Christmas Crafting

Getting rid of clutter and having a clear out is a great way to revamp your life. But Global Cool hate the thought of things ending up in a landfill. Especially when there are so many amazing upcycling ideas kicking around.

It’s time to be a winner, not a binner and really think about what you’re throwing away. We think old things deserve a bit of love so why not try out one of these fab recycling ideas and make a new treasure out of old trash?

This fortnight we have all the best Christmas crafting ideas so you can make your home look wonderfully festive without having to break the bank (or harm the planet).

We love the idea of taking old decorations and mounting them on the wall in the shape of a Christmas tree (above left) – perfect if you don’t have space for an actual tree.

There are so many great decoration ideas too from using glue and hundreds and thousands to cover old baubles or making an advent calender out of toilet rolls, to wrapping a candle in strips of double sided tape and rollling them it in glitter to make the perfect Christmas centrepiece.

You can even make your lightbulbs more festive with stencils and create your own scented tea light candles out of real oranges.

If you like what you see head on over to our Facebook page and give us a like for daily upcycling pics…
