Earth Day DIYs from nature

I'm a day late, but as readers of this blog are aware, every day is Earth Day at Bromeliad.
If you're in the market for an upcycled DIY, check out my DIY gallery, which is 90 percent stuff made from other stuff.

Today's roundup is a special kind of reuse - DIYs that come straight from the ground. In other words, the main ingredient is sticks, rocks, branches, bark - the free craft supplies of the great outdoors.

Painted stone statement rings from Alisa Burke.
Twig necklace from Plan B.
Gold twig bangles from A Pair and a Spare.
Ring from a rock from Creme de la Craft.
Birch bark lamps from Ruffled.
Driftwood orb at Creative in Chicago.
Painted stone ring at The Perfect Pear.
Stone pendants from Bromeliad.
Gold leaves on a backyard branch from Family Chic.
Twig wrap bracelet from Popsicles and Pinatas.


  1. Love this roundup! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I've always liked the projects that incorporate bark; but it's important to remember that when sourcing birch bark for a project, the bark HAS to have fallen off the tree otherwise the birch is harmed. Just a thought for Earth Day!

      Good to know - we have no birch or bark in Brooklyn.
