CHRISTMAS RECYCLING CHALLENGE!



This next challenge will also run for 2 weeks - we figure you might have one or two other things to keep you busy??

In this season of much goodwill and even more RUBBISH (all that wrapping paper and packaging etc) we challenge you to keep your eye out for packaging you can recycle into art! For example my silver topped wooden box was a Christmas gift from last year - it had a "Hotel Chocolat" logo right across the lid. Now this is safely covered up and the unfinished wood has several coats of varnish.

The other piece you've seen before as part of our "make a house" challenge, but it was also recycled from last Christmas - it's built on a gift box base which contained my new watch! This is an item that would definitely have been thrown away without a squirrel like me in the house ...

So keep your eyes open for packaging you can use, and you have until 2nd January to transform it into something else!! Looking forward to seeing what you can find .....
