Let's all make recycled crafts. Not only is recycling good for the environment, it can help save you money; and, with the craft projects presented here, you can find out how to recycle creatively. Using the ideas presented here, you can transform baby food jars, paper bags, orphaned socks, and several other items into crafty masterpieces.

Make sure any items you recycle into crafts are clean and dry - most can be washed in hot soapy water. You should also make sure there are no sharp edges or small parts which may pose a choking hazard for younger kids. Simply make sure you use common sense before you use your imagination.

Please enjoy this ever-growing list of great ideas for crafting green (recycling items you might normally throw away to create great craft projects, games, and more). Click on the desired item below to find a collection of great craft ideas.

If you are interested in learning even more creative ways you can recycle, sign up for my fun and educational weekly Creative Recycling newsletter. Each week, you will receive a special newsletter featuring craft projects, activities, and tips for recycling specific items. You will, in total, receive 15 informative issues which will hopefully help and encourage you to do more with your garbage than just throw it away.

Finally, I have a couple of recycling craft collections you can explore. If you are hoping to add a few new craft books to your book shelf, I have a list of Creative Recycling Books to help get you started. I have also compiled a list of the current Top Creative Recycling Projects on my site. This list will change as more crafts are added. If you have a favorite craft, take a moment to submit it and maybe it will make the top list.

If you want to be one of the first to know when new craft projects are posted, take a few moments to sign up for the Family Crafts Newsletter and you can also chat about recycling crafts with others in the Family Crafts Forum.
