It’s been awhile since we have focused on repurposing projects – we have been busy with events and other happenings here at Goodwill. However, I recently spent some time browsing our favorite blogs and found some great summer projects – enjoy and remember to check out Goodwill for your all your craft projects!
Repurposing Old T-Shirts
Crafting a Green World had a great post last week on “Memorable Ways to Repurpose Old T-Shirts.“ No need to get rid of that Nirvana t-shirt – simply turn it into an upcycled pillow or quilt. Not crafty? They even point out some services that will make a t-shirt quilt for you - just send in your t-shirts! You can also make scarves or turn them into wall decor.
Need Kid’s Projects this Summer?
Check out Apron Thrift Girl’s idea to create a thrifed stash basket – she includes rulers, markers, graph paper, shells, candle-making kits, and various odds and ends she found while out thrifting. She also advices looking for sea glass, blocks, drawing paper, rubber stamps, corks, and wool sweaters for felting. Now you have plenty of supplies to keep your little ones busy all summer!
Reusing Old Mason Jars
Though I’m not sure how this is done, I really love these mounted mason jars used as vases – take a close look at picture – if you can’t figure out how to make them, they are available on Etsy at Post Road Vintage’s Shop. Enjoy!
