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 Party Outfit Challenge

There is now less than a month to go until Christmas – eek. So time to starting thinking about outfits for Christmas and new year parties. As always the aim of the challenge is to make your outfit as ethical (and stylish) as possible. So that can include vintage, second hand, ethical brands and upcycled clothes. We would like to see what you are wearing or would wear to a Christmas party.

Any members of Ethical Fashion Bloggers can participate, why not have a virtual party and include your favourite Christmas food and/ or drink in your post? If you are not yet a member, it is really easy to join and you can find out how to here.

To participate in the challenge, just post your outfit and a mention of what it is for and post the link in the comments section of this post before the end of Monday December 13th (please note this is a week later than the original date I had posted).

A little advanced warning of the date for our Christmas DIY round up, as I know things get so busy at Christmas, your links will need to be submitted by December 18th, but I will post about this a little nearer the time.

Can’t wait to see your outfits! Have a good week.

With warmest wishes
