Are you looking for craft projects to fill the summer months? Do you love rescuing discarded items from the trash or recycling bin and creating useful artwork with them? Look no further than this book! Chock full of twelve project ideas ranging from a ketchup-bottle piggybank to a stool made of old magazines, this book is a sure winner with kids and adults alike. While the pink and purple cover may seem feminine, the projects themselves will appeal to any artistically minded or environmentally conscious reader.

Lively, step-by-step photographs accompany easy-to-follow instructions. The author has included plenty of great suggestions for modifications and optional add-ons. Materials are easy to find, and reusing the bottles, boxes and bags that would otherwise be trashed or recycled will give readers a fun way to be kind to the environment. Interesting Ecofacts throughout the book educate and inspire; readers learn about the environment while taking steps to impact it in a positive way!

My personal favorite is the photo display cube made of CD cases, which I was shocked to find out cannot be recycled! A bunch of friends came over with their photos and old cases for a craft night; we had a blast and saved some space in a landfill! Best of all, we made a practical product. After seeing the other projects I had made from the book, my friends were anxious to get their own copies. Many of them intend to give it as a gift to young crafters in their lives, while others will simply enjoy creating and conserving. Happy crafting!

DREAM BEDROOM is another great book in the ECOCRAFTS series, designed to give those interested in creating useful objects a way to make the Earth a better place by recycling. Besides the helpful hints included throughout the book (such as looking for used toys or swapping "old" toys for "new" ones with friends), the book includes several activities to get those creative juices flowing.

Although the crafts listed in the book are designed to be used to enhance your dream bedroom, several items can be used in numerous places throughout the house, or even given as gifts. Included in the book are: a piggy bank, a file holder, jewelry stand, space station, treasure chest, desk organizer, photo frame, cactus, a door hanger, a flag, wall organizer, and a stool or footrest.

This is the perfect book for artists and creators of any age, from young children working with adult supervision to adults looking for a fun and eco-friendly new hobby. My ten-year-old son has already started working on the treasure chest, and my six-year-old daughter can't wait to make the stool and jewelry stand.

If you enjoy this book, I highly recommend pairing it up with another ECOCRAFTS book, Gorgeous Gifts: Use recycled materials to make cool crafts (Ecocrafts).

You know what they say! One man's trash is another man's treasure! That can be true when you use these craft ideas to decorate your bedroom! The crafts use items that other wise might be thrown away like plastic bottles and cd cases!

Most craft books tend to have lots of ideas for girls, this one included crafts for other genders.

Yes Lots of fresh ideas are included in this book!
