DIY Upcycled Christmas Decorations from Curtain Rings

  • Curtain rings
  • Spray paint
  • Wooden Christmas card toppers
  • Wool
  • Beads
  • Fabric Scraps

1 – Upcycled Curtain Pole Decoration

Spay paint the curtain pole ring. Spray paint a wooden Christmas decoration topper.

Using invisible thread hang the wooden shape within the hoop.

2 – Pom Pom Christmas Decoration

Wrap wool tightly around the curtain pole ring until it is fully covered, then secure. Create a pompom ( I love Clovers pompom makers).

Then hang inside the circle.

3 – Mini Rag Wreath Christmas Decoration

Use fabric scraps cut into strips approximately 58″ (1cm) by 2 ” (5cm) long and tie around the curtain pole rings.

4 – Mini wreaths with beads.

Thread beads onto a thin wool.

Then wrap around and around the curtain pole rings to create the min bead wreaths.

5 – Christmas Tree

Wrap the ten curtain rings in a green wool. Using the green wool join the rings in a triangular shape.

Once your triangular shape is complete add two brown wrapped rings at the base to represent the stub of the tree.

Using a glue add mini bows made from ribbons.

I suspect my favourite is the rag wreath – I am tempted to make lots for next year. If you are looking for further upcycled decorations ideas why not check out other tutorials on the blog?
