'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' project


Hi Friends 
Just in case you were wondering what happened to the left over portion of the Liquor box upcycled in this post, here's it in all ethnic glory...............






I don't think there's much to explain, wrapped jute twine around using glue, some dry leaves from a dry plant arrangement at home, wooden buttons, Fevicol MR and handmade Jute twine flowers (see tute here). I made my loom with a single piece of thick cardboard and used pins stuck into sides. I have used a very thin jute twine almost like a thickish thread for the flowers which was salvaged from a packing of household crockery items.  This is for a 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' project for my younger son's school exhibition. 




Hope you like it.....
