Upcycled Dry Erase Calendar

This is such a cute idea that came from a blogger in Canada.

I happened to see it on the twitter feed from 4-H Ontario. (Yes, I’m very excited that Canada has 4-H!)

This is great! Check out the directions here!

Upcycling Glass Bottles

Every wondered what you could do with those old Snapple bottles?

Well here is one idea. You could use them as plant pots.

Be sure to drill a hole in the bottom for drainage.

This is an Aloe water bottle I used for one of my Aloe plants.

You could take it even further and take off the wrapper and decorate the bottle with anything you want before you plant it!

Newspaper Baskets

This post also comes to us from our wonderful 4-H Leader, Jacky, and her daughter, Anna.  (Thanks!)

These Newspaper baskets are a great way to reuse some of that old newspaper most of us have laying around the house.  It saves money in recycling costs, and it saves money in buying storage containers.  You can alter the pattern to fit your needs and tastes.  As you can see, one of them was made with something other than newspaper, make this project your own!

The pattern is from a separate website, but Jacky has made a few notes on here to make things easier. The pattern for Newspaper Baskets is here.

I hope to see a lot of these at the Fair!

Enjoy!
