Recycled Craft Projects

Recycled craft projects provide inspiration for people to be creative even if they don't have access to fancy craft supplies, as well as being an eco-friendly craft option, re-using waste materials.

It's all well and good saying that crafting is good for your wellbeing but if you don't have anything creative to hand, what are you supposed to do? 

We want to build a library of recycled craft projects and ideas to help inspire those without the means to afford or access resources and supplies, to try being creative with what they have to hand.

Please submit your own projects and ideas for recycling and reusing materials into creative projects.  Got your own DIY craft recipes for making homemade alternatives to art and craft supplies?  Go ahead and submit those too.

Tell Us How You Craft with Recycled Materials or DIY Creative Recipes

We would love to hear how you use recycled materials in your crafting, plus any DIY recipes for your tried-and-tested homemade alternatives to art and craft supplies.

Your ideas will help those who can't afford fancy craft supplies to enjoy some creativity, as well as inspire those who are already "eco-conscious" and looking for more green, more eco-friendly ways to enjoy creating and making.
