Upcycling Christmas Decorations: 14 Craft Ideas

Why buy new when you can transform what you already have into something magical? DIY Recycled Christmas Decorations are a great way to give a new lease of life to items that might otherwise be overlooked. From recycled baubles to wine cork crafts, let’s look at 14 Christmas upcycling ideas for your Christmas crafts:

1. How to Make Recycled Christmas Baubles

Creating your own Christmas baubles from recycled materials is an environmentally friendly choice and a fantastic way to add a personal touch to your festive decorations. Here’s a simple guide to making these unique ornaments:

Materials Needed:

  • Old fabric scraps, paper, or broken jewellery
  • Clear craft glue or a hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Old baubles or small balloons
  • Ribbon or string for hanging


  1. Prepare Your Base: If you’re using old baubles, ensure they are clean and dust-free. If you don’t have baubles, inflate small balloons to a desired size.
  2. Cut Your Materials: Cut them into small strips or shapes for fabric or paper. Select pieces that can easily be glued onto a spherical surface if you're using broken jewellery.
  3. Start Decorating: Apply a thin layer of glue onto the bauble or balloon. Begin placing your fabric, paper, or jewellery pieces onto the surface, pressing gently to ensure they stick. Overlap the pieces slightly for a fuller look.
  4. Add Layers: Continue to add layers until the entire bauble is covered. You can add additional layers in specific areas for a more textured look.
  5. Let it Dry: After decorating, set your bauble aside to dry. If you’re using a balloon, wait for the glue to dry before carefully popping and removing the balloon completely.
  6. Add Finishing Touches: If desired, you can add extra embellishments like glitter, sequins, or additional pieces of jewellery.
  7. Attach the Ribbon or String: Once your bauble is dry and all embellishments are added, tie a ribbon or string to the top for hanging. You can use the existing loop if you’re upcycling an old bauble.
  8. Hang Your Creation: Your recycled Christmas bauble is ready to sparkle on your Christmas tree!

2. How to Make Christmas Decor from Nature

Bringing a piece of nature indoors for Christmas is a nod to the beauty of the natural world and a sustainable way to decorate your home. Here's a simple guide to creating charming nature ornaments from items like pine cones, twigs, and leaves:

Materials Needed:

  • Pine cones, twigs, and leaves collected from nature
  • Non-toxic craft glue or a hot glue gun
  • Natural twine or ribbon for hanging
  • Optional: Paint, glitter, or other natural decorations (like dried berries or seeds)


  1. Collect Your Materials: Take a walk in nature and collect pinecones, twigs, leaves, and any other natural materials that catch your eye. Look for a variety of shapes and sizes for diversity in your decorations.
  2. Prepare and Clean: Once you’ve collected your materials, clean them gently to remove dirt and bugs. Let twigs and pinecones dry in the sun for a day to ensure they’re completely dry.
  3. Design Your Ornaments: Plan out how you want your ornaments to look. You might keep it simple with a single pinecone or twig or create a small arrangement by combining different elements.
  4. Attach Twine or Ribbon: Cut a length of twine or ribbon for hanging. Tie it securely around your ornament, creating a loop at the top. For heavier items, you should glue the twine in place.
  5. Decorate (Optional): If you want to add some extra sparkle, paint your nature ornaments or add a touch of glitter. Be mindful of using eco-friendly and non-toxic materials.
  6. Arrange Leaves or Smaller Elements: If you’re using leaves or smaller natural items, arrange them aesthetically and glue them onto the larger base (like a pinecone or twig).
  7. Let it Dry: Once you’ve finished decorating, set your ornaments aside to dry completely.
  8. Display Your Nature Crafts: Hang your finished ornaments on your Christmas tree, in windows, or any place in your home where you’d like to add a touch of nature’s charm.

  • Craft glue or a hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Paints and brushes (optional)

  1. Gather Your Materials: Look around your house for items that could be transformed into ornaments. This could be fabric scraps, buttons, old CDs, or even rocks you can paint. Be creative!
  2. Design Your Ornaments: Decide what each item will become. A fabric scrap could turn into a miniature Christmas stocking, a button can be the centre of a snowflake, and a painted rock might become a jolly Santa face.
  3. Cut and Shape: If you’re using fabric or paper, cut them into the desired shapes. If you’re painting rocks, clean them and let them dry before painting.
  4. Assemble Your Ornaments: Use glue to assemble your ornaments. For example, attach buttons to a CD to create a sparkling snowflake or sew fabric pieces together to form a stocking.
  5. Decorate: Add details to your ornaments. Paint faces on rocks, add glitter to your paper crafts, or sew embellishments onto fabric ornaments.
  6. Attach the Ribbon or String: Cut a length of ribbon or string for hanging. Attach it securely to your ornament. For heavier ornaments, ensure the ribbon is firmly glued or sewn.
  7. Let it Dry: If you’ve used glue or paint, allow enough time for your ornaments to dry completely.

  4. Make Christmas Trees: To create a Christmas tree, you'll need to cut the corks into thin discs and stack them in a pyramid shape, glueing each layer as you go. You can paint the cork discs green or leave them natural for a rustic look.
  5. Craft Simple Ornaments: You can leave the cork whole or slice it into discs for basic ornaments. Decorate them with paint glitter, or attach ribbons and beads for added flair.
  6. Add Hanging Mechanisms: Attach a loop of ribbon or twine to your creations to hang them. For heavier items, ensure the loop is securely glued.
  7. Decorate Your Crafts: Get creative with your decorations. Paint faces on your reindeer, add mini baubles to your cork trees, or wrap your ornaments in festive ribbons.
  8. Let Everything Dry: Allow sufficient time for the glue and paint to dry completely.
  9. Display Your Cork Creations: Once dry, your wine cork crafts are ready to adorn your Christmas tree, mantle, or any other special spot in your home.

  • Old book pages, fabric scraps, or recycled plastic bags
  • Craft glue or a hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon or twine for hanging
  • Additional decorations (such as pine cones, dried fruit slices, or ornaments)


  1. Prepare Your Wreath Base: If you’re using a metal hanger, shape it into a circle. For a cardboard base, cut a ring to your desired size. Foam rings can be used as they are.
  2. Choose Your Material: Decide whether you want to use book pages, fabric scraps, or plastic bags. Each material offers a different look and texture.
  3. Cut or Tear Your Material: For book pages or plastic bags, tear or cut them into strips. If using fabric, cut it into strips or shapes depending on the design you want.
  4. Attach the Material to the Base: Attach your material to the wreath base. If using strips, tie them around the base or glue them. Overlap the pieces to create fullness and texture.
  5. Continue Adding Layers: Keep adding material until the entire base is covered and the wreath looks full and lush.
  6. Add Decorations: Once the base is covered, you can add decorations like pine cones, dried fruit slices, or small Christmas ornaments. Attach these with glue or wire.
  7. Create a Hanger: Attach a loop of ribbon or twine to the top of your wreath for hanging.
  8. Final Touches: Step back and look at your wreath. You might want to adjust or add more decorations until you’re happy with the result.

  2. Gather or Make the Containers: Collect 24 old matchboxes and envelopes, or cut the fabric into squares to make pockets. If you’re using fabric pockets, sew or glue the edges to create a pouch.
  3. Decorate the Containers: Personalise each matchbox, envelope, or fabric pocket. Number them from 1 to 24 using paints, markers, or stickers. You can decorate them further with festive designs or motifs.
  4. Attach the Containers to the Base: Arrange the containers on your base. Once you’re happy with the layout, glue them in place. Ensure there’s enough space between each and that they are securely attached.

7. How to Make a DIY Wooden Christmas Tree

DIY Wooden Christmas tree using branches

If you appreciate a minimalist and sustainable approach to holiday décor, this craft is for you. Using reclaimed wood or fallen branches, you can create a unique tree that can become a festive focal point for years to come. Here’s how to do it:

Materials Needed:

  2. Design Your Tree: Decide on the shape and size of your tree. A simple and popular design is a triangular shape, with horizontal planks or branches laid across a vertical 'trunk'.
  3. Cut the Wood: Cut your planks or branches to the desired lengths. The pieces should decrease in length as they go up the tree to create a triangular shape.
  4. Sand the Wood: Sand down all the pieces to remove rough edges and splinters. This step is important for a polished look and safe handling.
  5. Assemble the Tree: Lay out your pieces in the tree shape. Attach each branch or plank to your vertical trunk piece. You can use wood glue for a clean look or screws for added strength. Make sure each piece is level and evenly spaced.
  6. Paint or Stain (Optional): If desired, paint or stain your tree. This can add colour or enhance the natural beauty of the wood.
  7. Let it Dry: If you’ve painted or stained the tree, allow ample time to dry completely.
  8. Add a Base: Attach a sturdy base to make your tree stand. This could be a flat piece of wood or a cross-shaped stand.

  3. Punch Holes in the Can: Carefully create holes following your design using a hammer and nail or a drill. Make sure to do this step on a sturdy surface.
  4. Paint the Cans: Once you’ve made your holes, paint the cans in festive colours. Spray paint gives a smooth finish, but acrylic paint works well too. You might need to apply a couple of coats for an even finish.
  5. Decorate Your Can: After the paint dries, add further decorations like ribbons, twine, or a dusting of glitter. This is where you can get creative and give each can its own personality.
  6. Create Lanterns or Candle Holders: If making lanterns or candle holders, place a candle or LED light inside the can. The light shining through the holes will create a beautiful pattern.
