Up­cy­cling was the theme and cre­ativ­ity was the scene when all the en­tries in the Up­cy­cled Christ­mas Tree com­pe­ti­tion started pop­ping up around town. Here they are - the win­ner will be an­nounced later this week.

The cre­ative ladies at the li­brary have dec­o­rated their tree with baubles made out of old books, it would have taken so long to fold those pages and cut out the shapes, amaz­ing work! You can find this tree in­side the li­brary — The Cen­tre — Patuki Manawa. This beau­ti­ful tree by Jan­neke and Shaun Tata used to be their deck. Such a fun and sim­ple idea that would have taken quite a bit of work to put to­gether. It car­ries the mes­sages of Manaak­i­tanga (hos­pi­tal­ity/kind­ness/ gen­eros­ity/sup­port) and Whanaun­gatanga (re­la­tion­ship, kin­ship, sense of fam­ily con­nec­tion/be­long­ing). This tree is out­side the West­ern Bay Mu­seum. Wow, what an amaz­ing burst of colour on this tree by Katikati Col­lege. This won­der­ful big tree is out­side the Katikati li­brary and con­sists of hun­dreds of plas­tic bot­tles made into flow­ers, what a huge amount of love and colour has gone into this tree!

Pauline McFadyen de­signed and cre­ated this super cute lit­tle tree from drift­wood and shells and it has a great beachy vibe which is per­fect for a Kiwi Christ­mas. This tree and its beau­ti­ful shell an­gel is in the Arts Junc­tion.

Check out this in­spired tree by the Katikati Ad­ver­tiser made from pieces of drift­wood, es­pe­cially placed to cre­ate these gor­geous feet. The dec­o­ra­tions are all news­pa­per in­spired, so cre­ative! Come and see it at the Arts Junc­tion.
