We get so many holiday catalogs this time of year and I have so many back issues of every fashion magazine known to woman, we decided that turning the piles of paper sitting in our recycling bin into ornaments would be the perfect Sunday afternoon mother-daughter activity. And it was!
We were inspired by Aleacia at Dilly Dali Art, who was featured as the Day Number 3 blogger on the Creative Christmas Countdown and made to-die-for adorable holiday cards decorated with paper scrap ornaments!
Here’s how we made our recycled paper ornaments:
- Old magazines or catalogs
- Copy paper, construction paper, or a brown grocery bag from your recycling bin
- Hole punch
- Ribbon, string or pipe cleaners
- Optional: Laminator or contact paper
Have your toddler cut out strips from your old magazine collection or the bright pages of holiday catalogs filling up your mailbox.
