Earth Day Up Cycles

Hand Knit Rag Rug – by Nemcsok Farms

This upcycle was truly one of the most interesting projects I have taken on so far.  You can create your own also – just find an old bedsheet, and follow along with the tutorial.  

Globe Upcycle – by My Sister’s Suitcase

I have to say, I prefer a globe that looks like a globe.  Now that that is out of the way – this is a great way to decorate a thrift store or garage sale find of a damaged globe.  Plus – the way this one is done, is very earth day appealing.

Bottle Cap Flower – by Crafts by Amanda

How many of us fidget relentlessly with the bottle caps that come off the tops of our beverages?  Doesn’t this piece of garden art just give you total piece of mind?

Owl Craft Project – by Empress of Dirt

A stunning way to upcycle cardboard!  Anything owl-y automatically ranks as a fave around here – add an up cycle to the mix, and I’m totally sold!

Earth Day DIYs

DIY Tooth Brush Holder – by Shaken Together Life

Eliminate the toothbrush pileup that can result from a busy household!  Also, the theme of the toothbrush holder adds a gentle reminder to be mindful of the water waste at the sink!

 

Recycle Bin Labels – by Lia Griffith

Lovely, practical and printable.  A wonderful way to add a little character and a lot of style to your rubbish and recycling bins!

Cottage Chic Herb Garden – by the Gardening Cook

You really can’t go wrong with a DIY herb garden – and this one is cottage chic done in mason jars.  Keep your favourite fresh herbs at the ready, and make Mother Nature proud.

Earth Day Crafts

Globe Garland – by Poppy Talk

Origami projects are always a fun way to craft the day away, and when you can put this super fun earth day spin on it – well I am all for it!

Glass Globe Terrarium – by Stephanie Lynn

Not only perfect for Earth Day – these would also make pretty awesome DIY gifts for pretty much any person, and for any occasion.

Book Page Wreath – by the Gunny Sack

Stop. The. Press. I can not with any level of sincerity and good conscience suggest or support doing this to a book – but I can and wholly suggest doing it with other paper you can recycle – such as newspaper or old magazines.

Unique Flower Planters for Your Yard and Garden

Unique Work Boot Flower Planters to add some whimsy to your yard and garden

You all know I love to Up-cycle stuff, right? My Hand Knit Rag Rug was a huge hit, and a lot of fun! And who could forget our Juice Jug Greenhouses?  Anyway, my very kind and understanding husband also realizes my need to keep stuff, and was very pleased to offer me his old work boots…so I could plant flowers in them. And I did. 

Unique Flower Planters for Your Yard and Garden made from Upcycling Old Workboots

And that got me thinking, what other really unique ideas I could find and share with you for planting flowers…well, check these out:

Unique and Whimsical Flower Planter Ideas

10 Unique Flower Planter Ideas to Liven Up Your Space

 

This Bird Cage Planter – by Crafts by Amanda is really just too pretty.  It would look lovely on any corner of a deck, the center of any harvest table, and would be especially lovely as a hanging planter.

Rain Boot Planter – by A Cultivated Nest is simply adorable, and would make a lovely addition to any front porch!  Great idea for a Grandma and Grandpa gift, if made with little boots.  Talk about cute.

I found some awesome haning planters!  These Bird Feeder Planters – by Petticoat Junktion,  brilliant Fishbowl Planters – by A Beautiful Mess and really clever Rain Gutter Planters – by Restoration Redoux are all really smart up-cycles!  

Garden Glove gives a great tutorial on these eye catching Vertical Cinder Block Planters, and don’t miss out on this how to for a Stenciled Planter Box from Reclaimed Wood – by Saved by Love Creations

Rhuberry Jam – Smooth Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Homemade Rhuberry Jam Preserved rhubarb and strawberries together in this deliciously sweet homemade jam

Some things just go really well together.  Peanut butter and Chocolate, Popcorn and Movies, Beer and Barbecues, and Strawberry and Rhubarb have also proven to be a mouth watering combination as well. 

Homemade Rhuberry Jam Preserved rhubarb and strawberries together in this deliciously sweet homemade jam

Rhuberry Jam

Let’s be clear.  I have a firm belief that sugar belongs in jam, and fat belongs in yogurt. This recipe uses liquid pectin and lots of sugar.  I like it that way and with all things of indulgence, moderation is key. 

And yep – you guessed it, the name Rhuberry Jam comes from the combination of rhubarb, strawberries, three small children, and one frazzled mama.  What can I say?  Sometimes my word box malfunctions, and sometimes the results stick.

Homemade Rhuberry Jam Preserved rhubarb and strawberries together in this deliciously sweet homemade jam

Smooth Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

I have always been a fan of the super sweet Strawberry Jam, but I shun the strawberry lumps.  Just ugh.  What makes this jam my new favourite is the addition of the tart rhubarb, and the pureed strawberries.  That’s right.  I pureed the strawberries.  I can hear the shock and horror.  Jam connoisseurs world wide would be appalled that I didn’t leave those delicious fruit chunks alone.  Well, that’s why this is my recipe and my website.

Wine Cork Garden Markers

DIY Wine Cork Garden Markers for Herb Gardens

Garden Markers made from up-cycled wine cork are more than just cute.  They also help you remember what the heck you were doing.  Inspired by these sweet cork markers I found on Baby Centre I have ventured to make my own version.

DIY Wine Cork Garden Markers for Herb Gardens

Herb Gardens

I am not going to lie.  Herb gardens are decidedly not something I am good at.  So when it comes to planting herb gardens, I need all the help I can get.  Over the years I have gotten fairly decent at identifying sprouts, like tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, beets, onions, etc.  But herbs, no.  What I need is a lot more experience growing herbs, and until then – I’ve got a clever little up-cycle that it gonna help me out

Wine Cork Garden Markers

Another really easy up-cycle, that is not only cute – it’s actually quite useful.  And who doesn’t love a useful craft?  My version of these wine cork garden markers uses a wire hanger instead of doweling or skewers ( you likely already have a wire hanger to spare) and because of that you don’t need a drill either, just push the wire into the cork.  Real people, real living and totally do-able.

Materials:

  • wine corks
  • white wire hanger
  • wire cutters
  • sharpie

DIY Wine Cork Garden Markers for Herb Gardens

Directions:

  1. Unravel the coat hanger, and straighten and if you don’t have a white one, you can paint it.  Just be sure to let it dry very very well before you start handling it
  2. Using the wire cutters, cut the hanger into several lengths, approx 5 – 6 ” long
  3. Push one wine-cork onto the end of one 5″ length of wire
  4. Using the sharpie ( or other permanent marker) label the cork with the type of herb you’ve planted, or hope to plant, or planted a while ago and you forgot about it and it died…
  5. Place each marker next to the right herbs you planted. Be sure to get it right!  I made myself a sketch of where I planted which herb, so that adding the markers wouldn’t cause confusion and delay.

If you liked this up-cycle

You’ll need to make these lovely nature gifts in a jar, and these egg carton daffodils.  For more grown-upy type crafts, check out this awesome rag rug tutorial, or these super easy cotton napkins.  

Also, you can read about my herb garden prowess and get some seed starting ideas here if you’re looking to start your own – which you should totally do!

Hand Knit Cotton Napkins

DIY Cotton Napkin free knitting pattern for eco-friendly living

Cotton Napkins, that you can totally make yourself! Seriously, this project is just loaded with instant gratification. Easy to make, quick to finish, good for our planet, and 100% tailor-able to your colour preference… why not just give yourself that pat on the back right now.

DIY Cotton Napkin free knitting pattern for eco-friendly living

 

Now That I’ve Convinced You

Reusable soft cloth napkins are washable, re-usable and ideal for cleaning sticky little faces and fingers.  They are way better than any paper product, but they are also expensive.  Have no fear, you can totally make your own with scrap fabric, and I highly recommend it,  and there are a couple of ways you can make them without having to worry about tidy mitered corners and so on, and that is a DIY for another day.  Today though, I’m going to show you how to knit  your own cloth napkins.  For real.  

Hand Knit Cotton Napkins

So, yeah, you’re going to need to know how to knit.  But don’t sweat it, I’ve got you covered.  Head over to our How to Knit Series, and grab the tutorial for Casting On, Making a Knit Stitch, and Binding Off as those are the only knitting skills you’ll need for this pattern.  

Notes

This napkin is used with three strands of yarn held together.  This means your project will work up quick, and will be nice and thick – a good quality, sturdy handmade napkin is what you’re after.  You do not need to purchase three balls of yarn.  340gm ball of Key Lime Pie by Bernat  will be enough yarn to complete several napkins.  Just pull out three different strands ( approx 100′ each should do) and use them held together as seen in the photo below.DIY Cotton Napkin free knitting pattern for eco-friendly living made with three strands held together on big needles for a quick and satisfying project

100′ of yarn isn’t actually all that much, and this napkin took me about 20 minutes of knitting time.  I had to take a one hour road trip between rows, but that’s another story for another day.  An easy way to pull out 100 feet of yarn is to find the end of the ball from the centre, and pull out your arm span worth of yarn until you get to approximately the right length.  I am just over 5′ tall so I pulled out my arm span worth 20 times to get 100 feet, cut the yarn and repeated that two more times, giving me three strands, all to the right length.  You can wind these strands together to make a ball, or you can just get knitting!  It won’t take you long.
 

Materials

  • 3 balls or strands of 100% Cotton Yarn in your favourite colours.  I used three strands of key lime pie and see the notes above on how to get three strands from one ball
  • size 10mm Knitting Needles
  • scissors
  • darning needle
     

Direction

  1. Prepare your strands of yarn as described above.  Or just use three balls.  Totally up to you.
  2. Cast On 18 sts
  3. Knit 31 rows
  4. Bind off the stitches, cut yarn, secure the last stitch, and weave in ends.
  5. Make an entire set!

DIY Cotton Napkins free knitting pattern for eco-friendly living

 

Multi Purpose DIY Cotton Napkins

So we already know why we should use these DIY Cotton Napkins instead of the paper ones – and we know how to make them too.  That’s awesome.  Did you also know that you can totally use these for wash clothes, dish clothes, and they make great rags when they start to wear out?  These possibilities are endless.

Join our Knitting Club and be sure to try all the other easy knitting patterns we have here like this I-Cord, this Infinity Scarf and this super awesome Rag Rug and of course, don’t forget to build your Knit Kit .

DIY Nature Gifts in A Jar - the perfect Mohter's Day, Father's Day, Teacher's Appreciation Day, or Any Occasion Gift Made with Upcycled Materials and Things Found in Nature

Project: Recycle & Create.  Take a predetermined recyclable item, and create something fabulous with it.  The recyclable: glass jars.  The something fabulous:   DIY Nature Gifts in a Jar. I can hear the collective ooh-ing an ahh-ing.

These perfect gifts in a jar are made from Upcycled glass jars, fillers that are found in nature, such as beach glass or your favourite rocks, and photos of your favourite things to do outside. Imagine giving ( or receiving these lively treasures for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or even Teacher Appreciation Day! 

About the glass jars. I avoid using mason jars for crafting. Mason jars have a very long life and are perfectly suited for storing and preserving food, and I hesitate to use them for anything else. That said, I am not about to get all judgy on you, for your project, you can use whatever you like.

About the photos. We used our favourite pictures from seed catalogues and lawn and garden supply stores. We ended up with an image of a beautiful cherry blossom,  a garden bench surrounded with potted flowers, and a super fun image of a play structure.

DIY Gifts In A Jar

Materials

  • Glass jars
  • Acrylic paint 
  • Paint brushes
  • Masking tape
  • Nature / Outdoor photos that you love 
  • Filler materials, such as beach glass, rocks, sea shells etc

DIY Nature Gifts in A Jar - the perfect Mohter's Day, Father's Day, Teacher's Appreciation Day, or Any Occasion Gift Made with Upcycled Materials and Things Found in Nature

Directions

  1. Wash jars, remove labels, and dry.
  2. Cover one section with masking tape (this will be the window for your photo)
  3. Paint the entire surface of the jar
  4. Let dry, and then remove masking  tape once dry
  5. Place the photo inside the jar so that the image is visible through the window. Place the image so that the back of the image is against the inside of the jar. 
  6. Add your filler to the bottom of the jar and you’re done!

Beautiful Blue Flowers for Your Yard and Garden

Blue Flowers for Your Garden
I have already shared with you the Prettiest Purple Flowers – and I promised you a post in March with the Best Blue Flowers….

Blue Flowers for Your Garden

 
Beautiful Blue Flowers for your yard and garden.  These are all perennials, and I have grouped them into their bloom season, spring or summer. 

Spring Blue Flowers

Beautiful Blue Columbine

 
The hardy columbine prefers the sun, and are a surprisingly pretty plant.  They bloom in spring and summer, but before they do, they really don’t look like they are going to do anything too exciting.  You can get these in white, pink, red, yellow and purple varieties as well
 

Beautiful Blue Pincushion

 
Another hardy plant, the pincushion can grow very tall, and prefers the sun. These also make very nice cut flowers, and come in a pink, purple or white variety. 
 

Beautiful Blue Primrose

 
This hardy plant blooms in spring and summer, and prefers the sun.  There are many varieties of these plants, with flowers on tall stems, or low laying solitary flowers, and many colours too – like red, orange, pink, purple, white and yellow.
 

Beautiful Blue Anemone

 
These hardy plants can bloom in springer, summer and fall. They prefer a partially shady spot in your garden, and come in white, pink and yellow varieties also.
 

Beautiful Blue Pasque Flower

 
This is a semi-hardy plant, and an early bloomer.  They are usually a shorter plant, and prefer the sun.  They have some really neat leaves and seed heads, which makes them fun to look at, even after the flowers are spent.  These can also be found in a puple, pink or white variety.
 

Beautiful Blue Lungwort

 
A flower that is so pretty shouldn’t have such an ugly name!  Regardless, this hardy plant likes a little to a lot of shade, and has a beautiful foliage as well.  This too can be found in a variety of colours besides blue , such as white, pink and red. 

Summer Blue Flowers

Beautiful Blue Aster

 
The aster enjoys the sun!  It has a very unique stem, and is a hardy plant and can bloom in summer and fall.  You can also find asters in red, white, purple and pink varieties.
 

Beautiful Blue Geranium

 
The hardy geranium is a summer bloomer, that would do best is a bit of shade. They vary from short to tall, and are long flowering.  They can be found in white, red, pink and purple varieties as well.
