“green” fingers – upcycling

Upcycling — giving an old item a new and better purpose in life which greatly helps save the environment, or simply put — turning otherwise discarded items/rubbish into something more useful or beautiful, and of better value.

Upcycling crafts = green crafts and hence, my version of “green” fingers!

“Green” Fingers 2015 – Project 1
From plastics to one-of-a-kind necklace – “bronze”

Core materials – plastic bottles and satin bias tape

upcycled plastics - bronze (4)

 

Methods – cut plastic water bottles into strips, wrap strips with satin bias tape, manipulate them into desired shapes and then design the one-of-a-kind necklace!
