Trash to Treasure part 3

A rubbish bin and ash tray made from a lid with metallic duct tape. The cigarette is a plastic bristle from a brush.


Scale was made from a disposable razor and some other things she found in her trashy collection. Waste basket made from a toothbrush cover.
These serviette dispensers were made from the top part of disposable lighters, stuffed with paperclay.

Bubbler


Another trash to treasure! This is a mini drinking fountain.

I got the idea to make this from a mini friend Doreen after showing these to her. Thanks Doreen! This is made from two wine stoppers found at Dollar Tree, it doesn't have running water yet. I need ideas on how I can make that. I tried Saran Wrap, but that didn't look right to me. I welcome your input."

Trash To Treasure






Tanya from Atlanta
likes to make miniatures from bits and pieces. In fact, many miniaturists do! Good looking miniatures do not have to be expensive, and I think the above photos demonstrate this well.

These salon chairs were made from erasers, wire, and jenga pieces! The sink was made with the help of a ladybug shell from a cheap shop! But isn't the result spectacular? Do you make anything like this? I hope to share more from Tanya soon.
