Fall Craft Ideas Using Recycled Materials

With the kids back in school, now is a good time to get back into some decorative craft projects.  The first place to start is with your Fall decor.  However, instead of spending a lot of money in seasonal decorating, I am going to show you how you can incorporate recycled materials into your projects for a much more budget and eco friendly option.

All of the Fall craft ideas, that I have found, use at least one item that has been recycled.  Last year, I made the pictured sweater pumpkin out of one of my husband’s old and worn sweaters which gave a warm neutral look to a common Fall item.  Plus, I didn’t have to throw out a sweater that was stretched out and too worn for charity.

Here is the list of other Fall craft ideas that you can try:
