Since I wasn't able to stay awake long enough to post all of the fabulous Christmas repurposing ideas last night, I will post the rest of them now.
There are some truly creative and inspiring ideas here, folks. Hope you can find one or two to use for yourself. :)
Repurposed rulers turn into a rustic Christmas tree decoration.
Take an old slab of wood and some yarn and make it into a beautiful piece of Christmas art.
Glue circles cut from Christmas cards to those clear 'stones' from the dollar store with a dollop from a glue gun, stick a magnet to the back and VOILA- Holiday magnets! I have also done this with my friend's family pics. Love.
An old, out-dated placemat gets a new life snipped into ornaments for the tree. Just add a loop of twine and a cute red button to each.
I really love this. Create a luminary from repurposed Holiday cards. Amazing.
Old buttons get a new lease on life as an adorable ornament. Simply thread yarn or wire through and add a cute ribbon.
Now, this takes a bit of dedication....but, you can reuse old jam jars to hold hand-poured candles to give as gifts.Very lovely.
For any fishermen/women (or fishermen/women's partners, haha) out there, if you have an old minnow bucket lying around, you can repurpose it into a beautiful lantern.
Another one of my favourites...Old screens become fabulous
And...the best for last. How beautiful are these?! Simply spray paint an old light bulb with silver after wrapping the bulb in lace. Gorgeous!!
Well, that ends my Christmas/ Winter Holiday repurposing posts. Or, does it.....??? Stay tuned for ideas for after the holidays... Here's a teaser...
You can reuse Christmas cookie tins as storage tins. Simply Spray with chalkboard paint and label. Brilliant.
Happy Holidays, friends. Peace.
*Oh, and most of these were found on Pinterest- as if you didn't know. haha.
