As well as painting, I am quite handy with tools and like to dabble in some craft work. I have managed to recycle beads from broken jewellery, garden wire, and bangles into beautiful trees and pendants. Here are a few of them....
I had a go at recycling my cds into hanging mobiles for my garden. I hung a few on my cherry tree and when the sun shone it lit up the garden with dancing lights. It looked magical. Here is a link showing fun alternative ways of recycling cds.
I even turned the inside drum of my old dryer into an awesome flower pot for my blackcurrant bush, which seems very happy in it. When my mother changed her boiler I salvaged some of the parts and turned them into sculptures for the garden. I do love my garden and I am always finding ways to beautify it.
Well I thought this would be a good time to share art, but in a different way. Instead of showing off my own work, I thought it would be a good idea to share other people's ideas. I am sure you will have great fun trying some of them out. Here is the link. Enjoy!!
