It is no secret; the holidays equal giant spikes in solid waste generated by households. To help combat over-flowing garbage bins, recycle and reuse your way to great-looking gifts using unpredictable materials. Skip the holiday-specific wrapping paper this year and present your present in a unique way that is as personal as your gift. Here are 7 festive examples of how the Earth911 DIY-er does gift wrap.

Have an old pair of jeans that are destroyed beyond donation? If you can salvage the bottom part of a leg, it makes a great wine bag!

All you have to do is thread some string through the hemmed cuff of the leg and sew or glue the other end (where you made your cut) shut.

Pro tip: Attach one of the pockets to the front of the bag, making a great slot for a greeting card or handmade wine cork coaster to go along with your drink inside.
