Thanksgiving is behind us and it is time to think about Christmas and all of the merriment that goes along with it. Do you have your Christmas decorating done already? I am determined to get my decorations up shortly. Over the years I have made quite a few upcycled decorations including the Snowman decoration above. To be honest I probably don’t really need anymore. So for this busiest time of the year I am taking a little break from making new things to share some of my favorite upcycling Christmas ideas from around the web.
This week I am sharing my favorite decorating ideas. So you can save a little green by saving something from the landfill. Even if you have already done your decorating maybe you will find some inspiration here.
Stay tuned for next weeks installment, gift ideas guide, places to shop for great upcycled and green products.
In the third installment of How to have your greenest Christmas ever I will share some of my favorite small handmade gifts.
The last installment I will wrap up with some quick last minute Christmas ideas.
I hope you will stay tuned and check out some of these great projects that can be made with a little creativity and some inexpensive salvaged items.
Upcycled Christmas Trees

Handmade Christmas tree ornaments are a Christmas tradition (at least in my family) and if you can make them from items in your recycle bin well that’s even better.
Chips bag ornaments (spoiler alert this is a video I made a few years a go)
