This is a great idea! I wasn't aware of some of the things that you could recycle into such pretty things. So I can help the environment by cutting down on waste and name pretty gifts for myself and others at the same time! Thank you for sharing such a great inspiration!

This is such a great guide with so many clever ideas! I never would have thought to make jewelry from egg shells, or recycled aluminum cans! I love finding new ways to use common everyday items! The braided scarf necklace is a clever way to use up too many, outdated, or worn out scarves! And anything using sea shells has got to turn out great! Thanks for a great collection!
