I love magazines, holidays, recycling and saving money. So I combined all of those and a couple separate projects into a Recycled Magazine Christmas Tree.
Step One: Make your own bows out of old magazines. Last year I made them for every wrapped gift I gave. Here's how: http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2009/10/make-gift-bow-from-magazine-page.html
Step Two: Make tiny Christmas trees out of old magazines. Here's how: http://greeneyed.com/2010/12/diy-magazine-christmas-tree/ The "tree" below is made from two 60-page magazines.
Step Three: Use a paperclip to put the bow on top of the tree.
Whether you celebrate Christmas, another holiday or no holiday at all, these trees are adorable! If you're craftier and more patient than I am, check out Martha Stewart's directions: http://www.marthastewart.com/269354/magazine-christmas-trees
