We have used old magazines to cut out hearts. So, it’s a recycled craft project for kids. Then we got some twigs and painted them with copper red. Then I used got glue to glue the hearts to the twigs and decorated them with glass beads and ribbon.

Finally we baked the feathery pie in the shape of heart. Kids simply loved those hearts on twigs and everyone loved the pie.

This basket is made out of recycled water bottles. The wall and the bottom consist of two layers of plastic The outer one is transparent and the inner one is white.

In between the two layers of plastic of this Valentine day gift plastic bottle basket there is napkin rosebud decoupage. All the parts are crocheted together with recycled gray yarn I bought at the flea market.

The diameter of the plastic bottle basket is 2 inches. It makes a great homemade jewelry box or you may store your scented grass there to odorize the house.

Now, guess what these recycled Christmas toys are made of. Yes, they are made out of old bulbs. And they are very easy to make. Here is what you need for making your easy handmade Christmas gifts:

– a bulb

– glue

– napkins

– color cardboard

– yarn

– some cotton wool

– any decor items or glitter

Here is your easy handmade Christmas gifts how to for bulb upcycling:

Most napkin consist of several thin layers. You need to peel them up and use only one thin white layer. You rumple it and glue it to the bulb. Let it dry well. Meanwhile you can make a hat for your Christmas toy. Use stapler or glue to make the cardboard hold together. Then glue some cotton wool or decorations to it.

Once the Christmas toy dries up, you should put the hat on and glue some cotton wool or color napkin to make a coat. You may make the hard out of yarn. You may also use paint to color it once it dries up. Your imagination is your only limit. These things turn out real cute. My child has already started to give them out to her friends and they love these recycled craft Christmas toys.
