Upcycled Holiday Ornaments...a Tutorial!


Upcycling helps me save money.  Plain and simple.  So when holiday time came around, I looked around my studio for things I could upcycle into ornaments and other decorations.  There were endless possibilities...I was like a kid in a candy store, ha.

Here are the three projects that I decided on:

Upcycled Sweater and Bottle Cap Ornament

Upcycled Vintage Book Page Ornaments

Upcycled Fabric Scrap and Bead Ornament

I have all of them on my tree together with my machine felted circle garland, and it looks SO cute!

You can get an ezine version or a print version of all three tutorials over at The Handmade Gift Guide.  If you have trouble with any of the steps, leave a comment here or send me an email!  As always, send me photos of your completed projects!

Next week I'm working on a Valentines Day tutorial for the February edition of The Handmade Companion.  In the meantime I will be posting a few more tutorials soon (right here on Upcycle Your Life).

What is your favorite upcycled holiday ornament?
