1  Re: We want to see!!!! Completed Projects Links! in REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING by Cherie on: February 14, 2016 04:11:44 AM
I have been doing a lot of knitting and crochet these past few months. I snip the stray ends off and drop them into a little plastic bin as I work.  Last weekend I delivered a needle felting workshop  and when I got home I had a brainwave......  I wondered if the snips and scraps of yarn ends could be felted...... so I tried it.....  Yay, it works.   I put a very fine layer of roving down first,  topped it with a thickish layer of snips of fluffy acrylic yarn,  topped this with another fine layer of roving and needle felted it.  Then I needle felted some fluffy acyclic yarn to make a teddy bear .

Thank you both.  My friends now all try to guess what I have upcycled when making things. This summer I was addicted to making boats from upcycled breakfast cereal boxes covered in papier mache. I made them in loads of different sizes.  I will leave you with a few photo of other things that I have made.  I am pleased as punch to tell you that I won 1st prize in the recycling section at our local Country Show this summer with my backpack made from pop tabs.  The little flower brooch I  made using flowers that I made from stale bread and pva glue. I treated it like a cabochon and beaded around it.  I made loads and gave them away to friends. The paper fuchsia flowers are uncycled envelopes. 

Have a wonderful Christmas. xxx

My son brought me a box full of thin sponge packaging. I have cut it into loads of Christmas shapes and here are a few cards that I made.

5  Re: A Green Idea Chain Game in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Cherie on: December 09, 2015 01:38:37 PM
What can I do with these? They're cardboard fax paper roll cores. They're thick, so they can't be bent.
I have a saw that I can chop them up.
So far, I've used them for some little trees.Any ideas?



What is the diameter?  Is it worth cutting up and making pen pots or desk organisers? If they are thin then you could use them as spokes and weave a tray/basket with newspaper.

Eggshell mosaic....... I finished the packet of breakfast cereal yesterday morning so I put the empty box near the back door to take out to the recycle bin........ it didn't get that far as I had a couple of dark eggshells drying on my windowsill which I had intended to add to my eggshell stash.... Everyone has an eggshell stash don't they???   Hmm, as usual tis just me then I guess..... Anyway, before I go off on a tangent and start telling you about the gorgeous apple,raisin and fudge scone I had yesterday I will tell you about this little bit of junk art.   I cut two rectangles from the cereal box and glued them together to make the card a little stronger.  Then I cut two butterflies from a bit more of the box.  This is a craft that really does cost nothing more than a bit of glue and a lot of patience. I will go back and fill some of the more noticeable space with more shell when I have a minute today.

Here is the Inro so far.  It needs several coats of mod Podge and a couple of coats of clear varnish before I move on to the next stage. But I am really pleased with how it is turning out

Yesterday my friend Anona challenged me to make an Inro (google it).  This morning I found a little plastic bottle, a couple of red envelopes and made a start. This is a picture of inro drying.  I will decorate it once it is fully dry.  I have put a step by step with photo's on my blog if you fancy giving it a try
