Recycled Crafts & Activities Plus Top June Posts from the Frugal Family

Recycled crafts & activities that are low cost, easy and fun! Great ideas for families & kids.

I love recycled crafts & activities. There is nothing better (and more frugal!) than taking something that you would normally throw away and turning it into something new! This week we're featuring some really cool recycled crafts and activities that I think you will love!

This Week's Features

Hen Family gave us 12 Adorable Recycled Crafts. This is an amazing list - I can't pick a favorite!

A Little Pinch of Perfect made a Super Easy DIY Mini Light Table. If you're making a special dessert for July 4 this is a perfect way to reuse a container!

Grace, Grits, and Gardening showed us how to make an Easy Peasy Vintage Hanky Bunting! There are so many possibilities with this idea - it would go great with this tutorial on Kid Made Decorated Handkerchiefs from Craftulate for a super cute kid's activity!
