I love so many of the suggestions in this thread!

1.Make holiday decorations. Ornaments,bunting, a wreath, wrapping paper, ect.
2.Make something from packaging. Soo much plastic and cardboard that accumulates!
3. Paper. Make whatever you like, but use junk mail,old phone books, ect.
4. After the holidays-use all the ripped up wrapping paper, ribbons, boxes,ect. to create something.

A year or two back I was in a swap where we made wind chimes from unusual materials. It was so cool seeing what everyone came up with! So, in the spring,maybe a wind chime/garden/outdoors items recycled challenge? That would be terrific. Flowerpots and seed starters, windchimes and decor, practical or purely decorative items.

Oooh, those are great ideas, bsb! 

I'm leaning toward something holiday-ish - I like the idea of holiday decorations or wrapping.

What does everyone else think?

I was thinking as I was commuting this weekend - what about holiday goods/ornaments/packaging made from things transport-related - old tickets stubs, tansit cards, transfers, transit maps, parking stubs, things like that?  Some of them have great graphics, and they are often miscellany that gets tossed in a pretty short period of time - and usually not very festive - it would be neat to make them the base of something holiday related.

how's about recycling packaging! Most consumer products come in so sort of packaging and is great for make new things. Amagine the possibles with all that cardboard and plastic what not!

How about a recycled wind chime challenge for spring? Like this craft swap. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=379325.0#axzz2zXM4EBT0
Or, a jewelry challenge-make what you like, but make your own beads and pendants. Here's a few ideas. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=356074.0#axzz2zXM4EBT0
