Love all the ideas! Got some great ideas for Easter recycling projects for my girls. We are having a “recycled Easter” this year and we are making all the decorations from materials ad old decorations we all ready have at home. We are going to reuse, renew, re-purpose, etc. and every good idea is welcome to our plan. Thanks for the inspiration!
