DIY Crafts: Cloth Face Masks

It is easy to make your own cloth face mask. All you need for this project is 100% cotton fabric and either elastic or string to secure the mask to your face. We use a sewing machine to sew the mask in this video but you can hand sew your own mask as well. This design was taken from the New York Times and more information about how to make this mask can be found here:

DIY Crafts: Newspaper Seed Planters

Now that it is spring, it is a perfect time to start a garden and we have created a video to show you how to make a newspaper seed planter. Not only is this a great way to upcycle old newspaper but once your seeds have sprouted, you can put the entire newspaper planter into the ground or transfer it to a larger pot and it will simply decompose as your plant grows through the summer.
