Magazine Christmas Tree

Here’s an easy recycling project just in time for last minute Christmas decor, from Jacky at Small Home Love.  All you need is an old magazine and a Christmas movie to watch while you are making this project.

Small Home Love magazine before

By folding the pages of the magazine, Jacky demonstrates how you can turn the magazine into a 3 dimmensional Christmas tree!  The pictures from the magazine add pops of color, and the tree has a pleasing cone shape.  It’s a unique twist on holiday decor.

Book Page Ornament

Rebecca from The Crafted Sparrow shares an idea for recycling old books, just in time for Christmas.  She’s using pages from her old books to make Christmas ornaments.

Using the book pages and other craft supplies from around the house, Rebecca crafted these pretty floral ornaments for her tree.  This is a terrific idea to keep on file next time you are invited to an ornament exchange!  It could also make a lovely sentimental present or gift tag, if you used pages from favorite books.
