Do you have some old silverware you don’t know what to do with? Want to create new items out of clothes you no longer wear? Or perhaps you need a unique gift for someone? Trash to Treasure will help you turn old or unwanted items into new ones, extending their life and giving them new purpose!
This project is the result of work from three 4-H organizations: 4-H Ontario, 4-H Saskatchewan and 4-H Jamaica.
In this project, you’ll:
- Gain experience working with a large variety of materials
- Make crafts by reusing or recycling old items
- Learn a variety of techniques to turn old materials into practical or attractive items
- Stretch your creativity by finding beauty or usefulness in “trash”
