Trash to Treasure projects
Nicole from The Felted Fox shares a problem that many crafters will be familiar with. “When I first started to sew, every piece of fabric seemed important. After each project I would end up with a pile of scrap fabric that I just couldn’t bring myself to throw out,” she says.
Over at The Daily Simple, Aubrey shares a way to turn old postcards into pretty jewelry. For this project, she used vintage postcards that she found at an antique store, but you could also use old postcards that you’ve kept from vacations or in your letter boxes. (If you are like me, you’ve probably got quite a few postcards in a shoebox someplace!)
April at House by Hoff nabbed an old window screen from the attic of her old home before she moved. “The house was built in 1921, and I’m fairly certain this screen was original to the house…cool!” April says.
Sheila is so good at rescues, she can pull something from the gutter and give it a successful makeover! No, seriously, over at Plum Doodles, Sheila has some great ideas for reusing scraps of gutter screen. This particular project even made use of an old framed mirror, as well.
Amy from Mod Podge Rocks recently scored a sweet little jewelry box at Goodwill. As soon as she saw it, she thought of the perfect way to give it a fresh new look with some Mod Podge and resin.
When Michelle from Delicate Construction finished a craft project using Duck Tape, she didn’t throw away the empty cardboard rolls. Instead, she looked at them and thought, “Why not make a bracelet?”
Over at Dear Emmeline, Jessica had a kitchen utensil holder that hadn’t been used since she’d attached an Ikea hanging bar to the kitchen wall. “That left me with a useless stand that either needed to be tossed or repurposed. I chose the later!” she says.
