Thrifty Thursday: Save (or Re-Use) Excess Art Supplies (& CRAFT!)

Just two days ago, I promised I would tell you what we made with the inside circle of the paper plate from our Paper Plate Spider Web Craft, and here is what we came up with. We made them in to pumpkins using some leftover tissue paper (came in a present) and leftover green construction paper.

The other thing I do is recycle art supplies in to new projects. See all those googly eyes, they are from other project that are no longer hanging up and have gone to the recycling bins. Before recycling our art & craft project (or throwing away when necessary), I try to salvage whatever parts I can that can be reused.

I even store them in old plastic container that was not recyclable.
