightbulb for each blob and fix them before the glue dries. The glue likes to dry quickly, so make sure you act fast! But remember, the glue from the gun can become very hot, so always think about safety first!  


Step Six

Repeat the process on each sharpie line. This will create the illusion of Christmas tree lights decorating your tree.


Step Seven

Grab a handful of small pompoms and arrange them on your tree to make it extra pretty. Then fix these down with either, your glue gun, glue dots or PVA glue.


Step Eight

Give the glue a little bit of time to dry, and then you’ll be all done! Don’t forget to include a sweet Christmas card message too!


Wrapping it up

It’s almost that time again to send your friends, family, and co-workers a good’ol Christmas card. But this time around, skip the card shops and put your own spin on things!

Our simple 8-step guide will give you everything you need to create a stunning Christmas tree card that will bring a true smile to everyone’s face while looking great as a decoration.
