Organic winter decorations are the best way to decorate your eco-friendly home and go green: nature handcrafted winter decor, organic winter wreaths, winter decorated candle holders, and more winter crafts from natural materials.

Winter crafts made from waste materials are the big decor trend for the last few years. You can find collections for recycled craft ideas from wine bottles, wine corks, mason jars, plastic bottles, and more upcycled winter decor.
