We’ve spend hours choosing the perfect wrapping paper for the Christmas presents and even more so wrapping them, and on Christmas day we are left with a chaotic mess of ripped and shredded paper, not to mention sheets of unused wrapping paper. It is almost a shame to throw it away, even if it’s to the paper recycling bin.

Fortunately, there are ways we can still use those festive gift wrappers in various ways around the house. These twenty ideas will not only help refresh the home and retain the festive spirit a little longer, but will also be a nice way to teach the kids the value and usefulness of recycling and reusing.
