Looking for handmade ornaments that you don’t have to make yourself? We’ve got you covered! Well, more specifically, the amazing crafters of Team Eco Etsy have you covered!
When you buy from a handmade artisan, you’re supporting the arts and helping that person use her creativity to support herself. Choosing eco-friendly handmade goods takes things even further by supporting artists that are mindful about their materials and their impact on the planet. Team Eco Etsy, a collective within the Etsy marketplace, makes it easy. The team is curated by a team leader who makes sure that members really do walk the talk when it comes to green crafts.
Buying handmade is a win all around! Check out these lovely ornaments from some Eco Etsians…
1. Recycled felt ice skates from recycledparts
2. Acorn ornaments with real acorn caps and vintage fabric bottoms from Moon Flower Creations
3. Recycled circuit board ornaments from Debby Arem Designs
4. Upcycled felt hearts from Sewn Natural
5. Vintage calendar tea towel bird from Montclair Made
There are lots more lovely recycled ornaments on Etsy! The trick to finding them is knowing how to search. Rather than just searching “ornament” or “Christmas ornament” try searching for “upcycled ornament,” “recycled ornament,” or “ornament teamecoetsy” to narrow your results down a bit more.
