Craft Rehab is the craft category here at Birdz of a Feather to help you ‘get your craft mojo on’! Need some fresh craft decor ideas? We’re always up to something crafty at Birdz of a Feather. We also have some unique trash to treasure ideas for you to try. And there are no shortage of upcycle ideas. Because of that, most are budget friendly too!
We believe that ‘Good Planets are Hard to Find’! Whether vintage, thrift or curbside finds, Craft Rehab will inspire you to transform any found object to keep it out of landfill. Turn a phone booth into a planter. Transform a computer hard drive into a clock. Look to your recycling bin to make a SwingOut Catchall from tuna cans.
Browse ideas for our upcycling take from Christmas to Valentines Day. You may be so inspired with our gift ideas, that you’ll want to make one for yourself while you’re at it. Hop to it with our Easter Bunny wreaths. Then continue the fun into Halloween and beyond. Follow along with our tutorials and videos to make something special.
This tape art portrait will help you get your craft mojo on if you’re in a creative slump!
