Easter Recycling Projects

Posted on March 21, 2016 at 10:30 AM

Easter is almost here so I'm throwing out some DIY projects that caught my eye this week. There are literally thousands of ideas online so if none of these tickle your fancy, head out to the Internet and you won't be disappointed - but you just may be waylaid because of the sheer volume!

Stuffed Paper Bag Rabbits

Joanka at Joanka-Z describes herself as a good craftsman who wants to change the world using her hands and a sewing machine. And in this project she certainly succeeds. She shows us how to make a bunny from a paper bag! Now you have a way of upcycling all those grocery bags you’ve been hoarding! There’s even a template for you to copy.

Instructions are in Polish and you will need a sewing machine but otherwise, an easy, peasy project. Click here to make your own. 

Egg Carton Wreath

Rebecca over at her beautiful blog, Sinnern Rausch, loves anything handmade and finding treasures at flea markets. Her egg carton wreath is as elegant as anything you'll find at expensive floral or decorating shops. And is fairly easy to make. You'll need a few egg cartons but if you are like me, you're sure to have an assortment in your recycling bin. 

This blog is in German but the instructions are easy to follow from the excellent photos. Click here to make your own.

Recycled Eggshell Mobile

This mobile idea is a wonderful way to use up those eggs we crack in the morning when making breakfast. Now you can put them to use to amuse the kids and maybe decorate above your Easter table. Angie has loads of great ideas on her blog, Little Inspiration.

It's a brilliant idea and I plan to copy it with my own interpretation - brown eggshells. Her instructions for this mobile are easy to follow - now I just have to find a branch and some plastic toys. To find out how you can recreate this mobile, click here.

Buona Pasqua!
