It’s not a secret that crafters love to recycle. There is some thrill in repurposing something that would be thrown away by a non-crafter. Today is Earth Day, the perfect time to celebrate that spirit of salvaging and creating something out of nothing. Let’s take a look back at some of my favorite recycled crafts…
