DIY Christmas Gifts and Decor Made From Repurposed Gift Bags

If you are like me, you have a stack of gift bags put away from last years Christmas and despite that – you’ve bought more! Finding myself with more gift bags than gifts, I decided to recycle a few of my favorites and with just a few simple steps created some pretty Christmas decor accents you can display in your home at Christmas or give as gifts.

If you have scissors and glue – you can do this! Just cut up the bag and glue to the candle holders or vase. If  you’re making a picture – cut to size and insert into frame. These make beautiful home decor accents or gifts and fast, affordable and EASY!

Try these easy place mats and napkin rings! Just cut off the panel of medium-sized bag and add ribbon down the side to cover the handle holds. Cut a piece and loop and glue for napkin rings. There are so many beautiful designs and textures of bags, something for everyone and great fun for the kids table too!

If you have kids, you’ll love this idea! Buy or reuse an extra-large gift bag. Remove the front panel and glue it to a piece of foam board – it’s that easy. The handle makes a natural hanger and these would be great fun for kids to decorate their bedrooms. Even if you don’t have foam board (available at dollar stores) you can just hand it as is as well.
