After some recycled craft ideas? Of course, you are!
The good news is that today on Moral Fibres I’m featuring one of my very favourite internet ladies, Mel Wiggins. Mel will show you one of her fantastic recycled craft ideas – a DIY statement necklace made out of spare buttons and felt scraps.
Let’s Get Crafty With This Recycled Craft Idea!
Done in just fifteen minutes, this project is the perfect recycled craft idea for anyone lacking in patience for long-winded crafty projects. And the very best thing is that it’s so easy that even a crafting novice like me can easily complete it!
If you’re looking for some recycled craft ideas for kids then this would also be the perfect project. Now that the summer holidays are in full swing then if you’ve got bored kids on your hand just hand them some buttons, felt, scissors, and glue (with supervision of course!).
You Will Need:
A scrap of felt
Length of ribbon
Place your buttons on the felt and arrange them in the shape you like.
Glue the buttons onto the felt with the hot glue gun and then cut around the shape.
Cut two bits of ribbon to your desired length (the longer the better). Next hot glue them to either side of the back of the felt.
Now admire the finished product!
Leave the glue to dry, then ta-da! A boutique-looking piece made for just pennies from recycled materials!
I don’t know about you but I’m off to give this a go! And if you’ve got any favourite recycled craft ideas then do share in the comments below!
