It’s that time of the week again! My fourth DIY tree trimming round up, and this week I am bringing you some great upcycled ornaments.
Last Christmas I made these bottle cap macaron ornaments and I still love them. They are so fun and they can be especially great on a mini tree or as a gift decoration.
Turns out, I’m not the only one who uses what others would consider trash, to make some pretty cool ornaments.
Sue from Sue’s Creative Workshop made these fancy little ditties out of old kitchen hardware.
Jami at An Oregon Cottage made these great ornaments out of vintage music sheets. I love that this is something you find at just about any thrift store. People are always donating sheet music!
I had these gems from Made in a Day all set for this post and then Good Housekeeping beat me to it! How dare they?! Kim makes these embroidery hoops look seriously special.
So you try that gorgeous sweater on from last year and you find a little stain you hadn’t noticed before. Well! Don’t toss it just yet. You can find a “how to” over at It All started With Paint. With just a styrofoam ball and some bakers twine, Linda turns a sweater sleeve into this cute and cozy ornament.
If you are anything like me, you end up with plenty of left over mason jar lids because you use the jars as things like candle holders or something else super cute that doesn’t require a lid. Leanne has a use for the lid rings! How cute are they with those tiny little reindeer.
If you don’t have tiny reindeer, you can give this one a go. Christy came up with this adorable monogrammed wreath ornament that also uses a mason jar lid ring. I love all things monogrammed.
But hang on, we aren’t done with those lids yet!!! DesignDreams by Anne made a snowman out of hers! Maybe I should have done a mason jar lid week.
I was shocked by this one. You will never guess what Lucy used to make this angel. You are going to have to go over to Patina Paradise to check it out, I don’t want to ruin the surprise.
Make sure you are thinking twice before trashing things around your home. You never know what you could make out of it!
