Recycling for Earth Day.. Paper Towel wreath

I’ve been really enjoying Made by Nichole (in fact, I linked to her today at Foodwhirl, too.. go see!)– and I think I already linked to this on Twitter or Facebook, but I wanted to share it here…

You’d never believe these gorgeous spring flowers were made from paper towels.  Particularly paper towels that were used to clean up from another craft project!  Love this idea of truly turning trash into treasure!

(See the project that spawned the paper towels, a cool homemade paper, here.)

Speaking of cool recycling ideas… – check out the tutorial from last year  by So She Sews on how to make your own fabric out of fused plastic bags!  Tutorial here.
