It’s not a craft, but one of my favourite reusable Christmas decorations is my amaryllis bulb. I got it as a Christmas gift I think 3 years ago and I just replant the bulb every year. If you take good care of it, that one bulb can last years and years.
Amaryllis flowers are a very popular Christmas decoration here! Amaryllises and poinsetta’s are the kind of flowers you’d bring if someone invited you for Christmas. Like this: Amaryllis voor een sfeervolle kerst: Tips voor decoraties I assumed that would be the case everywhere, but apparantly not! Sometimes the bulb is painted (like this one: https://www.plantje.nl/amaryllis-rode-bol/ ) I’m not sure if those are reusable, but a plain bulb can be used year after year. Mine is white and I put it in a plain white pot in the windowsill. They are really amazing flowers, when they start growing they sometimes grow so fast that you can almost see them growing.
