I was inspired by this post to make some trash charms. I've seen some apple cores here before, but it never occured to me to make a bracelet completely out of trash! (charms that is)

Here are updated pics. Close ups and the finished bracelet!  Grin



teddy bear and wilted flower


crushed can and a tea bag


single sock, chicken bone and apple core


banana peel, fish bones and half eaten nachos with a napkin in them


empty can of peas, abc gum, chewed pencil


open envelope and ruined cassette


I hope you like them!

Those are very fun, and funny. but I have to say...
The banana peel, apple core and tea bag can be composted. The soda can can be taken to the recycler for cash.
And the envelope can be recycled as well.
some of the others are too tiny for me to identify.
But since they are charms and not the real thing they will make a great bracelet.

Maybe you can turn this into things that can be recycled for the 350 Challenge.
