How One Can Make Some Holiday Decor The Simple and Sustainable Way

Making holiday decorations does not have to be difficult(especially when one is hard up for money). There are many ideas one can use(during the holidays) and keep the sustainability going into the new year. There is no reason for people to not practice sustainability this year, according to Helen Schifter

1)The Tiny Tannenbaums

All one does is clip some greens into floral foam. Place the display(using egg cups) onto a silver tray. It will create a mini little forest in the house. One can also add some lights to the display. It adds sustainability and looks fabulous for the holidays.

2)A Pretty Platter

This is a fun one for those who enjoy crafting. All one does is take an unused silver tray and fill it with some silver ball and other ornaments. Why not add in some green ivy and evergreen(for those who really like to get into crafting). Set it on a table and it looks wonderful.

3)All The Trimmings

This one is going to involve some poinsettias. All one does is cut the poinsettias into miniatures. Place them into a glass and burn the ends. That will keep everything intact for a few days. The best part is that some of this can actually be used for recycling later.

4)Some No-Muss, No-Fuss Festivity, and Fun

Take some plain glass vases and fill them with some evergreen. How much one uses depends on the one doing the crafting. One can use the glass for recycling later if one decides not to keep the glass in the house after the holidays.

5)A Brass Ring Wreath

All one has to do is get some wreaths through Sugar and Charm. One can branch the wreaths out on the wood across one’s fireplace.

6)Black Pepper Tablecloth

This one for those who have a fuss tablecloth that just will not behave. All one does is use some black butcher paper to replace it. One can decorate the red napkin any way one feels inclined to. The best part is one can ditch the cloth once the holidays are over.

7)Candle Jars

One takes some candle jars that are lying around the house. Place some orange slices inside to add more infusion of the holiday spirit. One can also add some sea green coloring and red to bring more to the holiday spirit. One can set the jars on the wood fireplace or table.

8)Some Coffee Filter Garland

This is for the ones who really like coffee. All one does is take some coffee filters not being used and start having some fun. One can also use tissue paper if needed. One can find a way to make this garland at the Country Living site.One does not have to spend a lot of money to bring in the holiday spirit. All one needs is the spirit inside already and a knack for doing home crafts. Crafting is very fun and making it sustainable is extremely important to people like Helen Schifter
