It’s time to share the link love and gather some recycling stories from around the ‘net.

I’m LOVING the upcycled products from Green Cycle designs this week!

Scrap Fabric Wreath

Well yes, I know it’s a bit late now for Thanksgiving, but for us Brits we might like to borrow this idea for Christmas.

It’s a scrap fabric wreath and it looks fantastic.

Head over to beneath the Rowan Tree for beautiful photos and a tutorial for making your own Scrap fabric wreath.

Upcycled art

Lynn from Funtastically Green shared these wonderful upcycled goodies on her site the other week in her “trash turned into sassy art” post.

She introduced us to Tara Ackerman from Green Cycle Designs who creates upcycled vintage bottles, story book bottles and amazing recycled paper flowers!

Repurposing a chalk board

Hands up who had fuzzy felts as a kid? I used to love my fuzzy felt sets and spent many a happy hour creating scenes and pictures.

Over on Born in Japan, one creative mama has turned her son’s chalk board (too much dust!) into a felt board.

Check out “Felt Board Fun” for simple instructions on doing this yourself.

    Thanks for sharing these links – I’m starting on my crafts for Christmas and want to use recycled mateirals as much as I can – love the paper flowers – they are just perfect for using up some of my junk mail!

  2. Love these ideas! Those flowers are gorgeous 🙂
    Im currently making wreaths in a similar way too; but using plastic bags rather than fabric! Keep the crafty Ideas coming 🙂
