The Best Recycled Craft Projects

Turn trash into treasure with our best recycled craft projects!

You don't need expensive supplies or special know-how to make these free paper crafts. In fact, everything on this page was made with paper products found lying around our house. A brown paper bag, some newspapers, old wrapping paper, and old cereal box were the basis for some of these projects. Check out some of our favorites!

These Recycled Craft Projects Will Spark Your Kids' Creativity

Sometimes you've got to look at the world through a child's eyes. A plastic Coke bottle can become a colorful flower bouquet, while that plastic bag...well it can take flight as a pretty butterfly or become a "slimy" rattlesnake.

One-liter milk cartons make for some great bookends or a row of houses. And once again, a plastic bag can become a spooky ghost. Seriously, the sky's the limit when it comes to recycled crafts.
