23 Christmas Crafts Made from Recycled Materials


You can never have too many ways to recycled for the holiday! These 23 Christmas Crafts Made from Recycled Materials make perfect gifts or decorations.





There isn't two words that make people cringe quite the way "junk mail" does. Junk mail is just a fact of life, so if you can't beat it, why not craft with it? There are so many ways to put junk mail to good use. For example, you could lay larger pieces underneath pet dishes and trash cans to catch anything that might have fallen. Then, simply change every so often with a fresh piece. You can also use these large pieces of junk mail to cover books. If you're feeling really crafty, why not cut out certain images that you like and use them for decoupage projects? Cutting junk mail into small pieces is a great way to make your own confetti that doesn't cost a dime - your party guests won't even know the difference! If you come across a particulary interesting piece and want to save it for other crafty uses, set aside a special junk mail basket. Who knows? Maybe one day you'll be able to show off your very own Junk Mail Heart Wreath or even a Jazzy Junk Mail Bracelet. The possibilities are endless!

May be good for children to make. I do have junk mail but I was looking for something more original.

I am the biggest pack rat and my house accumulates more paper than the average persons. I don't know why, but junk mail, magazines, kids artwork, etc. are everywhere and I have no where to put all of it. This would be an awesome way to thin some of it out without just throwing it away. And, it is easy enough for the kids to do, so I will defintely try it soon.

love it!
