If this is your first time to the site, welcome! Navigation is easy; to the left, you'll find links to the pages with projects on them. Inside each section is a listing of that type of material, usually sorted by typical types of the material. Links for the different crafts will be an assortment of videos, tutorials, video tutorials, and sometimes pages to purchasable items to inspire the crafter to make something similar.
I first began collecting links and resources for recycled crafts in 2010. I myself am an avid crafter, and drawn to recycling and being 'green' all my life, always had a mind to figure out how to craft something 'discardable' into something new, as well as find a recyclable alternative to store-bought products.
I had been to Craftster and had seen many inspiring recycled crafts on there, and their 'What do I make with this' forum was a partial inspiration to this site. Now, I try to list things that would normally be thrown away--and as many things as you can make with them. The inventive ingenuity of many crafters has surprised and delighted me, and I hope you'll feel the same spark of creativity when browsing!
Apologies in advance for videos with foreign languages. I believe the instructions are easy enough to follow.. I just went with the ideas to bring more ingenuity!
If you have any problems with any of the links, find errors on any of the pages, or have any suggestions for crafts you'd like to see added to this site, send me a message and let me know!
