Congratulations to our winner, Connie! Please stay tuned tuned for our next great giveaway.

There’s a reason why repurposed furniture projects and MacGyver-style crafts are fan favorites on HGTV.com: Beyond the budget-savvy benefits of reusing old pieces, it’s also satisfying to know that you kept an old table or glass jar out of a landfill by reinventing it.

That’s why we love eco-friendly retailer Bambeco’s recycled glassware and ornaments. You’d never guess that these sparkling gems started from recycled soda bottles! We’re offering one lucky Design Happens reader a chance to win their own set of these items, along with an organic wreath outfitted with enough thyme, rosemary and bay leaves to last long after the holiday season is over.

    I take my old broken glass ornaments and make holiday mosaics in shadow boxes for gifts. I also take old blown out traditional Christmas light bulbs…the old time ones…use some spray glue on them and cover with glitter…looks great in an old glass jar.

    We spend all year looking for things (bottle caps, bag twist ties etc. ) to use for our homemade ornaments. All the grandparents, teachers, and friends get a new ornament every year.

    I have bought old Christmas ornaments at garage sales that have seen better day and revamp them so they look new and different. My tree is full of them.

    Use my grandmother's decorations that have been passed down to me!

    Repurposing old items is my middle name, lol. To name a few fun projects for the holidays, we cut the bottoms of plastic soda bottles and decorate for instant snowflake ornaments; "Single" socks and rags become a new tree skirt, and our Reader's Digest Magazines become instant tabletop Christmas Trees (with a little spray paint)…

    Christmas items we don't want to use anymore we put up on the freecycle network board and sometimes we get items off of it.

  8. Susan P. says:

    I reuse old Christmas cards, cardboard, felt, ribbon and embellishments to make miniature books with ribbon loops to hang from the Christmas tree.

  9. Anitha Kuppuswamy says:

    Reuse cardboard boxes throughout the year for other various gifts, or stash them away with other holiday items so that it can be reuse the following year.
