I have always liked giving functional presents for these holiday season as well as for birthdays. And most of the years I make some time to create the gifts myself, maybe is only the wrapping (not that I create the gift per se) but something that makes it unique and more personalised.

Click on the image to go to the source and/or tutorial. Don”t forget to send a picture or Instagram it and hashtag ecogreenlove to share your ideas with us! With your ideas we can make this community grow even more! Thank you for following and happy upcycling! 🙂
