Here is my Project !! I took a 12x12 piece of particle board, and lots of my crafty stash and created this wall hanging to go above my craft desk. (Even used Metal Mesh-Like the kind from a screen)
Please note: Normally I do NOT know the names of all the papers or the other materials I use b/c they are either something I had from years ago, or it's something that has been given to me.

$$Craft Green to Save Green, my friends$$ 
Make it a habit to use what you already have!

Thank you so much for joining us today to celebrate Earth Day. Now, Please Hippity Hop on over to the talented Amanda to see what she has created for your viewing Pleasure!

  1. Hi Tina! I love the idea of using an old piece of particle board! Is that a piece of mesh screening, like for a door? Great idea!
