Get inspired

Here at TreeHugger, we love DIY projects that give new life to old materials. Upcycling not only prevents things from ending up in the trash, but it also helps reduce the amount of natural resources that are needed to make new things. We hope the ideas on the following pages will inspire you to make some upcycled and one-of-a-kind gifts this holiday season.

Bracelets from yarn scraps

Turn yarn scraps and old jewelry into stylish wrap bracelets. You can embellish the bracelets with beads and charms, or weave in thin wire, embroidery thread and delicate strips of leather. This gift has a lot of opportunity to personalize, consider picking your recipient's favorite colors.
