10 Recycling Craft Blogs to Follow
With such a diverse list, you're sure to find the right recycled craft blog for you here!
Recycling craft blogs are gaining popularity on FaveCrafts.com, and it’s not hard to see why. Our crafty readers love the idea of breathing new life into common household items.
From the recycled crafts with denim and empty egg cartons, all the way to wine bottles and old bicycle wheels (yeah, you read that right), these craft bloggers have been providing us with such unique content to bring to all of you. So, it’s time to show them off!
We've gathered our top ten recycling craft blogs to follow (in no particular order) for crafters who are looking to turn their trash into treasure. These blogs typically offer recycled craft ideas for every skill level. Some of them even offer patterns and tutorials in other areas of crafting, but we love that their crafts using old "junk" are unbelievably pretty and gosh darn useful. With their recycled craft ideas for adults, these bloggers have been breaking down the common misconception that recycled crafts are more suited for children. We have also included their most popular crafts from our site (according to YOU).

10. Unique Creations By Anita
Anita may be one of our newest bloggers to the site, but she is not at all new to the crafting arena. In order to take the pressure out of her learning process in the beginning of her crafting journey she began practicing on old furniture, sanding them down and adding new stain and varnish. She would go on to accept any old furniture which she then stripped down and recycled into her projects. This has now become her “thing”-- to try and build all of her projects using mainly recycled materials. Hope you enjoy browsing her site for unexpected projects as much as I do!
