An industrious lady in the Philippines creates lovely Christmas decorations from recycled magazines and other recycled papers.
She owns a decor company (Tamilee Industries) and normally creates upscale Christmas decorations, but one day decided to do something with a very BIG pile of magazines she had laying around. And the result was amazing. To her delight, she ended up crafting quite the Christmas flower.
From cut-up strips of paper and special glue, she made flowers like roses and poinsettias, plus different kinds of leaves.
These flowers and leaves were arranged into garlands, wreaths or even Christmas trees.
Leung said the glue helps the paper absorb color and makes it sturdy.
These are washed with dye, in tones of red and green, so that the Christmas decorations are only partially covered by color and the magazine prints are still visible.
The recycled line of Christmas decor is not yet available to consumers and probably won’t be till late next year, but now you know about this fabulous line so that if and when it comes out, you can go have a look at your local Christmas decor shop.
