Ocean rubbish turned into marine animals | From Project: Makers and Creators Everyday I go to my local beach and while I'm there I pick up bottle lids, bits of rope, rubber thongs and a variety of different plastics. Most of the time all this rubbish I’m collecting would ultimately end up in landfill. What I’m trying to do is reduce landfill plus create awareness about all this rubbish that’s ending up in our oceans because it’s effecting our marine creatures that live there. The rubbish I mainly find is bottle lids, cigarette lighters, toothbrushes and lots of plastic. Once you start picking up marine debris off the beach it becomes hard to walk past. The challenge is turning a piece of rubbish that is considered worthless by our society and turning it into a piece of art that has some value. I’ll pick up a buoy or piece of plastic and I’ll think, that looks like the nose of a certain fish or the teeth of something or the head of a pelican and it just goes from there. I’ve made over 40 pieces so far, turtles, stingrays, manta rays and fish.

Paper alligator Why did we do these funny and durable alligators? – because the whole KROKOTAK family is on a long summer trip (we are even on another continent) … with all the things that we had to take with us in the suitcases, the room for the toys was so scarce ….

Fold the paper making 8 equal bands. The body of the alligator is made by 10 short bands. These are the remaining parts for the rest of the alligator. The tail is made from a long band. The mouth is made from the second long band. The legs are made from the two thin bands, which are folded by the middle, glued and folded in both ends. The eyes are made by the last, eleventh, short band. To make your alligator scary apply the sharp teeth See more paper toys in KROKOTAK:

Easy Spiral Paper Flower Heart - Canary Street Crafts Today we’re sharing an easy spiral flower heart craft. We typically don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day, but this was such a fun project to make, and depending on the colors you use, you could leave it up all year long. This project is part of the 2016 Valentine’s Day Blog Hop hosted by Creatively Homespun. This post contains affiliate links. We started with a burlap canvas similar to this one. We created a template for the heart simply by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting it out. We lightly traced the heart onto the canvas using a pencil to give us a guide for placing the flowers. Next, we made the flowers. Once all of your spirals are cut start curling the end of your spiral. Next, pick up a flower and pull back that little center portion. Once all your flowers are glued together you’re ready to hot glue them to your burlap board. After the heart was complete, we wrapped jute string around the left side of the panel and tied a little bow on it. Wanna hang out more?
