25 Tips of Christmas – #23 – Creative uses for old things

#23 – Getting Creative 

I love Real Simple Magazine.  I read it from cover to cover each month.  So I thought I would share some tips they are offering as part of their New Uses for Christmas Things.   You can see the entire list here –  http://www.realsimple.com/new-uses-for-old-things/new-uses-christmas/diy-gift-wrap-00100000072888/index.html?xid=weeklynews-12-21-2011

Here are a couple of my favorites:

#6 – Stretchy Bracelets as Wine Charms

#9 – Paper Clips as Wrapping Paper Holder

#12 – Luggage Tag as Gift Label

#22 – Book as Misleading Gift Box

#23 – Cookie Cutters as Ornaments

#32 – Oranges as Mini Snowman

#42 – Scarf as Christmas Tree Skirt

Question of the day – what fun and different things do you use old things for the Holidays?
