Garden Junk Crafts Are The Current Treasures

By Elsa Noel

Treasure is not always about gold, silver, precious gems, money inside the vault, or an heirloom given to you by your great grandmother. Other people may sometimes consider their cellular phones or tablets their treasured belongings. A treasure could be a person who is very close to your heart.

If you ask someone whether he likes to recycle garbage found inside the trashcan, I doubt that he would say yes. Yes, we are discussing about trash as modern day treasures. If you really care about our Mother Earth, take notice around. You can find scattered garbage in the sea, rivers, canals, and our dumpsites are already full. One good idea is learning some garden junk crafts.

Our current space is too narrow to move with all the garbage that surrounds us. After twenty years, the world might be full of wastes and we will regret not saving this planet. Non-biodegradable wastes are very harmful to our health and it degrades the environment because natural decomposers cannot decompose them such as bottles, rubbers, plastics, and scrap metals.

These dirty, damaged, and scrapped trashes are recyclable and can be transformed into brand new items you never know it could exist. Only a little play of imagination and creativity is needed for it to be done and materialized.

Extraordinary and unique products can be had and place them as decor items at homes and offices. It could be very functional objects for gardens and decorations. Old newspapers can be transformed to newspaper baskets, newspaper handbags, and newspaper pots. Lots of newspapers are blessings because newspaper chairs can be crafted when you tightly group them together.

Collecting CD's are of the past because today, we can buy online without actually having the CD itself. We can listen to music with out phones, laptops, and computers. These CD casings can be formed into a box and use it as a small greenhouse for your plants. It is a good protector against strong heat, wind, and rain.

Your imagination is the limitation. It can carry you to several places and enables you to craft things you cannot imagine. It needs few art and craft materials such as strings, sticks, adhesive tapes, cutter, rulers, pair of scissors, and stronghold glue. Once you have all these things, go to the storage rooms and trash cans for possible recycling project.

People are too busy with their work and career and it is very unlikely to allot some time for recycling. With recycling you are a winner in all angles. First, you save the environment. Next, you turned your ugly area into a very attractive and beautiful place. It can be a new hobby and these are originally made by you. Third, earn money out of it and sell them in the market whether online or in local shops. Last but not the least, recycling can inspire others and allow them to try it by themselves. You change lives and perception that garbage is truly a treasure.

Garbage is a treasure. Once you got the interest, enrol to workshops or creative seminars for crafting and recycling. Few classes can help you start and learn the basics.
