Green Your Crafting: Transform Everyday Items

Bottles Crafting is a great way to build community, revitalize seemingly useless items, and encourage creativity. This week’s tips will help you keep your crafting from harming our environment.

Tip #4: Turn Trash into Treasure

Before tossing anything, imagine how it could be transformed into something useful. You can make a reusable sandwich box from a plastic milk jug or convert a soda bottle into an irrigation system for your flowerpots. Try turning leftover tiles into coasters or clothespins into a photo display.

Tell us: How have you transformed household items into useful things?
