Recycled Paper Christmas Ornaments

Here are some close ups and the nitty gritty on the ornaments I made for the

Better Homes and Gardens Recycled Tree Decorations.

I made similar ornaments last year, but decided to use my old scrap paper to fill clear glass ornaments this year. You can use junk mail, newspaper, old magazines, anything!

After you shred the paper and fill the ornament, pop the top back on and hot glue jute around the top half.

These would also look cute with green or red colored jute, which I have seen at Hobby Lobby.

Here is the "official" tutorial from the  BH&G website.

I have a few extras, If anyone is interested-heehee

I love how they look with my Upcycled Shopping Bag Garland and Stick/Chicken Wire Tree Topper!
