For some, their love language is gifts.
From some, it’s acts of service.
For us, it’s upcycle projects!
What can be better than an item saved from the very claws of death?
And apparently, we aren’t alone.
We gathered up some fun upcycle ornaments from a group of blogging friends.
You can make the best with what you already have……….. AND save items from an untimely demise.
Here are 12 Upcycle Ornaments you can make for your tree this year:
