5. If your mom loves to cook or bake, create this recycled apron by Pink & Polka Dot! All you need is an old skirt, some coordinating fabric, and Pink & Polka Dot’s awesome tutorial!
6. Craft your own flowers instead of buying them! There are tons of tutorials on the web that show you how to take recycled items and transform them into beautiful flowers. Some of my favorites include Bottle Cap Flowers from A Bird in the Hand Art, Plastic Bottle Flowers, and this paper flower tutorial from Dozi. Remember, though, with any of the paper flower tutorials you find, try to use recycled paper instead of new paper!
