Recycled Ornaments

December 15th, 2009

I've been enjoying what the Creative Every Day Challenge participants have been doing with the recycling theme! A few people have recycled items to make super cool Christmas ornaments. Seeing them reminded me of the clothes-pin reindeer I made as a kid (which I still own and love!) Those handmade ornaments are the best kind I think. :-)

Regina, at Creative Kismet, used old paper rolls, to make these adorable hand-painted ornaments. She's got a great tutorial on how to make them too!

And Melissa, at Dandelion seed on the updraft, embossed the lid from a tin of raisins to make a fabulous ornament. So creative!

Do you have any favorite ornaments made from recycled items?

Hi Leah,
I have just posted a tutorial about making clothes pin angels! I would love to see your reindeer. Like everyone I have been fluffing about with holiday preparations. Getting back here is like coming home… Merry Xmas to you. PS – I’m useless with Twitter. Still trying to figure out how to post you as I should with the # sign. Maybe I will use this holiday time to brush up on my tweeting ;-)

Leah, I just posted a holiday festival post over on the Mother Henna blog — if you wanted to share this FABU post about your recycled ornaments there, please know you are soo soo soooooo welcome:

For the post, I shared photo from studio shoot with more details images of the dolls… posted a how-to on the dolls, too — also along the recycled theme coz I was using up scrap fabrics, ends of spools of thread, stuffing them with scrap fabrics and such… anyway… lots of miracles to you!!
