Crafty Cleverness - Recycling

Sometimes being crafty with recycled things can feel the most rewarding. There's nothing like something you love but is either about to fall apart or to be binned and turning it into something completely original and useful! You get a huge sense of accomplishment and personally I love keeping everything, I don't throw anything out so saving that moth bitten chair or beloved childhood toy is very satisfying.
So I've found some inspiring idea's that will have you grabbing your tatty things and making them beautiful once again!

This clever idea is my fav, got an old little suit case or vanity case? Turn it into a useful and unique cabinet! Perfect for your makeup, toiletries or jewellery! I'm so making one of these!
Those old dusty jars piling up in your kitchen looking a bit sad? Turn them into useful crafty jars or....

Combine them with some old childhood toys and make quirky arty jars like these! Love it!
Looking for some recycling Christmas ideas? Why not prune that tree outside, clean out your nutella jars and get your glue gun out! For that extra Christmasy touch sprinkle with snow, I mean glitter!

And what about that old tea tray your great aunt left you? Turn it into an adorable vintage magnetic notice board!

And finally, that jumper you got from your nan last Christmas that "got shrunk in the wash" can be reborn into cute mittens for you and your family, depending on the size of your hands!

I hope you feel inspired by this crafty recycling post!
Get crafty!
