Tomorrow is Earth Day so we thought we’d celebrate by gathering up some posts about making crafts from re-purposed materials. From simple Earth Day crafts for kids to some pretty awesome bowls made from magazine pages, you’ll find you can make lots of re-purposed crafts for your home or for gifts!
Re-purposing Toilet Paper Tubes Crafts for Earth Day
The animals made from toilet paper tubes from Untrained Housewife are sure to be a hit with even the littlest children. At our house these tubes don’t make it into the trashcan until I find them completely squished at the bottom of the toy box, and still my boys beg to keep them. There are just so many things you can do with tubes!
How about these awesome recycled tubes turned into bird feeders from Local Fun for Kids?
I’m also a huge fan of Fresh Eggs Daily’s little potted plants with spring-y plant markers and a banner to brighten up a windowsill!
Mason Jar Crafts for Earth Day
Raising Dick and Jane uses canning jars as glassware and saves the lids to make Canning Jar Lid Garden Markers! These would be adorable in a country herb garden.
Our Mason Jar Sewing Kit tutorial is quite popular and really easy to make. It would make a great gift for the seamstress in your family.
These Glass Jar Luminaries for Outdoor Lighting or Indoor Decor from Untrained Housewife are perfect for summer nights on the back patio. Made from canning jars (a staple in every prepper’s pantry!) these luminaries are a great way to use a jar that may have a nick on the top rim and isn’t good for canning anymore.
Building a terrarium with your kids is another way to use a canning jar, or like Mary of Raising Dick and Jane, you can re-use an old plastic bottle.
