Recycle baby treat container

20120704-121739.jpg

This idea is great for recycling baby food containers!

Turn the containers into a fun bowling game for your little ones.

Start by peeling off the labels.

Then simply add stickers or draw numbers on the containers.

Have fun!

Recycling Table

This is one of my favorite projects that Mom did awhile ago. It’s a cool addition to the room, everyone always comments on the table!

  • She sanded down an old table
  • Freshly painted the legs
  • Tore pages out of an old fairy tale book
  • Put Mod Podge all over the table
  • Put the pages on the table
  • Put Mod Podge all over the tops of the pages using a foam brush

You could buy a cheap old flea market table and turn it into a piece of art!

This is a great idea for recycling. Give it a try! 🙂

Recycled Book/Paper Folding

Was that book nothing like you thought it was going to be? Disappointed with the sequel? Consider turning your books into art!

I’ve found that my mom can recycle anything!

Instead of just having a bookshelf full of regular books add a few patterned books in between to spice it up! It’s a great way to incorporate art on your bookshelf.

There are lots of different folding options and many You Tube tutorials to help!

My favorite is the one she did that says READ… I think it’s super cute and looks great on the bookshelf!

Mom bought the basic tutorial to get started from http://rhymeswithmagicart.blogspot.com/ they also have some free patterns to choose from on that site as well!

There are some really cool ideas on this site as well… http://www.flickr.com/photos/bookofart/
