Recycled Crafts Box

Sock Puppets, Cardboard Castles, Bottle Bugs & 37 More Earth-friendly Projects & Activities You Can Create

Don't toss those old sneakers into the garbage! Fill them with potting soil and transform them into clever, eye-catching planters. Your empty plastic yogurt cups have possibilities, too. With bits of fabric, yarn, and ribbon, they can be transformed into beautiful collectible dolls. Old blue jeans, worn out sweaters, plastic bubble wrap, grocery bags, and empty soda bottles all find new life with these creative projects. Each project features step-by-step illustrated instructions, and a full-color photo of the finished artwork. Plus you'll learn fun facts about rubbish throughout history, where our garbage goes, and read stories of artists who make beautiful things from junk.
