85 Awesome DIY Recycled Craft Ideas

Is it that time of the year when you’ve finally cleaned up your humble abode from top to bottom? “Phew! It’s done finally”, you say, but then you look around and realize the clutter your spring cleaning has created. All those useless things piled up in front of you! What are you going to do?

Fret not! One of the three ‘R’s you learned back in school is here to help you out. It’s spelled ‘Recycle’ and it solves most of the modern world home cleansing problems. With global warming at an all-time high, it also helps out our dear Mother Earth. Here are the top five ways for you to recycle the old things you discover in your quest to make your house a home.

Plastic Bottles

Plastic waste is one of the biggest contributors to environment pollution. Therefore, instead of throwing that empty bottle of cold drink you could turn it into something useful. You don’t even need a lot of creativity to do that. You could simply cut the bottle in half and use it as a plant pot. Or convert it into a container. If you have a whacky brain then there’s the whole world of recycled items you could create with just a plastic bottle. Think away!

Old Clothes

Another thing that clutters your house, your wardrobe to be more precise, are old clothes that you don’t wear anymore. Perhaps you’ve grown bigger than them, or maybe they’re just out of style. You could easily give them away but what if there were ways to convert your old clothes into something new and practical? Yes, there are! The easiest way to recycle old clothes is to use them for something else. If you have a knack for sewing then you could make plenty of things, from TV covers to small handy bags to another piece of attractive clothing, anything.

Furniture

Is that old table taking up too much space and you want to replace it with a newer, smaller one? Or maybe the wooden cupboard doesn’t go with the rest of your furniture? The good news is you can recycle them too and you don’t have to be a carpenter for that, a positive creative attitude will do. The table could become a personalized chair; the cupboard could become an open book shelf. The possibilities are endless. Take some help if you need to and change how your home looks.

Kitchen Utensils

These things are as easy to recycle, as they are disposed of. They are worth giving a second look, though, as kitchen utensils you no longer need might become beautiful designs your home desperately needs. Your plates could go up on the walls as photo frames, your cups and glasses might become candle holders and mini flower vases, the spoons and forks could be turned into mesmerizing wall art. Don’t be scared to experiment and elegance will follow.

Everything You Can Find Not Useful

Everything in your house that has turned old seems useless, but can be recycled and be given a life anew. As long as you keep thinking of ways to keep using those things instead of throwing them away there will emerge ideas, some will be very unique and will transform your home’s interiors altogether. So, the next time you go on a cleaning spree make sure it’s an adventure worth going to!
