I’ve spent WAY too much time looking at crafts online, so I thought it was time to share some links so I could at least PRETEND that I was doing something useful. HA!
These are all crafts that I could do with leftover stuff hanging around my house, hence the title Recycling Crafts:
Pillow Case Tote– I totally have a pile of random pillow cases that match NOTHING. Do you?
Shrinky Dink Ornaments– Recycling #6 plastic is not easy around here and this craft can make use of those salad boxes taking up space in the landfill. I don’t eat those salads, but I might just so I can have the box and do this cute craft.
Bracelets of Power– Hello, use for the leftover glitter and tiny-beads-that-I-can’t-even-figure-out-why-I-have!
Advent Calendar– FINALLY, something to do with the mate-less child socks. Though, I might need to invest in some dye to spruce up my pile.
Towel Kitties – These are the single cutest thing I’ve ever seen done with an old towel. And I have a HUNDRED in the rag bin.
Coin Ring- I might be weird, but this is awesome, and I have an excess of repetitive foreign pennies.
Fabric Garland – This craft will work with the tiniest scraps of leftover material.
Etched glass– Again, maybe I’m crazy, but I have plenty of glasses that don’t match anyone anymore and would be awfully cute all etched up for the holidays.
Ornaments -Yet ANOTHER great use for fabric scraps and involves NO SEWING.
Really Cute Calendar– This isn’t really a recycle-thing-u-already-own craft…unless you own a paper company or something, but she uses recycled paper and it’s ADORABLE!
