New Uses for Old Things…

Posted on

One of my favorite articles in Real Simple magazine is the New Uses for Old Things. This month they have “New Uses for Christmas Things” ! A few of new & fun ideas I liked best from this article were…

– Using cookie cutters for tree ornaments…I don’t have any cookie cutters…but this would be a good idea for my mom or grandma that have TONS! 🙂

– Greeting cards as gift tags…after every Christmas I go through all of the Christmas cards we have received & cut the cards that are pretty, unique or would make pretty tags for next Christmas.  A way that I recycle…:)

– Shoe box for Christmas light storage…definitely going to try this

– Sugar bowl made into a candle holder

– Jump rope as ribbon replacement on gifts….FUN!

A full list can be found here:

Thank you Real Simple for your great ideas. If you don’t subscribe, I highly suggest you do! Of course I may be considered an “organizational freak” and this magazine features a lot about organization 🙂
