12 Things You Shouldn't Throw Away After Christmas
Your old holiday decorations and cooking scraps don't have to be trashed—these crafty and clever ideas will make you think twice before throwing that empty cardboard box away.
We've shown you how to take broken china from trash to treasure and there's a similar way to save broken Christmas ornaments, too. Broken ornament pieces (avoid any sharp pieces, of course) can make pretty mosaic tiles for anything from a mirror to jewelry.
Turns out, colorful scraps of wrapping paper are the perfect crafting material. Use old wrapping paper to create collages or strings of garland. Depending on the size of your scraps, you can also line desk drawers with wrapping paper to brighten up your work space.
If you have metallic garland, keep it around for festive New Year's decor. Then, reuse your garland as packing material when shipping or transporting fragile objects. Sending a birthday gift? Just think how much more festive your package will seem when the recipient opens up the box to find it full of colorful tinsel!
Like with your old wreath, pine needles can be used for potpourri bags or as mulch in your garden. Use the wood from your unwanted tree to either build a bird house, feeder or a cat tree for your feline to scratch away at. Once dried out, the wood from your tree also makes excellent firewood to keep you warm all winter long.
If you did your holiday shopping online, this trick is for you. Put the cardboard boxes your gifts came in to good use by turning them into pretty storage baskets. All you have to do is wrap twine or rope around the cardboard and it will be instantly transformed before your eyes. Add fabric with a fun pattern for an oh-so-pretty finishing touch.

Yes, you should definitely keep any cards from close family or friends that have sentimental value. But whether from an acquaintance or doctor's office, it's also likely that you have too many cards to keep track of. Cut up any cards you don't want to save to be used as gift tags next Christmas. You can string your DIY tags onto gift bags with twine.
