This year we have made our Christmas decorations out of paper that we were going to recycle. Paper chains, paper snowflakes and a paper/cardboard snowflake wreath. The paper chains are being held together by a no-staple stapler (no unnecessary use of steel for staples). The wreath is from old cardboard, paper, a bit of glue and paper raffia from the handle of an old bag for the bow. A little bit of deft cutting and we have a lovely little Christmas theme all from waste paper! And it can all be composted on our return from holidays. A good bit of sustainability and creative craftiness in action.
Might look to match the heat with the theme next year though!
