Homemade Eco-Friendly Christmas Tree Ornament Ideas
Christmas is a magical time of year where we share intimate gifts, set up festive decorations, and enjoy delicious meals- unfortunately, Christmas can also be the most wasteful. From packaging to wrapping paper to decor, there are many one-use items that end up in the trash. Furthermore, the season has a negative impact on water use and greenhouse gases.
There are 1.3 billion Christmas cards sold each year and nearly all are thrown away within the year.
Nowadays, it is imperative that we reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.
That’s why Yescomusa is here to help you with these DIY Eco-Friendly Christmas Tree ornaments.
Snowy Epsom Salt Pine Cones
Pine cones are already a natural and beautiful tree ornament. Take these fresh smelling unique seeds and create a snowy atmosphere when you coat the edges of your pine cone in glue and roll it in Epsom salt. You can use Epsom salt to frost other objects such as glassware, twigs, and candles.
Popcorn is an affordable and delicious food that can easily be turned into a decoration! With a simple needle and thread you can string together a rope of popcorn that looks wonderful wrapped around your tree! A popcorn garland makes a beautiful accent to any Christmas tree.
Christmas Card Garland
Never know what to do with that Christmas card from grandma? Turn all of your Christmas cards into a colorful display of cards. Tell a Christmas story of wonderful messages from loved ones when you make use of older Christmas cards instead of just throwing them away.
Solar-Powered String Lights
Christmas lights are a staple to any Christmas tree or even just placed out on their own. Battery operated string lights are a waste and plug in string lights can absorb a lot of power. Solar powered lights are a great way to light up your Christmas tree, the eco-friendly way! Forget about using your own power to enjoy Christmas when you rely on the natural power of the sun!

We all need a little bit of sparkle in our lives. However regular, manufactured glitter, can be wasteful and harmful to the environment. Since we all need a little glitter, consider plant-based, vegan glitter. Eco Glitter Fun offers biodegradable glitter that is packed in recycled cardboard, shredded newspaper and paper packing tape.
In addition to your plant-based glitter consider all-natural confetti! Simply take a paper hole puncher and punch several holes on fallen leaves. Take advantage of the Fall colors and use the myriad of shades offered by nature.

What Hobbies Should I Try?
As adults, it is easy to forget about the things we used to love. From sports, to gardening, to arts and crafts, many adults are looking back to things they enjoyed as a child to entertain them today. Free time has sparked old interests. In fact, according to Aliza Sherman Risdahl, writer and entrepreneur, “The pandemic has forced me to be more isolated than ever before but also to rely on my extended family, and it's given me a chance to get to know them better. It has stripped me of most of my income," Risdahl said. "It has compounded the stress our family has been under due to a series of health scares over the last year and the resulting crippling expenses, but it also has reminded us of what is truly important: family and loved ones."
Are you bored and looking to try something new? That’s why we’re here! We understand how hobbies reduce stress, and what hobbies improve mental health.
