Green Decorating Tips

by Tori Riggs

A very new and cool way to reuse things is to redecorate them and make them simple art, containers or gifts for your friends. Here are some ways to be green in decorating old objects to make them new.

  1. Cover chair cusions with old sweaters. This looks kind of cool and will fit with any style of room.

  2. Melt down old candles. You can melt old candles into small flower pots and stick in a ready-made wick to make brand new candles.

  3. Make a tiered tray. Collect three plates and two cups that you aren't using and glue them together.

  4. Use Altoid containers as supply tins. You can give the covers different looks to make them fit your office's style, or you can just seperate the supplies by flavor.
