Happy Recycled Holidays!

'Tis the season for ribbons and wrappings. So instead of reading book reviews, why not make some recycled art? This collage is made from tissue paper, gift wrap, a bread bag, some ribbon, and a piece of cardboard from a used-up spiral notebook. I think there's a bit of glitter sprinkled in there, too.

You don't have to make trees. I did because that's what I see when I look outside my windows: trees. But maybe you see snowmen. Or kids on sleds. Or ice skaters and hockey players. Or scarlet macaws and passion flowers.

Make some glue (1/2 white glue, 1/2 water), grab a brush, tear some paper, and let the season inspire you.

  1. My favorite holiday craft is still gift tags out of greeting cards, made with pinking shears! We have cloth gift bags with draw strings, so put names on them with gift tags. There's also an ornament to be made with folded circles of cards, if you don't have wrapping paper leftover!
