Next time you are making a cup of tea, don't throw out the used tea bag. With it, you can make this Unique Used Tea Bag Flying Angel.

With the aged look of tea staining and the translucence of the bag, this flying angel can be hung in front of lights to give off an incredibly festive glow. You may want to make a bunch of these to decorate your Christmas tree or home this holiday season.

What a great way to recycle the things you already use at home, right? I can see making a ton of these to spread around the house. We like to decorate with lots of LED light strands, so I can see using these little cuties to soften up the brightness in some rooms making it more cozy when visiting.

We drink quite a bit of tea at home, and I never thought I could reuse the bags as a craft project. I will have to give this one a try!

I can finally make use of my coffee filters. This is very resourceful!
