Who has already started wrapping their Christmas presents? Well, if you need a little inspiration and want to have a greener, cleaner Christmas, take a cue from Laura of Laura Kelly's Inklings, and turn brown paper grocery bags into gift wrap, this year.
Do you love drinking Starbucks' take-home frappuccinos? You know, the ones in adorable little glass bottles? Well, if you can say yes to that, then you are halfway to having this gift idea made, according to Laura at Laura Kelly Designs.
How's your Christmas list coming along? Have you stashed away all the gifts you'll be giving, this year? Well, if you need any ideas for wrapping those presents, Susan from Organized 31 has some great ideas for you.
Like I said earlier today, Roadkill Rescue is not a recipe sharing site! But....since my American readers have refrigerators full of Thanksgiving leftovers, I think we'll make an exception today. I'm sharing delicious ideas for using up all that extra food so it won't go to waste. (Check out the brownies made from cranberry sauce here if you haven't already seen them.) Next up is this idea for using up leftover turkey from Tracey's Culinary Adventures.
I've been careful not to share recipes here at Roadkill Rescue, since--ahem--the name of this blog does start with the word "roadkill". The kind of roadkill we're dealing with here are the objects no one wants that get transformed into something desirable and useful. BUT, there's a first time for everything, and since my American readers probably have a lot of leftover food in their refrigerators this morning, I thought it would be fun to share some ideas today for using up those Thanksgiving leftovers today. First up: cranberry sauce.
Over at her blog, Learning, Creating, Living, Katelyn tells us, "We have a lot and I mean a lot of glass jars just hanging out in one of our closets collecting dust. We go through glass jars like it's our job and I refuse to throw them away." Instead, she found a cute way to repurpose those jars for household storage.
At her blog, Literary Spring Designs, Rebecca shares her tips for giving extra personality to a tea tin. Her idea would work really well for any small metal box--I'm sure an Altoid container could be used, too.
"On garbage day last week, I drove past a house with a mound of stuff set out at the road," tells Amy Jo at The Little Moments. "I took a few minutes to check out the 'trash'. There were three TV’s, a particle board entertainment center, two wooden closet doors and a king size headboard."
Here's a fun little upcycling project that will be great to try out with the kids. File it away for next year, because this looks like something that will keep the little ones busy for hours. Rachel from Adventures of a DIY Mom came up with this, and it all started with pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
When Megan from Rappsody in Rooms found this pendant light, she was thrilled. "The shape was the to die for (hello hexagons!). However, the electrical was on the fritz," she says. "I kept the fixture around, waffling on whether I want to rewire it (a new lighting kit would do the trick) or turn it into something unexpected."
Kelly is sharing a really cute, upcycled craft that's perfect for working on with kids over at her blog Live, Laugh, Rowe. Along with a few other basic arts/crafts supplies, the only thing you need to make these not-so-spooky spiders is a few bottle caps.
