Recycled Halloween Party Favors

October 16, 2009 1 comment

Here is one more recycled Halloween craft project. It uses a yogurt cup and yarn to create a cute party favor. This is a perfect kid’s craft project as they can decorate the cup for Halloween. I cut construction paper eyes and a mouth to decorate my treat cup. Let your kid’s have fun with this and decorate the cups using yarn and different colored construction paper.

I used regular yarn to crochet this cup holder and the free pattern is found below. If you’d like to use vcr tape with yarn, here is that free pattern link.

Fused Plastic Valentine’s Heart

January 29, 2009 16 comments

Here is a quick fused plastic bag craft idea for Valentine’s Day. This project involves no sewing or crocheting. It’s makes a perfect kid’s craft project that focuses on using recycled materials. This project was inspired by a recent comment I received from someone who wanted a recycled bag for Valentine’s day but didn’t know how to crochet. So here’s what I came up with. By using some pieces of red and white recycled plastic bags, some scrap yarn, a bit of ribbon and a small remnant of red felt, you or your children can put together this cute Valentine’s heart bag.

Below you will find the picture tutorial that I made while I was creating this little Valentine’s heart bag. Here is the step-by-step picture tutorial on how to DIY.

Recycle a Cup into a Plastic Bag Keeper

June 24, 2008 7 comments

I have had several requests for recycled crafts projects that kids can do. With that in mind, here is a quick upcycle project that children and adults can both enjoy. First you need a large plastic container. The container I used was a 64 oz. soda pop cup that I found and decided that I would re-purpose into a plastic bag keeper.

Here is the finished plastic bag keeper

Below is a picture tutorial that I put together to show the steps for this project.
