We’re all about upcycling at BBT and when it comes to Christmas wrapping and decorating it’s no different.
Here are 10 ideas on how to make something old new again. All ornaments and gift tags are available in our handmade market.
Brown kraft paper + upcycled burlap bags cut into strips + twine + ornament (ornament via Slightly Hammered and Twisted Studio)
We mod podged book pages to the kraft paper then added the burlap ribbon
Merry and Bright: We used markers to make polka dots then added a bright sparkly ribbon. Could also be done with a single color- think red or black dots! Hedgehog ornament via Not So Plain Jane
Simply pretty packages: Weave a long piece of string then tie on a pretty ornament! Snowflake ornament via Sisters Sew’n Together
Ornament Tree made from pallets and an upcycled lamp base
Upcycled wallpaper gift bags and comic book bows available in our Handmade Market
Book page bows
Vintage Plaid Ribbon! Raid your mom or grandma’s craft room.
Painted and adorned bottles via For the Records (available in our handmade market).
Have jewelry boxes lying around? Grab some mod podge, tissue paper, book pages or patterns and pretty them up! Add twine for an easy yet pretty package!
