My Last Minute Sustainable Christmas Crafts

DIY bauble wreath

I’m chuffed to bits with my homemade bauble wreath. I’ve coveted one since I saw them in a shop a few years ago but couldn’t justify putting more plastic into the world. So I scoured charity shops for second-hand baubles and once I had enough made the one in the photo up top with a metal clothes hanger and some reused ribbon.  I followed the instructions given in this tutorial on how to make a bauble wreath.

Another really simple, inexpensive Christmas craft is recycled cards, made with the nicest bits of cards we’ve received ourselves.  Not only does this give cards a second life, it saves on packaging waste as most cards are wrapped in cellophane.

Our last craft of the year is to make homemade Christmas Crackers. I cheat by using a Christmas Cracker kit, which I got for a bargain one January! The kit doesn’t come with any gifts for inside the crackers so I fill them with gifts rescued from crackers used in other houses or sweets. Once the kits I bought are all used up I’m going to use this Christmas Cracker Template to make my own from scratch.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, full of joy and love and all the things that really count!
