Creating recycled plastic lid crafts for Christmas is a lot of fun, and it is an eco-friendly activity. These crafts are inexpensive and easy; they are also fun for kids. This article will provide you with a supply list, detailed instructions and tips and tricks for creating recycled plastic lid crafts for Christmas.
A great way to recycle your plastic lids is by making a star garland for Christmas. For this craft you will need many plastic lids, ribbon, paint, a paintbrush, a hole puncher and clear coat spray. You can use lids of varying sizes and colors – so have fun deciding what lids to recycle.
Start by punching a hole in every lid. Then use the paint and brush to paint stars onto each individual lid. You can also paint letters on each lid or other fun Christmas images. Then lay your lids out in the right order. Spray the lids with the clear coat. Cut a piece of ribbon 1 and a half times as long as the line of lids. String each lid on the ribbon and tie a knot to keep the lids separated evenly. This Christmas craft is a great decoration that uses recycled materials.
Another fun Christmas craft that uses recycled plastic lids is a ball ornament. For this craft you will need glitter, glue, ribbon, scissors, and two plastic lids. Start by cutting a slit into a lid. Remember to cut the slit evenly almost all the way into the lid. Then apply glue to the slit and push it onto another lid. Push the lid onto the other lid and allow the glue to dry.
Then wrap ribbon around the edge of each lid and add glue to secure it in place. Tie both ends of the ribbon together. Then skip about an inch and tie the ends of the ribbon into another knot. This will create a loop to hang the ornament from. Decorate the lids with glitter and glue. Hang the ornament to allow all of the glitter to dry at the same time. This simple craft is great because it uses recycled plastic lids.
Using recycled plastic lids for crafts is a great way to recycle and have fun. These Christmas crafts will look great around your home during the holidays. Everyone will love these recycled plastic lid crafts, and they are inexpensive enough to make several of them for your home.
