In Honor of Earth Day - Reuse


One of my favorite activities to keep my brain creatively thinking, is to look at discardable object and see I if I can find a use for it. Remaking,recreating or reusing has been a theme that fuels many of my craft projects,so today on Earth day, I have a few to share.
I am always surprised by packaging and how a perfectly good piece of plastic may end up in the recycle bin or the garbage.
For example, this Wash Bag from tide, a $5 item packaged in some really nice re-useable plastic that I knew I could use for something.
Then I came across buttons at an Estate Sale for a steal and did not want to pass them up.
The two were combined to create this..
My Earth Day Necklace, Recycled plastic disks and Buttons. 
A little green and a little green!
The next project was to use up those pesky Plastic Wine corks.
Not sure why I have so many of them (ha!) but I keep everyone since I knew I would eventually find a use for them and my brain finally did.
I made a cute little pin cushion and filled it with the plastic corks! They work great since the pins really stick in the cork and it is heavy enough to stay put!
Hope you enjoyed my Tribute to Earth Day Crafts!

  6. Great idea. Glad I'm not the only one who can't throw out a piece of plastic.
