Reuse and Repurpose with These DIY Ideas

Happy Earth Day everyone! April 22nd is Earth Day and such a great way to celebrate our beautiful planet! There are so many ways you can celebrate Earth Day in your every day life. 

The biggest focus during Spring and Earth Day is the idea of reusing, repurosing, and recycling. They say one man's trash is another man's treasure - a motto we whole heartedly believe in! We've collected some of our favorite ideas and crafts that incorporate recycled materials

DIY Party Favors

These DIY party favors are super cute and use recycled materials. Start saving paper towel rolls that you would normally throw out as well as different types of paper you want to use to decorate your favors. 

DIY Envelopes with Recycled Paper

Get crafty with DIY envelopes ! What an amazing way to use old wrapping paper or scrap paper. Be extra creative when you give your next homemade card with your own matching envelope!

Too cute! We love this up-cycled polka dot vinyl vase . This is fun way to update your décor without spending a lot of time or money! Don’t throw out anything in your home without considering repurposing it. You’ll be surprised with all the fun and creative ways you can update your furnishings.
