Eco Friendly DIY Projects You Can Do From Home
There are so many DIY projects that you can do at your house, but that makes it a little difficult to decide which ones you should consider tackling first. If you are someone who loves DIY projects and you want to know what you can do at home, with little to no effort all the way to lots of effort, this list is perfect for you. You will see 10 different tasks that you can take on alone, or with a friend, and all of it is eco friendly. So let’s get into the first DIY project on the list.
Clean Out Your Garage
This is a task that you probably weren’t expecting to see, but be honest, you know you need to get it done. Everyone pushes off cleaning out their garage, or attic or basement, for as long as possible. Some people even wait years before considering cleaning it out. If you have time at home and you are looking for something to do with your time, clean up your garage, or whatever room needs it the most. You will not only have extra room in your house, but you will feel nice having done that work that you were pushing off for so long.
While we are talking about cleaning up, why not toss that old junk you have been keeping around. Everyone keeps old memories around, it’s sentimental. But after awhile, it is okay to let some stuff go. You can keep old photos, old books, and notes. But there are some things that you can afford to let go of. If you have not looked at, touched, or thought about something in a few months, go ahead and toss it. This means that this item doesn’t mean as much as you think it does and you can throw it out without missing it. Junk removal Boston is now offering free 30 day rentals for certain dumpsters, so we can help remove the waste.
Turn Old Shirts into Pillow Cases
This is a fun DIY project that does not require a lot of knowledge involving sewing and stitching. You can easily turn shirts into pillow cases by folding them the right way around the pillow. If you have a shirt that you can’t bring yourself to part with, but you don’t wear anymore, you can turn it into a pillowcase so that you get to keep it around without having it take up too much space.
Weed Your Garden
This a great eco friendly project that you can get involved in at home. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can trim up the weeds in your yard, and maybe dig up the roots to a few flowers and start a garden. It doesn’t take a lot to replant something in your lawn somewhere else, just make sure you have the right tools before you start the task.
If you don’t necessarily want to create a garden but still want to fix up your lawn, use whatever clippings and flowers that didn’t make the cut and turn them into a flower crown. You can use the weeds as the string and base of the flower crown, and use the flower stems to tie the flowers to the base of the crown. You might not accomplish this on the first go, but it is a fun project that will keep you busy when you are bored. Junk removal Boston can help you get rid of waste as you create your outdoor creative spaces.
Build a Porch Deck
If you have the materials available in your garage to build something DIY style, a porch deck is a great project. You might want to tackle this one with some friends, but after finishing you will have a great place to rest and relax with fresh air. Decks can require excavating old items or spaces, as well as land, so junk removal Boston is essential in helping you rid your outdoor space of that type of waste.
While on the topic of building things, you can create a pillow fort inside. A lot of people will set up their forts by the outlets in their homes so they can plug in computers, TVs, or game systems, but you can build a fort almost anywhere. As long as you keep things at a cool temperature when electronics are involved, building a pillow fort is a great way to pass the time and when you are done, you have a nice place to sleep for the night.
Depending on how bored you are, how many soda caps you have, and how much time you have, a soda tab purse is definitely the eco friendly DIY project of your dreams. You can find a lot of layouts of this project online, it does require a lot of work and time, but the purse looks nice and you are saving the planet by using this bag instead of throwing the tabs away.
If you have an old pair of shoes that you don’t know what to do with anymore, give them a new look by coloring them in. You can create all sorts of designs and patterns on a white shoe when you have fabric markers and paints. You can design your own shoes and give to friends, or keep them for yourself. Even if you aren’t wearing them anymore, they will make a cute decoration to have in your house and look back on.
Turn Leaves into Flowers
Leaves will fall all year around, but if it is that time of the year where there a big leaves falling off of your trees, take them and use the art of origami to turn them into flowers. The crunchy leaves will not work as well when it comes to folding, but the leaves that are large and easy to fold without them snapping are perfect origami paper. And you don’t have to stop at flowers either, if you are good with origami, you can turn these leaves into almost anything that you want. This project is eco friendly because it doesn’t involve paper, and it is something that anyone with access to leaves can do when they are bored.
