Recycling is always a smart alternative to excessive consumption that usually occurs at Christmas and with a little skill and some time you can get some Christmas tree decorations made from material recycled and without spending a hard.
Also, as they are cardboard You can let the little ones in the house play with them without danger of breaking. Do you want to know how they are made?
These pendants are made using egg cartons, specifically the two cones that protrude from the center of the container.
Some are cut straight, without making the shape of the petals and others straight and a little shorter than the previous ones.
The next step is to decorate them. I have used tempera in red and painted over it with gold enamel.
In order to hang them, you have to make a small hole at the top and with the help of a knitting needle insert a piece of twine with a knot,
then one of the smaller pieces is placed inside.
You can also put a handle and use them to contain small candies
or place a ribbon with bells as if it were the clapper of a bell.
