Recycle Fun Art

Here is a simple way to recycle those magazines you have hanging around the house.  While looking for recycled gift items last December at the Kill Devil Hills Artist Cooperative I found these lovely bows you see here.  Apparently these bows are made from very colorful strips of magazine paper and, because the paper is shiny and bright, the result is truly artistically pleasing!  I used them on gifts wrapped in newspaper for the total recycled effect which was a big wow with family and friends!  Hey, it beats trying to recycle that coated paper.  Try it!



  1. These bows are wonderful. Do you have instructions for making them.
    I would recommend turning off the flash preview window that pops up when moving the mouse over the post. I think it is pretty annoying.
    Love the new blog.

    • Thanks! I did not know it did the flash preview thing. I turned that off. So glad you like the blog. Please feel free to contribute.
