As the holidays approach, you may find yourself eager to get decorating! Today, as part of our Holiday DIY Series, we are going to be sharing some ideas for eco-friendly holiday home decor! These simple projects will have a wonderful effect on the feel of your home this holiday season and they won't break the bank to create!
Evergreen Sprig Placecards
If you have some paper (maybe reuse last year's Christmas cards?) and access to the outdoors, you can make these adorable placecards from Spoon Fork Bacon. They'll be fragrant as well as decorative whether you use sprigs of evergreen or fresh rosemary! Not hosting a holiday gathering? Try them as gift tags instead.
These festive candle votives will add a cozy glow to your dining table. Get the full tutorial from BHG.com then settle in with your favorite holiday tunes playing to pull each centerpiece together!
Snowglobes are a winter classic! Individually tailoring these to your own tastes will be a fun way to style your space for the holidays and reusing old jars and toys will give them new life. Children will love to see little animals inside and trees like the ones above are always darling. Follow the tutorial from Instructables here, but think outside of the box, too. We have globe printed marbles that would be great in a snowglobe made for travelers! To make your snowglobe last longer, add a little vegetable glycerin (available here at Sunflower) and keep out of sunlight.
Try making a layered centerpiece with dried goods! This one is layered with coffee beans, split peas, and peppercorns. It gives the centerpiece an earthy look that is eco-friendly. Pop some candy canes, a tea light, or holly branches inside or add a layer of red lentils! We offer all of these dried ingredients (and SO many more...) in bulk so you can get them at a great price! Another wonderful part about this craft - it's completely kid friendly.
