Sustainable Christmas 2016

Decorating our home for the holidays has become an annual creative challenge.  In 2016, I saved waste paper for the whole year ... even though we have unsubscribed to every catalog and mailing list to reduce waste, its impossible to stop the flow of non-profit and alumni publications ... the pile was impressive.  I decided to make two collage wreaths using ripped paper.  The rest was shredded and put in glass balls for the tree or used to make table centerpieces.  Our paper got a second new life on its way to the landfill.
