Some old bottle caps and branches from my dormant lilies put a smile on faces this winter.
Our Girl Scout troop made Recycled Reindeer Ornaments to decorate a wreath for a local NICU fundraiser one winter. Here’s how we did the project – perfect for small gifts by little hands or a snowy day craft. It’s quick but the girls enjoyed it.
Plastic bottle lids, cleaned (even if you avoid plastic, certainly a neighbor or coworker doesn’t)
small twigs, branches or sticks
ribbon to adhere to back
marker if you’d like to add other accents, like a mouth
Glue the items together as below. Add ribbon loop on the back.
Here is the finished project! The girls were thrilled their efforts raised $60 for comfort projects for the local NICU. And I think they were just as thrilled (as I was) to see that a coworker had gotten the winning bid – and was proudly displaying in her office cube!
Those are SO cute!!!! ❤
looks really pretty – and that’s all done with recycled stuff? WOW! 😀

Absolutely adorable, even better that it’s all made from “garbage”! 😀 And best of all that it was to raise money for the NICU – fabulous.
This is so cute!
Love this idea. So super cute! It would be fun to make these with my niece and nephew 🙂 Thanks for the idea!
