A Handmade and Upcycled Christmas

Todays DIY and Upcycled round up on Ethical Fashion Bloggers has a Christmas theme. Christmas can turn into an endless round of consumerism but Ethical Fashion Bloggers have some inspiration for how you can be a little more eco friendly and maybe even save some money. Handmade presents also mean so much more than something bought and an upcycled outfit is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd at a Christmas party.

 Marcie of Care Wear Share has transformed Geraldine Giraffe into Gerald Giraffe with some homemade couture.

 Jean of all Trades has  a very stylish upcycled a skirt made from mens pinstripe trousers for her Christmas party outfit.

Franca of Oranges and Apples has baked delicious cookies for her friends for Chrismas.

 

 Vix at Vintage Vixen has wrapped her pressies in handmade wrapping paper made using a block stamp.

 Janet of the Gardners Cottage has made an assortment of homemade jams to give to her neighbours.

Mary Van Note has made a fabulous thrifted and vintage outfit for Christmas.

I have made a DIY bow necklace for a Christmas present, featured on Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and looking forward to lots more Ethical Fashion Bloggers DIY round ups and outfit posts in the new year.

with warmest wishes

Christmas Upcycled and DIY Round Up – 21st Dec

 

I am afraid with everything going on for Christmas, I forgot to post about the Christmas DIY round up that was going to happen on Monday. As it is only a few days away now I have decided to extend it to Wednesday 21st December.

So if you would like to participate in the Ethical Fashion Bloggers Christmas Upcycled and DIY round up please post your links in the comments section of this post by the end of the day (whatever time zone you are in) on Wednesday 21st Decemeber.

You can feature any DIY or upcycling project that has some sort of connection to Chrismas perhaps something for a Christmas party outfit or some thing that you have made to give to some one else or even something that just looks festive because it is red or sparkly.

I can’t wait to see what you have made. If you are not already a member of Ethical Fashion Bloggers, you can join us here to participate in this round up.

With warmest wishes

Ceri

What the Ethical Fashion Bloggers Wear To Party

We asked the members of Ethical Fashion Bloggers to share with us what they will be wearing to party this Christmas. Here are some of the fabulous outfits, each with their own fabulous and unique style and minimal impact on the environment. Congratulations to you all on looking so amazing and wishing you a very Happy Christmas!

Franca of Oranges and Apples looks super festive in her vintage sixties dress, so perfect for an office Christmas lunch.

Vix at Vintage Vixen wishes everyone a Hippy Christmas in her beautiful Vintage maxi dress complete with a handmade variegated ivy head dress.

Janet of The Gardener’s Cottage looks so chic in her sequin and chambray outfit inspired by a J Crew look and featuring a dress from 1986!

Dora of Vintage Passions Just Like Mine will definitely be making a style at Christmas parties this year with her Neopolitan icecream inspired outfit. That amazing dress was just 10p from a jumble sale!

Dressember the 2nd

Jesse O of Jesse.anne.o gets ready to party in truly versatile party dress. This vintage sixties dress is so Jackie O.

Sarah of Misfits Vintage will shimmer this Christmas in a vintage seventies maxi dress accessorised with an antique brass key necklace that she made herself.

 

Lastly, I got the rare opportunity to party last weekend (well it is almost Christmas). I decided to wear a chiffon and lace vintage dress with an rather experimental fifties inspired hairstyle, further details of my outfit on Ethical Fashion Blog.

Thanks to all who have participated in this challenge. Next week we will be sharing our Christmas/ holiday DIY projects. If you would like to join us at Ethical Fashion Bloggers, you can do so here.

With warmest wishes
