Christmas Ornaments from Recycled Materials

Recycled Holiday Ornaments
Our own Colleen Casey is at it again. This year’s new Christmas ornament is the six-point snowflake. The one shown in red is from the traditional real red soda can. We’re starting to see them in white with the new holiday cans. Beautiful.

Garth Johnson

Artists and crafters have always been recyclers, but for many, it has not only become a thrifty choice, it has become a moral imperative. 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse contains a cutting edge collection of the most inventive work being made with re-used, upcycled, and already existing materials. The work in this book ranges from clever and humble personal accessories to unique and important large-scale works of art, including paper art, fashion, jewelry, housewares, interiors, and installations.
