Corks can be an amazing item for DIY crafts, and this one is a great example of it. Instead of throwing them away, you can use them and create your own eco-friendly deer. For this craft, you need wine corks, twigs, red puffs for the nose, and small bells to wrap around the neck. You can place this deer anywhere in the house, especially in those places where you can’t place a bigger decoration, so you have to stick to smaller options, like this one.
7. Deer Silhouette Pillow
Another creative way by which you can add the Christmas spirit to your home, especially in the living room and bedrooms, is by having festive-decorated pillows. There is a huge choice at the stores, but it might be a little bit expensive at times. So, instead of that, you can try decorating your own pillowcase with a cute felt in animal shape. Here we have a deer, but it’s up to you which one you’d like.

9. Mason Jar Christmas Tree
Here’s another creative way of reusing old jars. You can make a Christmas tree with them, so gather as many you’d like, but note that the tree won’t be stable! Clean them, place ornaments or other Christmas – related items, and arrange them so that they become a Christmas tree. This is a super easy and quick craft; it’s perfect if you want a change without spending too much time or money on it.
