This past week I presented at the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, PA. Each year, one of my favorite things to do is meet up with the kids attending the fair. I love to get kids excited about art and put on a workshop just for them. This past year we did bookmarks and this year I decided to inspire the kids’ creativity with paper chicken friends.
I tend to keep things that most people would consider junk or recyclable. You never know when you can upcycle items into beautiful crafting creations. Some of my favorite items to keep are the glass jars and their lids from foods. Salsa jars are perfect! I remove the labels, wash them in the dishwasher, and set them aside for crafting projects, like these upcycled spring terrariums.
