These handmade snack bags used to be part of my line when I was selling my crafts, and they’re perfect for packing dry snacks without the wasteful plastic. Here’s how to make a snack bag of your very own!
Can you tell that I’m obsessed with succulents yet? They’re such a simple way to add a little green to your space, they require very little maintenance, and they can live with indirect light, which makes them great house plants!
This tin can succulent planter was super easy to make, and I included more detailed directions at the bottom, in case you need them.
I love getting crafty with burlap, so when the folks at BurlapFabric.com offered to send me a box of burlap to play with, I couldn’t say no! They sent me a big box with a roll of new burlap, a few repurposed burlap coffee bags (a green coffee bean even fell out of one!), and a roll of jute webbing, which I was particularly excited about.
I’ve been looking for an eco-friendly alternative to polyester or cotton webbing for ages! The webbing they sent was very wide – 3 1/2″ – but it was easy as pie to make that work for the bag I wanted to make. You can see how, along with all the instructions for making a beach tote from a coffee sack, below!
In case you don’t follow Crafting a Green World or Green Upgrader, I’ve been posting some tutorials in both of those spaces, and I thought I’d share them here, too! The image at the top here is how to turn disposable coasters into forever coasters.
