Upcycled Surface Design Inspiration, Holiday Edition

December 19, 2019

Do you feel that? We do! No humbuggers allowed, because we are totally feeling the holiday spirit. From the music and the decorations to the giving back and time spent with family, the Trinity Surfaces team whole-heartedly believes in soaking up every aspect of this wonderful time of year.

We’ve talked before about how upcycling leftover tile or surface materials can boost decor while also helping the environment. This time around, we figured we would put a holiday spin on both of those facts! 

Before we dive into the holiday fun, let’s talk about how upcycling can help the environment. The U.S. is the number one garbage producer in the world. On average, each citizen throws about about 1,600 pounds of waste each year. Overall, that means that 5 percent of the world’s population (th U.S.) generates almost half of the world’s waste.

So, in short, don’t let that leftover tile or surface material go to a landfill! Make use of it with one or more of these fantastic holiday upcycle ideas!

Let’s roll, shall we?

  • Christmas coasters 

Eat, drink, and be merry with these beautiful coasters made from leftover tile pieces! Our favorite part about this idea is that it makes for a great gift.

  • Ornaments for anywhere

Ornaments aren’t just for trees. These little fellas can go practically anywhere that has a hook or a nail. We love the idea of hanging them in open entryways.. Again, this is a great gift idea too!

  • Holiday centerpieces

From a LVT mantel centerpiece to a vinyl painting on a leftover flooring piece, these quality holiday additions are fantastic ideas for your home or office.

  • Feel good family tree

So simple and so meaningful, this DIY family tree idea will give the family all of the feels. Pro-tip: have everyone in the family write their own name for uniqueness and quality heirloom status!

  • Subjects of the season

Ignite your inner creative by taking holiday shapes and subjects, and finding ways to create them using leftover tile and flooring pieces! This is a good DIY project for the whole family to enjoy. 

Now, there’s no excuse to ever throw out leftover design materials. Regardless of the season, there’s plenty that can be done with it!
