Recycling plastic into crafts is a fun and eco-friendly alternative to tossing said plastic into the trashcan. Peaches from Aunt Peaches made this fun melted plastic statement necklace with #6 plastic party cups she melted Shrinky-Dink style in her oven. I think it looks kind of like sea glass! These melted plastic pieces would also be pretty on earrings, or connected together like links. [how to make a recycled plastic necklace] [via oneprettything]

This necklace is beautiful. So simple, yet elegant looking.
By the way, I love your site with all the cool things you create using Dollar Store stuff. I’ve added your site to my “Green Frugalicious Sites” on my blog: ART of Humungous Proportions. I hope you’ll visit my blog to take a peek!
Hey Heather! Thanks for the shout out on this! Just love seeing my little necklace up on one of my favorite sites :)
This one blew my tiny mind when I saw it on her site. It is fab!
wow, what an incredible necklace. It’s even more incredible that it’s made from plastic cups. Instead of plastic, it actually looks like stained glass.
