It came time to buy some extra Christmas decorations this year, and I hesitated. Maybe more cheap, plastic crap isn’t what the world needs right now? Maybe the abused workers and toxic environment of Yiwa, China aren’t worth a few decorations in my home?
Dylan and I started brainstorming about ways to decorate without buying plastic things. We recently cut down a few teetering pine trees. Perhaps I could make garland from their branches? We have all kinds of materials lying around to make homemade ornaments, from paper to wood to old toys.
I went looking for winter crafts using natural materials gathered from outside. I found a few to share with you!
