Did you know that we Americans throw out an average of 4-5 pounds of garbage a day? That’s crazy. And sad. We need to end the waste and start doing something with that garbage!
Repurposing, recycling, upcycling, whatever you want to call it, I love taking something that you would normally throw away and turn it into something beautiful.
Why stop at making wreaths out of book pages, garbage bags, or VHS tape? We’re discriminating against the other less pretty garbage. Well, I think it’s all pretty so I decided to do something about it.
Want to make your own? Here’s how:
1. Get a wreath. I like these ones from the dollar store.
2. Spray paint your wreath in a bright, fun, glaring color. Something that will draw attention and scream “look at me, I recycle, and therefore am better than you.”
3. Assemble your garbage
4. Grab a glue gun and go to town
5. If you have a toddler handy, ask her to peel some oranges. The peels add a nice touch and their beautiful fragrance counteracts the smell of the garbage.
And here it is all completed!
Here’s what everything is:
