DIY Advent 17: Beautiful Recycling – Barcelets from Plastic Bottles DIY - Outfits, Shoes & Accessories DanaBearing in mind that we should take a day at least 3 liters of fluid to us, a single human requires whole 730 1.5 liter bottles of water per year. The plastic bottles end up in the waste container and get melted under an enormous environmental impact, only to get very poor quality plastic. But with a little imagination you could tinker around 3,650 bracelets (5 pieces per bottle!) from this garbage. That would be so many bracelets that you could wear the next 10 years every day a new one! It would also save a lot of money and relieve the environment significantly.
Today I made this shabby chic bangle bracelet.
We are jujuB !
Finding some $2 wooden bangles in a craft shop this morning, I thought I would have a go transforming them into something more interesting and original.
This is the project that won runner-up in The Color my Summer Contest.
So I posted my What I Wore Wednesday post yesterday and showed off this awesome (ifIdosaysomyself:) Rosette Bracelet I made to wear to a baby shower. And the crowd went WILD ... all 7 of you! lol ;) So I worked real hard today to get a tutorial up for ya'll!
You have to do this project.
A couple of weeks ago I promised that even though I was going to bring more focus to my sewing projects that I'd still share crafting projects with you.
Yesterday I revealed some of the Library makeover.
I am starting the New Year with a new crafty project I am excited to share.

I keep seeing fabric flowers EVERYWHERE- clothing, jewelry and crafts- so to kick off spring I decided to make my own fabric flowers out of recycled materials and turn them into a pretty wreath for the door. These flowers are super easy to make and can be used in a multitude of projects!
It's chilly outside here today and I'm loving it!

Almost two years ago, I bookmarked a wonderful tutorial from Design Sponge for a cork lamp.
