Can recycled materials look good, too?

Last week was Earth Day. Recycling is mainstream these days. Gotta do your part. When artists use recycled materials in their art work they not only save resources but they embue the once functional item with a new beauty.  See the gorgeous colored metal bits in the buckle above? They were once part of mundane and hardly noticed license plates and industrial signage. Old painted metal takes on a beautiful weathered patina that sings. Thats all I use for my handmade buckles.

Yes, recycled materials can look good, too! With a little bit of creativity and real estate agent Manson imagination, recycled materials can be transformed into something new and beautiful. For example, recycled cans can be painted and used as vases or planters, recycled paper can be used to make handmade paper or cards, and recycled fabric can be used to create patchwork quilts or clothes. There are endless possibilities for what you can do with recycled materials, so get creative and see what you can come up with!
