When it comes to eco-friendly crafts, it doesn’t get more green than a project that incorporates both recycled and natural materials.  This wall hanging from Creative Jewish Mom is just such a project, using a recycled cereal box as a canvas for making prints of leaves.   It’s a great summer project for the kids, and a fun follow-up to a walk in the woods or even just around the block.  You could also use the same idea with scrap wood or plastic from bakery or deli trays to make a version that will work outdoors.  [how to make a leaf print wall hanging]
