How do you decorate your home for Christmas? I like to do things a little differently. Not the usual kind of stuff in other words. Well… except for candy canes. I love them cause I eat them when they’ve done their decorative dash. This year I used them to bulk up my pitiful collection of Christmas cards. I love email but I mourn the loss of cards at this time of the year. (I never send them myself either!)
You’ve already seen my Christmas tree this year…
So it’ll come as no surprise that I used a recycled tea bag and papier mache project as part of my Christmas decor.
This is a project I worked on at work with one of our participants. I made up little houses out of milk cartons and other small cardboard boxes and he papier mached them in plain white paper.
I did try writing on them but didn’t like it. They’re all plain tea bags now.
Below you can see I used them on each side of the new TV unit and on top of the wood heater.
They’ll be going back to work after Christmas to be exhibited next time we have an art show. I just needed to get some nice photos of them and hey, while they were here… I might as well put them to use!
