Upcycling: Simple Upcycled Vase

ImageThis is  is a plain vase. I put garlic meshing with a blue ribbon on top. I then found a pick piece of rubber ring and sew it on the center. This vase was turned from plain to one with a trimming that is white, and blue and a cute pink center piece. Enjoy

Upcycling: New York City Rockette Paper Doll

ImageImageI actually had some red paint. I love the color red and I decided why not make a paper doll with a red outfit. The first thing that came to mind where the NYC Rockettes at Christmas time. I know it is spring. But, I decided to make one by painting paper tissue red, Her hat’s top is made out of cardboard with the paper covering it, The ribbon is made out of garlic mesh and the hat is also covered with red mesh from an onion package. She is made out of a box of cereal. She is wearing white gloves made out of plastic, as well as her hair that is made out of plastic bag handles. Enjoy

Upcycling: A Golden Vase and Flower

ImageThe first picture is of one of those glasses you get in an amusement park or even a restaurant with the company’s logo on it and after you get it home you just put it away. I decided to spray paint it gold, and I put to previously upcycled flowers made out of pantyhose and paper in it to make it more striking with the black and white in the vase. The second is simply the mesh from garlic wrapping wound around a bamboo stick and tied with kite string. I then spray painted it gold. It actually looks metallic although I didn’t expect it.
