Easy Bingo Card Christmas Tree Ornament Craft Project

If you have someone in your family who loves the Bingo game, consider crafting up this very easy Bingo card holiday ornament. Here is what you will need to make this project.

Supplies Needed:

Cardboard Bingo Cards (ours are double-sided)
Mod-Podge Glossy-Finish Decoupage
Clear Iridescent Craft Glitter (fine grade)
Foam Sponge Paint Brush
Plaid Holiday Print 1/4" Craft Ribbon
All- Purpose Craft Glue
Hole Punch

We laid down a sheet of aluminum foil onto our work surface.

Coat the front side of your Bingo card with a thin layer of Mod Podge using your foam paint brush. While the Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle on some iridescent craft glitter. Let it dry for 30 minutes.

Flip the card over (if its double sided) and repeat the process for the reserve side. Let dry for 30 minutes before continuing.

Using a hole punch, punch a hole in the corner through the B letter or in the middle through the N letter. Cut off 5" of ribbon and thread it through the hole and tie into a knot to form a hanging loop. Cut off another 6" of ribbon and tie it into a bow. Glue your bow at the base of the hanging loop with some all-purpose craft glue.

Let your ornaments completely dry (about an hour) before hanging them onto the tree or before attaching them to your holiday packages.

Optional: If you have a Bingo card that has the number 25 on it, you can use a red marker and draw a circle around the number to add a little accent to your ornament.

Notes: We purchased our package of double-sided Bingo cards at a local discount party supply store and got 50 of them for $6.00 and they are smaller in size than the ones you use/see at official Bingo Halls which makes them the perfect size for an ornament. You can't see it on my photo's (flash wiped it out, but the glitter really sparkles pretty when the Christmas tree lights twinkle on them.
