Recycled Crafts and DIY from Italy
It’s always exciting to find a new crafter and blogger, I was so excited when I discovered Giorgia and her wonderful blog choc FULL of recycled style! Linfa Creativa. Giorgia specialises in recycling plastic (bottles and the like) and using materials that most of us have easy access too, to create the most wonderful decorative pieces!

This was a recycled bottle with some washi tape! Doesn’t it look fabulous?! I might have to attempt to create one of these hanging garlands myself. Recycled crafts are my favourite.
Giorgia did a great job at creating some beaded necklaces and washi tape tags to go with them! I’m not sure if they were for a market but they look fabulous.
I really love the colours and I love those little wire stars! They’re like little fairy wands ^_^
This little caravan is actually a Nutella lid, some bottle tops and washi tape! It’s convincing right?! If only nutella wasn’t emblazoned on the plastic lid. I still think it would be gorgeous hanging in someone’s caravan. It’s too cute!
This is a big giant star shape made from recycled bottles. I have always, always struggled with cutting plastic bottles. Anytime I did cut plastic bottles, there would always be little straggly pieces. I’m really impressed with everything Giorgia does!
This ring, is absolutely adorable! I’m not sure what materials were used to make it but I can’t imagine it being a very difficult craft. The results from a little bit of work can be incredible. And stylish ;)!
Those flowers are beautiful! I also really like all of the washi tape in this picture and the colour of those marker pens! One thing I noticed while I was spending time on Giorgia’s blog, was that she collected lots of plastic materials (obviously) but I was struck by the array of colours! She has bottle tops/lids in all the colours you could imagine.
I didn’t realise you could get so many! Are they all from flavoured drinks etc? That purple one must be from something enormous if that milk bottle vase fits in it, just small that a roll of washi tape. Must be a european thing. (I do realise I’m in the EU but they get loads of things we don’t).
My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw this picture! Giorgia has taken some workshops in Italy! How exciting is that ^_^
I would love to visit a washi tape stationery workshop! It looks like so much fun.
This leaf looks fabulous. What a great idea for autumn time! I’m sure you could varnish it to keep it lovely.
This is made out of bottle tops! Giorgia is fabulous, go visit!
