I am all about recycling. Especially giving new life to items that have been tossed aside. I have a really fun and easy craft for you all today I know you will enjoy.

I went to my local home depot to gather some of the supplies needed for this craft ( spray paint and glue) and I found Energizer® EcoAdvanced batteries ( make sure to check it out)  – it is the world’s first AA battery made with 4% recycled batteries and is Energizer’s longest-lasting battery. Try it! Power your most critical devices AND have less impact on the planet!

I found the batteries at the front of the store near the cash registers

I was so inspired by the recycle aspect of the Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries that I decided to recycle used batteries that I had on hand in the Picture Frame Chalkboard. Did you know ? This is the first battery on the market to use recycled batteries/materials. EcoAdvanced batteries are available in AAA and AA. I picked up AA because Eric is always needing batteries for his game controllers.

The most important part of this project is the picture frame. I went to a local garage sale and picked up a large picture frame for a few bucks.

I then cut a chalkboard sticker to fit into the picture frame. I attached the sticker to a thin piece of wood. It took all of 15 minutes.

If chalkboard is not your thing – that is totally okay. I found this white board sticker and it can be used the same way. I found both at The Home Depot for under $10.

What I love so much about this shopping list board is that you are recycling old items but it is so useful and it looks very shabby chic!

I wanted to “glam up” up the chalkboard pen and holder. I decided to spray paint used batteries and holder.

I then glued the batteries to the holder. BAM and DONE!
