Recycled Crafts Galore!
Don't you just love recycled crafts? I know I do! There is nothing like taking something old and soon to be discarded and turn it into something stunning, practical, or give it new meaning.
Here are some of my hands-down favorites!
I have so many of these jars, you buy them in a set of 12, but sometimes only need 2 – so there they sit. Why not turn them into stunning bathroom organization?
And Beth did an amazing job taking pennies as her inspiration:
Artsy Fartsy Mama Blogger, Lindsay, is making DIY shrinky dinks with recycled plastic and it is amazing!
