Olympia Dumpster Divers doesn’t love trash, we love the creative ways folks have found to reuse trash:
Nolasalvage creates heart picture frames and other crafty things out of recycled wood, salvaged metal, mardi gras beads, junk jewelry, buttons, and sometimes even Katrina debris; found her fun recycled art at Great Green Goods. Over on flickr we found Urbanwoodswalker’s wonderful heart in hand pendants made from aluminum cans (and we now own one).
Ecoartist Chris uses plastic bread bags to make hearts and hangs them in the woods.
Olympia Dumpster Divers own Ruby Re-Usable uses plastic bread bags to make cupids to hang around the house.
Happy Hearts Day! Now go out and share the love, find some unloved object and turn it into something special, discover how detritus can be beautiful, create a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, Make Art Not Waste! love, etc Ruby
