Written by editor Nicole Bennett of Gidget Goes Home.
Happy Earth Day, everyone!
Over the last few years, we’ve had some amazing contributors on board, in addition to our editorial team, who have come up with creative ways to repurpose things into new creations, rather than simply tossing them in the trash.
Today as we celebrate the good planet we call home and take a minute to think about taking care of it, let’s revisit some of the great crafty posts we’ve had over the years here on Simple Homemade that repurpose materials into new things or use otherwise eco-friendly supplies.
