Somewhere on here, someone used beer/soda caps for a table top, coated with resin. And someone else cut apart metal soda cans, and made an awesome frame for a mirror.
Look in the old finished craft swaps. I was part of a Jimmy Buffet swap, and some of the crafts people made might be adaptable for a bbq restaurant/bar.
Some kind of mobile? Umm...
Corks. That one's tough. Again,  maybe glue a bunch on the frame of an old mirror or something? Look at the Goodwill/thrift store for kitchsy wall art?
Anyway, good luck! It sounds like a fun place.

40:: Find out when junk day is in your neighborhood-it's 3-4 times a year here.  Keeps walking/driving around, people put out stuff well before the day, and you can score neat stuff. I've found beeswax and wicks, (new-guess someone quit candlemaking), beautiful frames, ect.

41: Go to the library, and check out the craft books. You'll get lots of ideas on how to use stuff you never thought of before.

Make little notebooks. Decoupage a tabletop. Cover a folder or binder with them.  Make a purse.

Thank you! I didn't even know they made paints just for leather. I am strapped for cash-don't know yet if I'll wait until I'm flush, or go ahead. I have a long leather coat. Didn't cost me anything, hand me down from sister in law. Shop didn't want it-long coats not in style. So, why not paint it? I want to do something steampunky before a convention next year. Thanks for the advice, and I'll be sure to post when I finally do this.

make a base form out of cardboard and or tightly rolled newspaper. cover with several layers of paper maiche. Sand, paint. Use a stool from goodwill for a base/legs, if you won't have a table to set it on?
Build a rack from cheap plastic pipe from the hardware store? Look for an interesting piece of furniture from the thrift shop? Go to a dept. store, and beg for cast off mannequins, or heads, or other parts thereof? Good luck.

Oh, nice job! You have a lucky fella.
Might I pick your brain? I have a leather jacket I've been wanting to paint. What kind of paint did you use? prepping? Did you seal it?

Anyway, thanks. And again, great painting and jacket. Well done.

I'm hoping someone here can help me. My computer died-god knows when I can get it fixed. So, all my lovely links and bookmarks are unaccessible. There's a british website-and I've forgotten the name. This into that, what can I do with this? Something like that. People would ask about specific items-ink pens, mousepads, anything at all. And others would respond. Either with how to recycle it, or stuff you could make from it. It was cool. Anyone here know what the site is?  Thanks!

Very nice! My favorite is the tree magnet.

Very creative! I love Miss Mitzi. Good for you for making your own props for your items, and good luck selling your stuff.
You get to be creative, and have more money for important stufflike yarn.Win!
The flowers appeal to me, just something about them.

Bookends. Decorated, or just as they are. Fill them with something heavy, and you're all set.
