20 Earth Day Crafts: Get Your Reuse On!

Earth Day Crafts

This Monday is Earth Day, and there’s no better time to get your green craft on!

…actually, if you want to tackle some of these fun, eco-friendly craft projects over this weekend instead of waiting for Monday, we will never tell.

Of course, around here we want to make Earth Day every day. The environment matters all the time, not just once a year, but what I love about Earth Day is that it’s a chance to really take stock and focus on how we want our crafting to make our lives a little more Earth friendly. It’s also a chance to show off the power and the fun of green crafting to folks who might not be as receptive to that message the other 364 days of the year.

Ready to get your Earth Day craft on? We’ve got projects to help you reduce your impact in the kitchen, to fancy up your garden, and to get your kids involved!

    Reuse on!
    To celebrate Earth day I made from repurposed materials sweater coat:

    For embellishments I used wet and needle felting, embroidery, beading and appliqués.
