Do your kids like to sip drinks from pouches? If you have a few pouches on hand, you’ll have to try this nifty upcycling craft created by Ginger of Gingersnap Crafts.
Do you have any CDs or DVDs that you don’t use anymore? I know we made the mistake of buying a bunch of blank CDs in bulk….and now we only use our iPods for music! Oh well, here’s a cute craft project for anyone else who has a few extra disks lying around, by Amy of Joyful Daisy.
Lately at The Pin Junkie, Bonnie shares her preparations for her upcoming trip to Europe. She thought it would be a good idea to bring a travel journal on her trip to write down notes while traveling. Bonnie had an old map of Europe on hand and realized she could use it to make her own travel journal instead of buying one.
Over at Doodle Craft, Natalie had some old soda pop bottles hanging around the house. Instead of throwing them away, she found a way to recycle them into a back-to-school statement.
Karen blogs at Flimsy Pi. Lately she’s needed a small table for her reading room, but when she couldn’t find the size of table she was looking for, Karen decided to use materials on hand to make one instead. That’s where some shutters Karen received from a friend came in.
Melissa blogs at A Prudent Life. When she ran out of dish soap recently, the container was so nice that Melissa couldn’t stand to throw it away. I think we can all relate!
At Growing with the Gimlins, Jody shares how her mom cleaned out her garage and passed along this cute old picnic basket to Jody. But since the top was decorated with Jody’s maiden name, she decided to give it a makeover to better fit her family.
