I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas

by Dinah Wulf

I’m dreaming of a green Christmas for two reasons! The first reason is because my favorite color is green, and secondly because “green” also means eco-friendly. Same word, two meanings.  What do you call that again? Think think think… ah yes! A homonym!  See? I did pay attention in school.  That or I Googled it, but you’ll never know! ;) Anyway, here we go! Some of the following inspiration are green in color, some are eco, and some are both! Enjoy!

I love these!  Tassels made from pine needles add a very clever repurposing idea to a holiday wreath.

A fun idea from Party City are these adorable candy cane Christmas cookies perched on a green cup of hot cocoa.

OK, for this one, the site it in Bulgarian, but you get the picture! They transformed 2 liter bottles into fun Eco friendly Christmas trees!  So very clever!

Here’s another fantastic repurposing idea of using a hula hoop to make a giant Christmas wreath! I picture this outside hanging off the eaves of a roof.

You have to try these Emerald Fir Candles.   The colors are fantastic in person, especially the metallic green.  Emerald Fir is Colonial Candle’s December fragrance of the month, featuring a festive swirl of ground cinnamon, peppered clove and maple.  So good!  It’s the perfect Christmas sent without being too over powering.

A fun and simple craft you can do with your kids, is make these adorable yarn Christmas trees to add to your holiday décor.

Both green in color and eco-friendly green, recycling wine bottles into a candle centerpiece is another easy and inexpensive way to add oomph to your dinner table. Embellish them with velvet ribbon in hues of green and add rhinestones to glam them up a bit!

I heart this Christmas ball wall art! What a unique and beautiful way to reuse an old picture frame.

So simple, yet lovely, here is another whimsical green idea from Good Houskeeping.
