3. Wine Corks to Wall Art

Rather than using new wood to create home decor, use salvaged wood. Sustainablog shares several projects that will get you inspired!

8. How To: Pop Top Peace Sign

If you have a pop top collection, recycling them into wall art is the perfect way to put them to use! I turned mine into a peace sign, but you could do another shape as well. The possibilities are endless!

Scarves and handkerchiefs are great for adding personality and character to your home decor. Frame them and you have an awesome piece of art that tells a story!
