Repurposed Ideas for the Kitchen

Hello, friends! It’s a new month so it’s time for a new topic for our Craft Tips series! 
For February, we are focusing on upcycle/repurposing projects. Each week we will take a look at these types of projects in different areas of the home.

Repurpose and/or upcycle items to use in the kitchen!
This week I am focusing on some really fun upcycle and repurposing projects for the KITCHEN! Some of these are actual kitchen items used in interesting ways, but I also found a few items that have nothing to do with the kitchen and people found a way to find a use for them and incorporate them into their space.

Warm Weather Friendly {GREEN} DIY Projects

Happy Saturday!
Last week my friend Aimee (from byAimee.com) had me over to her online magazine, Fancy Little Things, as a guest. I wanted to share it here in case you missed it, because it was such a fun post. The theme for Fancy Little Things during the month of April is {GREEN} living. I complied an awesome round-up of {GREEN} projects that are warm weather friendly. Check them out! 
{Outdoor Furniture & Decor}
This warmer weather comes more time outdoors. Turn wood pallets into outdoor furniture like HomedIt did. 
The evenings are just beautiful in the southwest right now. Make your own energy efficient outdoor lighting like this DIY Solar Jar at Our Life in a Click.
Here’s another outdoor lighting idea using recycled wine bottles by Design Sponge
{Clothing & Shoes}
Refashion winter clothing into something more suitable for warmer weather like this shirt by Mustard and Sage
Spice up those old flip flips with cute fabric ruffles like these adorable sandals by The Mother Huddle
Upcycle an old tie into a sunglasses case like this one at Family Fun
(Great Father’s Day gift too!)
{Kid-Friendly}
Many families take vacations, have staycations, or go on day trips during the Spring/Summer months. How great is this DVD coloring case (by Handmade by Stacy Vaughn) for the kids when traveling?
I love reading any time of year, but it’s especially nice when you can read outside in the nice weather. Encourage your kids to read by having them make fun bookmarks out of recycled materials around the house! (Plum Pudding)
I’m absolutely in love with these cupboard transformations. What a great way to get kids to do their homework, practice their skills over break, or create fabulous artwork! (iCandy at UCreate)
And why not take all of those old, broken crayons and make new ones! I love these recycled race car crayons by Kinderpendent
So many different ways you can be a little more GREEN

Like it?


Have a great weekend friends! 
See you all next week!
