Fun UPCYCLED Christmas ideas!

I just love making old items new. (I’m kind of obsessed with it!) Since I’m on ETSY so much of my day, I started making a Christmas list. One of my searches was specifically for upcycled items. So if your trying to come up with some earth friendly & unique ideas for xmas presents I’ve found some great items to share with you!

One item I use every time I do laundry is the wool dryer balls. They are great! And on a side note, my cats also LOVE them! They are always hang around the dryer on laundry day waiting for them to fall out. They can chase those things forever! There are not only made from upcycled sweaters but they help dry your clothes up to 30% faster & help cut down on static. Click on over to the The Big Red Barn to get your own.

I am always working to add more upcyled items to my own shop as well. That’s what got me into selling on etsy in the first place! I’m excited to show you what I just recently made for our entry way! I will be posting on that later……..

Happy shopping!

I love some of your finds - wonderful!

The only problem I have with Etsy sometimes is the overuse of the words "vintage" and "antique."

Antique has to be at least 100 years old by definition - and vintage is a few decades back - so I will avoid sellers that use those descriptions without the reasoning. I know that sounds silly, but it is just a stickler for me.

I have found some wonderful things on etsy - there is a lot of talent there.

[And Prarie's dress makes me wish I had a toddler - but those wool boot will be on my list for a new baby to born soon in our family - yay!]
