Make your own holiday ornaments using recycled materials

I always enjoy the challenge of creating something really lovely out of materials that have been discarded, neglected, thrown out or otherwise deemed unworthy. These holiday ornaments are fairly simple to make with materials you already have at home, and can be a fun family project, so put on the holiday music, heat up some hot cocoa and have some fun.
First, gather all your materials. You can use old books that have illustrations or ones that just have text, books with a holiday theme, or really any book you have laying around.
Then, follow these steps:
Put it on display.
When its time to put your ornaments away, be sure to pack them individually in a strong-walled container, otherwise they can get crushed and lose their shape.
You can add color to the edges of your ornament by brushing them with paint or running a marker along the edges, or by putting glue on the edges and rolling them in glitter.
You can use magazine pages or illustrated books for more color.
For a glossy finish, you can spray your ornaments with clear Modge Podge spray.
