I have happily came across a handful of really great “green” crafts for Spring / Easter time. I’m gonna keep you busy this weekend!

First, Easter Baskets (or just plain cute anytime baskets) made from recycled packaging. Check out this easy tutorial!

Second is an Easter Basket (or again, cute anytime basket, GREAT for gifts) made from paper. Get inventive with your paper choices, and include your kids – it’s easy enough for anyone! Check out this fun tutorial!

Now you can’t have baskets without eggs, right? Learn here how to die Easter Eggs in Nature’s Hues. Send pictures or comment if you try this! Oh, and check out their entire site, it is an awesome resource for vegetable gardening.

Want to make yourself a new vase for your spring flowers? A spot for your spring time candles? Check out how you can turn cardboard into a beautiful vase!

How about picking up some produce from a local stand? Sew your own produce bags to keep your produce fresher, longer. Lessens waste in many ways!

Lastly, there is a great Book Giveaway, Eco Craft: Recycle, Recraft, Restyle. Comment on CraftStylish’s blog, and enter to win! Or, just check out the book.

Last Minute Addition: The Animal Rescue Site is having a one day special, where any shipping is only $1!
