DIY Project - Recycle Plastic Bags & Crafty Recycling

recycling by Weaving plastic bags

Here are some great creative crafting projects that lets you recycle items you would otherwise throw out!


If you're anything like me you have a zillion grocery bags. So I really like the crocheting with plastic yarn or plarn as they call it. I also love the gift wrap paper that is recycled in decoupage! Think of the amount of gift wrapping paper that is thrown away every Christmas and Birthday. I hope you feel inspired to use some of these ideas to recycle some of the "trash" you have around the house! Have a wonderful day and Happy Recycling!

Hope this inspires you to do something creative! Happy Creating!

Graphic, Web and Jewelry Designer and Artist...I'm inspired by all things creative. When I started jewelry making as a side hobby over 5 years ago, I became obsessed with the the craft and everything about it. Design, colors, textures, details and technique. I now not only make pieces I enjoy to wear but have hand created thousands of pieces for people all over the world.

Thank you so much for taking some time to getting to know a lil about myself. I hope you've found something here you love or to inspire you!
