Reuse! Repurpose! Recycle! Upcycle Ideas!

Here it’s all about eco-friendly, recycled, upcycled, repurposed DIY crafts. It’s good for the environment and at the same time, puts some green back into your wallet.

As a thrifty crafter, one of my favorite, quickest and easiest source of free craft materials suitable for kids crafts as well as adult-oriented projects happens to be right at my fingertips.

Let our Trash to Treasure Craft department show you how to upcycle stuff around the house or heading for the garbage bin and turn them in fantastic crafts – turning trash into treasure. The Trash-to-Treasure Crafts departments motto is to Reuse! Repurpose! Recycle! Upcycle! Give it a try and take a look around.
