You can put the three Rs to work with these thirty awesome crafts! Using recycled and reusable materials from around the house, school, or a thrift store, you'll find directions for making colorful lanterns from paper and jars, ruffle skirts from t-shirts, scarves and mitts from your favorite old sweaters and socks, and much more. Learn to make bobbles and pom-poms and other easy decorative embellishments. You'll also get a window into how one experienced crafter--Kari Cornell--finds inspiration for her projects. Colorful photographs and step-by-step instructions turn each inspiration into something you'll love wearing or using--and will lead you to new ideas of your own! Ready, set, let's get crafting!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Cornell challenges crafters to play with materials, particularly recycled ones, to create practical art that focuses more on the process than the product. Her introduction is aptly titled, Finding Inspiration, and offers many tips on doing so along with suggestions for where to find supplies, what supplies should be staples of any crafter, and safety tips for working with anything from candles to hammers to power tools. Unfortunately, after that strong start, the book only offers projects that have been seen in many other craft books: origami, tin-can luminaries, decorated t-shirts, felted fingerless gloves, etc. Additionally, while there are many beautiful, glossy photos of finished projects, there are few step-by-step pictures. The numbered directions are clear, but visual learners are likely to get frustrated quickly. Finally, at least one of the projects requires fairly specific supplies, going against the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra. Cornell's light, supportive tone, though, makes readers feel as if any craft is in their grasp. An alternative purchase for larger collections.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2018 Booklist"
