As I searched for recycled ornaments I came across many ornaments made out of old lightbulbs of all sizes. The Grinch is by far my favorite. Hang a Grinch bulb ornament on your tree to represent the Grinch in your family. Here are the instructions for making your own.  

 

2. SCRABBLE® Humbug Ornament

This unique ornament is made of recycled wood SCRABBLE® tiles. It is mounted on a piece of wood is decorated with colorful ribbon and a jingle bell. Get double the points if you can make another word across using the letter M in humbug.

 

3. Recycled Glass Bead Ornaments

These adorable glass dolls are made of colorful recycled glass beads and raffia. One is pink and one is blue.

 

4. Christmas Tree Zipper Ornament

This is a very clever way to recycle even the smallest existing items, like a zipper tab. Check out the rest of the recycled zipper tab items this Etsy seller AmaliaVersaci has on her site. I'm tempted to get a pair of the zipper tab earrings as a holiday gift.

 

 

5. Classy Wine Cork Ornaments

These very attractive ornaments are made with real wine corks. They have been hand wrapped with wire and a variety of colorful beads. To match this set of 3 ornaments there is also a cork wreath and a cork Christmas tree along with many other eco-friendly gifts at www.sterlingwineonline.com.

I hope you enjoyed the list. There is also a surprisingly nice collection of recycled ornaments here at Amazon. May your holidays be filled with color, joy, health and eco-friendliness. Happy holidays.
