On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me…. a wreath made from an old book

TORONTO, Dec. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - This year, Toronto Hydro's 12 Days of Christmas features festive conservation and up-cycled craft ideas. Each day - until December 20 - Toronto Hydro will release a no/low cook recipe (perfect for entertaining) or a green holiday decorating idea.  Recipe cards, instruction sheets and even some how-to videos will be posted on torontohydro.com/holidays, @torontohydro and Facebook.com/torontohydro.

TODAY'S #greenholiday IDEA:

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me: a wreath made from an old book https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGLetbM7k8Y

This project is great for so many reasons.  It's not only beautiful to look at, but it puts old, forgotten books to another use.  And, it uses stuff that you can find around the house. This up-cycled beauty will ensure many compliments this season.  See how it's made here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4bDlGbr9_M&feature=youtu.be

TODAY'S HOLIDAY CONSERVATION tip:

  • Roasting a turkey? Pass on preheating. Preheating is really only necessary for baking. Consider cooking multiple dishes at once, so your oven isn't working overtime.

And, because safety is Toronto Hydro's first priority, it's reminding customers to stay safe this winter season.

  • Replace damaged electrical products including cords, lights and decorations.
