Recycled Crafts for Spring

Start spring off right by raiding your recycling bin and cleaning out your stash, because you’re going to love this list of spring crafts, all made from recycled materials!

1. bottle cap hyacinth printsThe hyacinths won’t be long, but while you bide your time, use a bottle cap to make some artsy ones.

2. button art. You don’t have to know how to sew a stitch to make this adorable spring sign out of buttons.

3. daffodil buntingThis bunting uses the cardboard between the cups in an egg carton, so you can make this with your leftovers from some of the other projects on this list.

4. egg carton cherry blossomsThis is such a kid-friendly project, and the end result is so pretty!

5. egg carton chickMake a whole flock of these adorable little chicks!

6. egg carton flowersI really like this tutorial, because you can make the flowers in little bouquets.

7. egg carton treeCelebrate the greening of the trees this month!

8. K-cup butterflyI wish you wouldn’t use them, but at least you can upcycle them.

9. Mason jar sceneUpcycle a spaghetti jar, instead, and you’ll be able to see the scene inside more clearly. I’d also suggest using found embellishments instead of store-bought.

10. paper bag nestI’ve found that this works great with the paper bags that wine bottles come in. Just sayin’!

11. skirtsIt’s warm enough to show off your knees again.

12. soda bottle cherry blossom printsI love using unusual materials as stamps, and this soda bottle bottom makes a great cherry blossom!

13. tin can planterIt’s time to make that garden grow.

14. toilet paper tube butterfliesYou knew that we were going to have some toilet paper tube Spring crafts, right? I mean, come on–you know us!

15. toilet paper tube chicksYep, it’s yet another toilet paper tube craft!

16. water bottle flowersKids can DIY their own spring bouquets.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
