If you’re into home design, you know that DIY projects are a popular choice for creating home decor that’s beautiful and unique. However, while DIY projects are satisfying, it can be hard to find one that’s fun and simple.

I have been in a penpal group already for almost two years and this has been a great opportunity for me to put my upcycling into action (and use up all the material I’ve been not throwing away from the times before we adopted a zero waste lifestyle, or at least we have tried to). So, in this post I’ll show you the cards I made for my snail mail, as simple as they may look, they were all made with ecogreenlove. Also, I have included some cute Etsy ideas at the end.
Have you thought about how energy inefficient your garage is? Most worry about keeping their home warm and comfy during the cold season, however, they fail to realize that their garage sucks out a lot of energy from their home.
This week I’ve been in a crafty mood. I made my own recycled paper (more like cardboard 😂) to send some Christmas handmade cards for my penpals and friends reusing scraps from materials I had (below each photo I leave you the link to where I got the idea from with the tutorial). I’m not the great crafter, but I like how rustic these cards look thanks to the materials I used (and my clumsiness 😛 ). Also, they are easy and may be a fun activity to make with kids.
