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

You and I are clearly very similar.  I love those decs and have a box of coloured ring pulls that I am keeping for 'special things'.

They are absolutely beautiful.  I too have a collection of small tins and now I am utterly inspired to alter them.

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.

10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A Green Idea Chain Game 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.
