Recycling Crafts

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

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!

Thanks for putting all these recycling crafts links on your blog here! This word needs to get out into the world….there is a more simple way to live that can perhaps save our beautiful planet Earth that we are destroying every day. I try to play my part! Check out my web link above. Namaste!
