Earth Day is April 22, 2013!   This year’s theme is “face of climate change”.  We know that recycling has had a positive effect on our environment.  Repairing, reusing, and recycling are some of the main reasons consumers are stuck on Super Glue Corporation products!  Over the years we’ve blogged about many different types of recycling projects …. Here’s a recap of just a few of our favorites:

BUILDING A MINI HOVERCRAFT using old cds, bottle caps, balloons and super glue ** FUN **

BIRDFEEDERS made from old cd cases, and super glue ** CREATIVE **

DECORATIVE SWITCHPLATE COVERS reusing old neckties and contact cement to decorate plain switchplate covers ** FASHION FORWARD IDEAS FOR YOUR HOME **

VASES polymer clay flowers attached to old glass jars using super glue and paint ** WOW **

EASTER EGG ANEMOMETER (instrument for measuring wind force and speed) you’ll have to see this one to believe it .. just click the link 😉 ** SPRING & SCIENCE **

This is just about the most exquisite idea we’ve ever seen and just in time for Mother’s Day (and Earth Day, too)!  This Do-It-Yourself idea came directly from the BusyMommy blog we recently ran across.  The blog entry, written by Emily, refers to the vases as “upcycled polymer flower vases”.   The vase in this picture is a clear glass mason jar that has been spray painted white.  Once dry, the artists’ handmade polymer clay flowers are attached using super glue.  To see all of the details for making this project (including the polymer clay flowers) go directly to the BusyMommy blog.

Isn’t it beautiful?  We’re impressed!  What a beautiful treasure to surprise your mom, daughter, grandmother or friend with on Mother’s Day, or any day, for that matter! 

Happy Earth Day 2012 and Happy Mother’s Day!
