Trashy-Craft Revisited

August 27, 2008 at 7:50 pm (Addlepatedness, Doings, Hannah's Little Blog)

Welcome to all dear souls interested in the refined and distinctive art of trash picking. It is not to be confused with dumpster-diving, pack-ratting, squirreling away, or junk collecting. No, no, this is frugal culture at it’s finest. My current project: transforming three empty wine bottles into corrals for my ever-on-the-lam knitting needles. With some TLC, paint, and a custom sweater, maybe I can turn them into something cute and functional. If not, I can just return them. Here’s what I’ve done so far.

  All clean!!

    I love your posts on repurposing. Can’t wait to see how you decide to transform these bottles!

    I think I’ll saw off the necks, because there isn’t enough room for my needles. It should be interesting.

    Don’t worry, I’ll wear my protective face gear + use a good coping saw.

    And what exactly is your face gear? A doily?
