We’re overflowing with excitement from all the green-friendly ideas packed inside the pages of the upcoming August issue of GreenCraft magazine. Guest artist Sandy Hadland shows us how to upcycle t-shirts that became too comfy in her closet into a lovely layered scarf, and mixed-media artist Vesna Taneva-Miller makes use of paper bags by recycling them into quirky placemats and unique gift wraps.
If you’ve found your niche in the recycling realm, we want to give you the opportunity to get your green on. Have you created a unique eco-chic project from materials you already have on hand? We want to see what you can create using household items in your possession!

What’s on the horizon?
Get your watering cans out and get ready to grow even greener. We’ve just received news from our editors about a new section called Green Living sprouting up in future issues of GreenCraft – and we’re sharing the gossip-worthy details with you first! Dedicated to showcase eco-friendly items with a twist, this new section is sure to cultivate your earth-friendly ideas in an even greater way. Instead of focusing on 100% recycled or upcycled items, the Green Living column will spotlight all things that make up a green lifestyle.
