Before throwing something into the recycle bin or trash, think of crafty ways items can be creatively repurposed!
Luminaries are a fun craft project to make from clear plastic milk/juice/tea containers.
Save your egg shells, paint them with water color paints and make egg shell art out of them.
If your store still offers paper bags, bring your groceries home in a few and make a sturdy bag out of them by adding a handle. Paint the bag to match the season, holiday or whatever! It's great for gift giving too!
Your old T-shirts can be transformed into a bag by cutting off the sleeve and neck at the seam and stitching the bottom up.
