We are all about upcycling, and there鈥檚 no doubt that the holidays are the perfect time to bring back the old to make them into something new. Though some of our holiday decor will be back year after year, we love to change it up each season. That鈥檚 why it鈥檚 a great idea to take last year鈥檚 decor and use it as a part of your gift wrap. Today we鈥檝e teamed up with the Scotch庐 Brand to show you three ways to make adorable toppers that won鈥檛 cost you a dime!

Use Last Year鈥檚 Cards

Holiday cards are so adorable. Rather than living in a box, we think they should live on top of a box as an adorable gift topper.

Materials + Tools:

鈥 Scotch庐 Magic鈩 Tape

鈥 Scotch庐 Double Sided Tape

鈥 Scotch鈩 Scissors

鈥 ribbon

鈥 last year鈥檚 cards

鈥 hole punch

鈥 holiday confetti

FLags-Materials

If your cards have a single image rather than a pattern, you can simply cut the image out rather than using the hole punch.

Flags-1

First, punch out enough flags to span the length of your gift. Then use Scotch庐 Double Sided Tape to adhere pieces of confetti to each flag.

Flags2

Cut a piece of ribbon that will wrap around the box. Then use Scotch庐 Magic鈩 Tape to attach the flags to the ribbon, creating a mini garland. Tape the garland to your gift for an adorable accessory!

Flag-Final

Use last year鈥檚 garland and trinkets

Garland works as a great alternative to ribbon, and small decorative items like woodland creatures make for adorable toppers. Combine the two and you鈥檝e got a stylish gift your friends will love.

Materials + Tools:

鈥 Scotch庐 Magic鈩 Tape

鈥 Scotch鈩 Scissors

鈥 last year鈥檚 garland

鈥 last year鈥檚 decorative trinkets

Here鈥檚 the how-to!

Deer2

Wrap your garland around the decorative trinket, then cut it to size. Tape it to the present and then wrap the garland completely around the gift and add more tape to the back.

So cute and festive!

Use Last Year鈥檚 Pine Cones

Pine cones are a staple, but it doesn鈥檛 hurt to grab a few from your stock and add them to gifts!

Materials + Tools:
鈥 Scotch庐 Magic鈩 Tape

鈥 Scotch鈩 Scissors

鈥 spray paint

鈥 ribbon

鈥 last year鈥檚 pine cones

Cones-Materials

Time to spray paint!

Cones1

First, spray your pine cones with paint. We went for a metallic, but you can use any color you like. Next, wrap your cones with ribbon, positioning them in a small cluster.

Cones2

We decided to add a second topper to our gift for some extra pizazz. Use Scotch庐 Magic鈩 Tape to adhere your toppers to the box.

Cone-final

We love that these toppers didn鈥檛 cost anything!
