Recycling Craft -Woodland Stationary set

Recycling crafts

This woodland themed stationary set was made with tons of input from my 6 year old daughter.We recycled a plastic medicine bottle,old playdough plastic container newspaper,old toy packaging and foam scraps to make it a recycled craft
Recycling craft
The tree trunk house made with corrugated card  can hold  papers, a long 12 inch scale and various knick knacks.
Recycling crafts
The faux wood penstand was made by gluing newspaper paper rolls onto a plastic medicine bottle which I had cut at a slant.I was inspired by Merry to make the paper roll recycled craft.

The faux tree trunk trough is made from playdough and we added bark lines with a sharp tool.We sized it to hold my daughter's eraser.

My daughter wanted a sign for her woodland house!

The Teddy bear is made from "paper clay" and we fashioned it in such a way that it holds a pencil!

My daughter wanted a girl teddy bear so she is holding a punccraft flower.

The tiny paper mushrooms were made by my daughter..she punched circles and made them into a cone and we stuck newspaper rolls as mushroom stems

These mushrooms were  drawn and colored by my little girl!

We added lots of playdough roses on our house. Here is the link to the clay rose tutorial.

We lined a plastic container with corrugated card to make the mushroom stem.The mushroom head was made on the bottle lid by stitching a circle of felt over sponge.

On removing the mushroom head my daughter can put her sharpener in our mushroom container.

I had terrible computer issues which was making blogging a pain ..finally the computer crashed altogether and I have lost all my photos including all the photos of how we made this recycling project.

Love your creation very much. Especially all the bits where you recycled and also tell your 6 year old that she is a very clever young lady with lots of amazing ideas too.
