It’s Earth Day on the 22nd, so I’ve compiled a few crafts and DIYs that are inspired by our natural world or that offer ways for us to upcycle or recycle household items.
If you prefer the real flowers to stay outside, then how about embroidering some to display on the wall. Love Crafts have a guide with 5 simple ways to embroider flowers and they also have some free patterns to download.
This DIY desktop organiser from Crafting Cheerfully is decorative, useful and most of it is recycled. If you have as much stationery as I do, then you know an organiser is the MOST useful thing.
I love these tiled planters from Pillarbox Blue. This could definitely be a great way to recycle old or leftover tiles from a renovation project and a way to recycle plastic bottles instead of buying new plastic plant pots.
Handmade cards are so gratefully received and I think these bubble paint flower designs from A Piece of Rainbow are so perfect for spring and summer. If anyone you know has a birthday coming up then you could try this out, or even use the effect to create your own wrapping paper.
If you’re lucky enough to have a garden with beautiful spring blooms then this wreath making guide from Real Flowers could help you with an alternative display instead of having them in a vase. If you prefer your flowers to stay planted, or don’t have your own garden, then perhaps you could use a wreath to display some fresh greenery instead. They’re not just for Christmas!
