I entered a Recycling Art Contest that my ecology club at school held (even though I'm in it), and I worked so hard on it that I have to show it! I used many different types of recyclable materials to create this landscape/tree/bird thing. Well, here are the pics!
This is the unfinished part. I cut out different colors of blue from newspaper advertisements and magazine clippings to make the grass.
The finished piece! The tree trunk is made of cardboard with strips of packaging paper for the ridges, aluminum can cut-outs for the leaves, coke cans for the birds, a plastic ring thing that I got of a top of a smoothie bottle, and diet decaffeinated coke cans for the sun. For the sun-- I cut out the bottom of the can and hot-glued a bunch of the can tongues to fill it in.
the sun is my favorite part!
Sorry if the pictures are too humongous.
