For example:

  • Re-purpose unwanted clothing, fabric and wool.
  • Reuse old Christmas decorations or small toys to make something new.
  • Recycle plastic bottles and lids into decorations.

Decoration Requirements

Size: Minimum 5cm x 5cm, maximum 15cm x 15cm.

Materials: Fabric, wool, felt, string, plastic etc - no glass and no paper, cardboard or organic matter unless weatherproofed.
