Best of Crafting Green: Our Top Ten Posts from 2014
Here at Crafting a Green World, we tend to think that every single post that we write is our Best. Post. EVER!
We’re enthusiastic like that.
However, we’re also interested in what YOU like to read, and that’s why it was so fun to compile this Best of 2014 List. The criteria for inclusion on this list is solely what you, the readers, read the most. Do you like it when I let my kids make weapons? When Scott creates something new out of toilet paper tubes? When Becky finds the latest, greatest, greenest recipe?
Okay, it sounds weird, but it’s actually a really great, totally natural way to preserve paper. Cover a newspaper clipping, say, in a light coat of beeswax, and it’ll stay as fresh as if you’d laminated it.
Although you do have to use chemical dye for this, it’s THE way to make your beloved black clothes black again so that you’ll, you know, keep wearing them and not have to toss them in a landfill.
Got a flat sheet? Need a fitted sheet? Here’s how to make it happen.
How ridiculously cute are these? Very, very, very ridiculously cute. They’re a Christmas craft must-do.
If you like to craft with vintage sheet music, then your newest favorite project is definitely on this list.
I have to say that this is one of my favorites, too! I love making custom scents for my car, and they’re healthy scents, you know? No fake-y “pine” for me! I’ll take REAL pine, thank you very much!
Felted wool is one of my favorite craft supplies, but it can be tricky to work with. Here are ten never-fail projects that won’t disappoint.
I used probably a half-gallon of fabric stiffener on that T-shirt quilt that I made my cousin for Christmas, so believe me–I KNOW why it’s good to make your own at home!
Fifty toilet paper tube crafts. Seriously, FIFTY toilet paper tube crafts! Don’t you want to check it out just to see that there ARE fifty toilet paper tube crafts out there in the world?
This was your favorite post of 2014! Next time you’re at the beach, make your own keepsake from natural materials, and years later, you can look back at it and ask yourself the same question that I am asking myself right this second: “How was my daughter’s hand ever that SMALL?!?”
