While I love going to get fresh fabric cut, choosing fresh supplies, or breaking out a new pair of scissors, I also really love finding ways put old things to new uses. Recycling is both earth-friendly and really fun!
My sister and I have designed two of our Christmas trees around this idea. The ornaments are all pretty simple, so take a look and see what you might make for your decorations by looking in the recycling bin or donation pile.
I can't believe this is the only photo I have of the entire tree. Everything was made from cereal boxes and catalogs!
We had only a few ornament types, but we made a ton of them! I think I still have those birds around here somewhere...
This one was made almost entirely from an old book (maybe two?) that was falling apart. As difficult as it was to cut it up, it had a great new life!
Special thanks to my sister who made all of the lovely garlands. These took her hours and hours of time...and that doesn't recycle!
