4 Upcycled Crafts To Save Your Planet This 2021
When it comes to doing crafts, we may often forget this one simple question: How does it affect Mother Nature? Some leftovers from our project may go to waste, which is not green-friendly. It is about time that we focus more on upcycled crafts.
Check out these five examples of upcycled crafts to save your planet this 2020.
- Coffee-can planters
If you buy your coffee in cans, chances you have the empty cans after the coffee is gone. Instead of leaving them unused, wash them clean before filling them with fertilizers, flower seeds, and some dirt. You get yourself some planters for your small garden.
- Soda-can pencil case
This is one of the easiest, upcycled crafts to do after the coffee-can planters. Just the same, remove the top lid after you finish drinking. Wash the whole can clean before you put some pencils, pens, and ruler in. You can even decorate the surface with some paper crafts and tie it with a ribbon.
- Mason jars to store things
Do not ditch your mason jars since they can be used for plenty of other things. For example, to store spices and other ingredients in the kitchen. You can even make them look more beautiful by decorating the jars and the lids. Try to paint the glass jar with acrylic paint and spray-paint the lid with golden or silver spray paint.
- Wall decor from old magazines
Stick colorful pages of your old magazines together into a large flower. After that, tape it on the wall for an upcycled decoration. Alternatively, you can place this decoration inside a frame before you hang the frame.
