Clever Trash to Treasure Earth Day Crafts
Earth Day is next week already! I swear it was just Christmas. Where does the time go? In honor of this important national holiday, I thought I’d put together some fun and clever trash to treasure Earth Day Crafts. Each craft has a step by step photo tutorial done by yours truly! I hope you try some out!
I still have these macramé lanterns hanging in my back yard. They are great especially this time of year in southern California while entertaining outdoors. I light the tea lights before sunset and they stay lit for several hours.
Can you believe it cost me nothing to make this butterfly wreath? I made it out of branches from my backyard and a wire hanger. I decorated it with butterflies I cut out of an old book and used beads and twine for the antennas.
Does anyone use a phone book anymore? Here’s a fun craft you can do with all those pages.
This is another great wreath tutorial. I made this one also out of book pages. For the wreath I used Plumber’s insulation.
This makes a great gift. It’s a clever way of hiding some important things or extra money in an old hardback book.
I had bought some old coffee bean sacks at a flea market and ended up making some fun outdoor pillows for my back patio.
