This list of ‘101 Top Free and Green Craft Tutorials’ has inspired many of my current (or planned) WIP craft projects. I will promise not to show too much Amy Butler fabric, as that’s kind of cheating: everything looks fantastic in her fabric. (Even mundane little string bags….. It’s kind of like she’s doing the craft for us. ) No, instead, I’ll really, really try to recycle.
Many of the free craft tutorials can be made with recycled materials. Often tutorials imply the use of new materials, but they would often look just as good, if not better, when using recyclables. Many of the projects here could be created using recyclable materials, sometimes easily, sometimes not. The ‘U’-marks in the craft tutorial list below indicate that these tutorials are written with ‘upcycling, refashioning & recycling used materials’ in mind. The other craft projects here could be made using recycled materials, if you so wish.
Green Craft Inspiration
If I can inspire you to recycle while crafting, I’ll be really happy.
