The presents were ripped open and the presents are being throroughly enjoyed -- but what about all of that used wrapping paper? Instead of tossing it in the garbage can, consider reusing it (mother earth will thank you).
4 Ways to recylce wrapping paper:
- Make a wrapping paper wreath. This is such a fun DIY project that the whole family can get involved with. Create one using all of that discarded Christmas wrapping paper and next year you will have a new Christmas decoration to hang or give as a gift! See tutorial here. You can even make coasters!
- If it's not torn to pieces carefully fold it up and store for wrapping use next year.
- Shred it and use as packing filler. Shredded paper is perfect for protecting valuable you are storing or shipping.
- Use the wrapping paper to cover used (and washed) tin cans. Then, you will have festive storage for your office or kitchen supplies. Source.
