Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Recycle: Craft ideas from BHG ...

Half-Globe Centerpiece / Kitchen Tool Recipe Holders

These are just two of many fun recycling ideas from good old Better Homes and Gardens.  I really love old globes  but there are only so many that you can display "as is" without becoming a hoarder.  So I think this is a great idea: using a handsaw, carefully cut a globe in half, then set each half on a footed cup and fill as desired.  I can imagine painting the inside a fun contrasting color too.


Thrift and "Antique" stores always have heaps of old kitchen utensils.  And again, they're appealing but I cannot justify buying them for "display" only - they need to be useful for something!  So I really like the idea of keeping recipes handy with a holder made from an old potato masher or meat tenderizer (because really - who tenderizes meat???). Simply attach a clothespin or metal clip to the handle with epoxy.
