4. Spectacle Pendant by Green Issues

I never would have guessed that the modern pendants above were made from lenses from glasses! If you have an old pair of glasses lying around, or you find some at a thrift store or garage sale, check out Green Issues’ tutorial to see how to make your own pendant!

  1. It’s cute, but how is it green? It uses a brand new tank top, fabric glue (read plastic) and fusible webbing (contains plastic, packaged in plastic). To me, green crafts should not be those that contribute to landfills but that keep things like plastic and other waste OUT of them.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I assume you mean the skirt? It doesn’t say in her tutorial that you use a new tank top, and you could certainly use one that’s in your closet or from the thrift store. She also makes the embellishments from scraps. I agree that fabric glue is not the greenest material, but we believe in embracing all types of reuse. If you are upcycling a tank top with fabric scraps, a little glue is a drop in the bucket, isn’t it? If you prefer, you can always sew the appliques on instead of gluing.

      I encourage you to enter your own green crafts projects in this month’s showcase. It sounds like you have some waste-free projects you could share!
