Well, we’re on the downward slope of summer now, heading swiftly into autumn. It will be here before we know it, but I can’t say that I’m that upset about it. Even though I love summer with all its sunshine and warmth, my heart belongs to autumn.
It’s one of those seasons that, at least in Pennsylvania, seems to start out so beautiful with the changing leaves and chill in the air…and a week later…all the leaves are gone, the trees are brown and bare and it’s freezing.
So here I am again with another upcycled garland pattern. I just love these so much. I get to make something pretty and upcycle something that might otherwise end up in a landfill. I do recycle religiously, but I’m hoping that by sharing this pattern, other people could help out in the fight against polluting the planet. I realize it’s a small gesture, however, I honestly believe that big things begin with little steps!

I never know what to do with those pesky rings that sometimes pop off my water bottles when I open them. I don’t like to throw them away and if I throw them in our recycling container, they just collect at the bottom and become a mess of stickiness!
Thank goodness our little town has a recycling center because my family goes through a ton of plastic bottles.
So what can you do with those little plastic rings?
Why craft with them of course!
