Upcycled Christmas Decorations

Ornaments have a tendency to accumulate out of control, and Christmas lights have a tendency to burn out after one season (or even one use). Instead of getting rid of these Christmas decorations, use them in your next wreath project! Upcycled Christmas decorations are a great supply for your Christmas crafts.

Love making pine cone wreaths! Here is one of mine.

I made the sandwich bag wreath. So awesome, easy and cheap.

Almost did not check this one out because of it reading as "Xmas wreaths", to me that is disrespectful. It should be "Christmas".
