Don’t know about you but I like to recycle. I strongly believe that we could recycle at least 80% of the stuff instead of throwing them away every day.
So, here’s a little preview what I’ve done with, for instance, old glass jars, mostly from my favorite products by Saclà Italia 🙂
The image below shows, for instance, glass jars filled with soil and plants. I got my hubby to drill in some holes and put them on the wall. They are hanging on the driftwood I collect (what? you don’t collect driftwood? of course you do! everyone does that …) every spring. So, finally, here is what my bathroom wall looks like today, everything recycled:

Here’s what the wall in my working room looks like:
As you can see, I am using glass jars as simple candle holders too… I color them, decorate them with leaves or stripes… or whatever I can recycle. Finally, I print out a paper candle shades and put them around the jars:
As you probably guessed, to create candle shades, I use my Photoshop brushes.
So, if you like these candle shades, this is the place to get them!
I hope you will maybe find some of these ideas inspirational and maybe you will find some stuff at home that doesn’t need to be thrown away but can be used to create a decoration or something useful for your household.
Have fun creating,
