EARTH DAY: REPURPOSED PIECES FOR YOUR HOME

Wednesday, April 11, 2012


I'm feeling more and more encouraged every day when I see people becoming so actively involved in repurposing, recycling and focusing their energy on sustainable alternatives. I LOVE IT.  

With that in mind, on April 22, over one billion people across the globe will gather together to celebrate Earth Day 2012.  This huge celebration aims to bring together individuals, corporations and governments in order to find lasting sustainable solutions. 

The main focus is to celebrate our Planet and everything on it - with an emphasis on taking care of this magnificent place we call home, so that it will be as bright and beautiful for many generations to come. 

Here are a few adorable ideas for repurposing things you already have laying around taking up space. So save the Planet - CRAFT! 




SPOON PLANT HANGERS

This simple DIY is cheap and easy but can create an exciting new look for any living space. You could apply this concept indoors or out. I can't wait to give this one a try!

If you have no more room to spare in your home for all those amazing vintage pieces, you don't have to feel too bad about putting one or two outside! Just learn a thing or two from 
 Grizzly Bear Modern. You can find the step by step tutorial to recreate this creative planter HERE. 






 Create an adorable day bed using old wooden pallets!

Turn trash into treasure by repurposing old wooden pallets! This stylish DIY day bed can be found over at PrudentBaby. But why stop there? Pallets make great book cases, planters, foot stools and headboards. Just get creative. 






Ten Creative Party Garland Ideas

You can repurpose old sewing scraps, paint sample cards or vintage wall paper. But really, you don't even need to have a party to showcase your adorable, colorful garland! Hang it above your fireplace mantle, on your kitchen counters or above your bed. Who wouldn't want to wake up to that?
