Arts and crafts can be made from recyclable materials too!

I love making arts and crafts, and some of my favorite arts and crafts projects involve junk, trash, broken things, etc.  Why?  Well, for one, if you are using stuff you can easily find at home (jars, tin cans, newspaper, pop bottles, etc.) then that means that you don't have to spend money at the store to make your projects.  This is very important these days, as money is hard to come by.  Another reason I like this "turning trash into treasure" mentality when it comes to home arts and crafts projects is because I believe in "going green," promoting sustainability, and reducing, reusing, and recycling.  So since I love being creative and I love working to save the Earth, making crafts at home from old stuff is just one great way for me to combine those two loves into one awesome good time!

Now, since I DO love "recycled crafts" so much,  earlier today I was drawn into an article by GreenVerbs on List My 5 that I liked so much, I decided to share it!  Check it out here:

The Top Five Recycled Crafts Websites

I hope you check them out and get inspired!  Have fun!
Peace and Love,
Meagan
