Hi there, Anne-Marie of Handmade by Amo'r here with this month's Getting to Know You Treasury.
|Welcome Wallhanging by Heckety Beckety|
This is where the Crafty Ireland Team gets to meet and greet another Etsy team in a 50-50 cross-team treasury. The idea is to introduce ourselves and mutually promote both teams. Please give a hearty Irish welcome to this month's guests, The Era of Recycling Team.
Etsy is awash with glorious green treasuries this time of year in the run up to St Patrick's Day. Thank you Etsy people around the globe for acknowledging our tiny green isle!! I thought I'd go green in a different way and sought out a team that believed in recycling, upcycling, being Eco-friendly and using sustainable materials.
The Crafty Ireland Team says HELLO to The Era of Recycling Team. Let's go Green in a different way for St Patrick's Day
And continuing with the theme, here are a couple of super simple ideas for recycling or re-using in the home. No skills required!
Candle holder made with re-purposed souffle packaging (glass ramekin) and tiny pieces of frosted sea glass. (more info here, on my own blog if required)
Don't discard those laddered stockings and tights! Cut the 'foot' off and cover the end of your broom for an amazing cobweb and animal hair duster. An old sock will work ok too, but the static electricity of the nylon really draws fluff, dust and dander like a magnet. And it's more Eco-friendly than plugging in your vacuum cleaner every time!
