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.

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.

Magazine Collage Art

You may remember cutting out letters and pictures from old magazines as a child to create collages. Well, Deb from Deb Schwedhelm Photoblog took this school-time activity to a whole different level! Deb and her kiddos spent weeks clipping from magazines to create a really cool piece of “I love you” artwork.

The assortment of colors, sizes, and fonts makes for a really eye-catching piece of art. Of course, I love that this was a family project that they can all take pride in completing together. No doubt Deb and the kids will have fond memories of hours spent cutting at the table each time they walk by and get a glimpse of an “I love you.”
