Keeping your Christmas decorations in one-place
A handy way to ensure your Christmas baubles are perfectly preserved when unused is to store them away in empty egg cartons. The size is perfect to place your rounded ornaments and trinkets for the rest of the year and can be easily organised and stored away.
Cool and quirky cookie tray
Re-use old aluminum or cling film boxes as gift boxes for your homemade cookies. The boxes size are the perfect shape to present your goodies. Simply re-paint the boxes and decorate with Christmas embellishments and you’re set!
Toilet roll reindeers
Keep all used toilet rolls and re-use to create reindeer decorations for your shelves or Christmas tree. Using the example image below, cut the toilet roll into the reindeer shape. Once this is done, simply trace the outline with a black permanent marker and also draw the eyes and nose features.
