When you make stuff from recycled bits everything that you would normally throw away becomes a supply. Recently, I bought a new scarf at the Goodwill that was still attached to its ring for hanging it in the store. The ring was clear and about 2 inches around. I was getting ready to toss it, then thought “I can make something with that.” So I saved it.
This weekend I was looking for something quick and easy to make that would give me a bit of instant gratification. I pulled out the ring and crocheted with variegated yarn to cover the ring. I dug out one of the pogs that I had picked up at the Goodwill outlet. I covered it front and back with Basic Grey paper using mod podge to seal it. Then I glued it to the back of the ring. I then sewed on a ring of seed beads to finish it. I am not sure if it should be a pendant or a brooch, so have not finished it yet. It was a quick and easy 30 minute project with some instant gratification attached.
What quick and easy project have you accomplished?
