Radiant Star Wheel – Our Upcycling-X-Mas Idea to Do It Yourself

Around the time of Christmas and the Advent season, everything is meticulously decorated. To get you in the Christmas mood we have a modern, sustainable DIY idea with instructions for you!

The plastic Santa Claus has had its day and the Advent wreath alone is not enough! We have a Christmas decoration that you can do it yourself.  This decoration not only makes your home shine, but it’s also sustainable too.  Here we are taking a discarded item and upgrading it to fit perfectly with modern styles such as Industrial Style or a Scandinavian Interior.
