My favorite crafts are Recycled/Repurposed Crafts, so I thought I’d put together a few ideas to inspire your crafting this Earth Day. Whether you’re looking to create recycled Spring decor, upcycle old clothing, or repurpose antiques into new furniture I hope these crafts will inspire you to create sustainably, and craft on any budget!
There are so many ways to recycle Tin Cans. You can decorate them and use them to organize your desk or craft table, you can hang them on the wall in your mudroom or entry way to hold items you don’t want to forget on your way out (keys, chap stick, gloves), or you could fill them with flowers like these! The possibilities really are endless.

Maybe it’s just because I have a lot left over from Easter, but I have been egg carton crazy lately. I love this idea for a baby mobile made with painted egg carton flowers. I kind of like the idea of decorating with mobiles in more rooms than just the baby room. I think these would make whimsical decor on my covered porch as well!

Baby clothes are so expensive, and I hate throwing socks away. These Baby Leggings made from old socks are the perfect solution! I’m thinking they’d turn out really cute with mismatched socks also, as long as they are the same size.
