Welcome to the first Earth Day Blog hop I’m hosting! This is a mini hop with just a couple stops each day with different bloggers sharing projects that they’ve made using recycled or upcycled materials. Earth Day is held every year on April 22nd and I remember as a young teen, Earth Day seemed to explode on the scene and my local municipality held many different activities in honour of Earth Day. The last few years though, things seem to have quieted down quite a bit, at least where I live, and the city mainly just hosts a (limited) tree giveaway (but oddly not actually on Earth Day but a week later). (And I mean limited, they give away 1000 trees in a municipality of approximately 230,000 people).
On Friday I will be sharing a round up of 50+ recycling and upcycling crafts which will include all the stops on the hop for this week as well. So if you’re looking to be inspired with ways you can use recycling and upcycling in your sewing or other craft projects be sure to follow along all week and check in again on Friday for even more ideas! Some of the projects will be suitable for children but many are best for older teens and adults.
Today I’m sharing a post I did three years ago. Egg carton flowers! This is an easy craft for kids to do with minimal adult involvement and needs very few supplies. Click the photo below to get to the post.
For more inspiration be sure to check out all the blogs taking part in the Earth Day Blog hop!
