Stunning Sustainable (and easy) Christmas Decorations

paper Christmas decoration

I have a simpler white version of this decoration hanging over my dining table. I made them in about 30 minutes before Christmas dinner one year when, in a fit of madness, I decided that the room looked bare. They’re so simple to make, especially if you staple them instead of using an eyelet as show in the this full tutorial from Curbly.

Another simple but equally stylish decoration is this paper circle bauble from Funezcrafts

or if you’re in the mood for a bit more of a challenge these paper baubles from the Crafty Sisters are just too cute and would be a great addition to any tree.

I made a version of these as a garland for my sons bedroom. They were super easy and extremely inexpensive to make. Get the instructions from Homemade Gifts made Easy (love that name)

twine Christmas trees

Another adorable idea from Homemade Gifts made Easy are these Twine Christmas Trees which looked twice as good with a little LED candle inside. This is on my to-do a list for this year.

And lastly but by no means least, one of my favourite craft websites Krokotak has a photo and video tutorial for this striking paper wreath.
