I’ve bought a handful of unique items from Etsy, like my Atticus Finch shirt by inexplicableconfetti and a cute purse by Funky Chic Designs. But there’s also a large selection of home decorations made from recycled items. I found the Recycling Tree, a wall panel by Reincarnations.
Painted on a piece of reclaimed wood, the edges and back are left raw. Small metal leaves punched from recycled soda cans fall from the tree’s shadowy branches.
“Please recycle” symbol is attached to the side of the painting. Hanger is a pop top from the soda can.
Definitely a clever and attractive use of items that would ordinarily be thrown out!
