I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It is one of my favorite holidays because it brings out the creativity in everyone and allows us to be as expressive as we would like to be. So, needless to say, my Litterbugs have been busy creating lots of Halloween recycled projects at the studio.
This one is my favorite...check out the fun shadows!
Plastic CD cases and empty medicine bottles for that orange glow!
This PUZZLE was a huge hit as well!
Popsicle sticks (half was already orange from an orange popsicle!)
You know your T-Shirt drawer is in need of a good spring cleaning. Why not take those old, faded, not-entirely-flattering pieces of cotton off the bottom of that neglected stack and breathe some life back into them? That's what we did at Trashed:
(This one is a little "Madonna-esque", but I love it.)
Add some pop, add some flair, add some broken beads and... voila!...you've got yourself a brand new accessory!
I (after sending out a silent apology to the author to free myself from the guilt) gave this paperback novel a second purpose in life! It was a great read in its first life, but rather than letting it live out its days trapped in a dusty box in my attic, I decided that it deserved a more fashionable chance this go round!
So...I turned it into a beautiful book "poof", we will call it. It was so exciting to watch the transformation! Have a look!
I even found a page with my birthday as the chapter title...
so I decided to use some materials I have been collecting to give it a quick makeover.
I found a bunch of lace on freecycle that someone was planning to throw out.
A sweet mom from my son's preschool class gave me these turquoise beads that were a necklace her daughter had broken (thanks, Grace!).
I had some old twine and some old paper, paint and buttons.
Mix all of that together, and this is what you get! What do you think?
