Reduce * Re-Use * Recycle
One of my favorite parts about crafting and up-cycling is that it trains your brain to look at the usefulness of all objects, instead of the uselessness of treating everything like waste. It is not just about consuming trendiness and well-marketed craft supplies, but rather, a contemplative way of observing and re-imagining the objects around you. A broken chair becomes a table, an old dress becomes a fancy shirt, and in this case, left-over containers are turned into jewelery.
I also really like this project because you really get down to the geometry and design of an object that you would usually take for granted. A yogurt container. It has colors and shapes, curves, slopes, and designs.
- Light-weight plastic container, I’m using a large yogurt container
- Heavy scissors, kitchen shears
- Small hole punch
- Basic earring/jewelry findings
- Small pliers (for the jewelry findings)
