I tried knitting and just couldn’t get it so I have a feeling it will be the same with crocheting. If I could crochet and was semi decent at it, I think I would definitely try making one of the adorable little guys in this book:

‘Tis the giving season! Want to go green with your gifting this year? Think about getting crafty and making gifts by recycling old stuff!

I found several seemingly easy projects at makingfriends.com. Some of my faves include:

  • No sew winter hat – Made from an old sweatshirt. I love winter hats so this was one of my favorites!
  • Recycled calendar envelopes – The perfect way to reuse the outgoing year’s calendar. I’d LOVE to get a letter in one of these!
  • Floppy disk photo cube – Because who really uses disks anymore? Since floppy disks aren’t really floppy, these little guys will even stand up on their own!

Got recycled craft ideas of your own? Leave us a comment and tell us all about it

I am such a fan of this idea, I’m trolling the web for more so stay tuned!
