Fun home décor DIY projects to help you reuse/recycle the goods around your house!

Recycling doesn't always have to be so mundane. Let your creative side shine by dabbling in these fun creative ways to reuse the things around your house so your recyclables don’t end up in the trash!


BONUS: if you get your kids involved, it’s a great moment to teach them about being environmentally conscious!


  1. Re-use those jars lying around the house

Grab some paint and coat your jars in hues that will really make them pop! You can spice them up with any flower of your choice to really show your personality. These newly decorated jars would also be useful in storing any office materials and make a cute addition to your desk.


  1. Don’t throw those lids away

Just as you’re getting crafty with your jars, you can also use that same energy into recycling those lids into fun coasters. You can be as simple as you’d like and go for a rustic feel using the lids as they are or you can choose to be just as creative as you were with your jars and add designs that really speak to you!


  1. Re-vamp old and used jewelry

Time and time again we have single earrings missing their matching pair. With just a hot glue gun and a magnet you can spruce up your office or kitchen with these new and unique magnets.


  1. Give that old-school globe new life

With just a few tweaks to an old globe you have lying around, you could have a unique lamp that adds an eccentric touch to your home. Here is a link on how to do this yourself - https://www.thebravelife.co/blog/2014/07/diy-globe-hanging-light.html.



  1. New ways to use those burnt out bulbs

Don’t throw out those seemingly useless burnt out bulbs. With just some twine and some flowers, you could have your very own hanging lightbulb garden. These lightbulbs create the perfect vase for even the most delicate flower. Great for brightening your home both indoors and outdoors.
