After The Star interview previously, the photographer on set, Raymond Ooi called me up to ask me if I’d like to be the cover of the newspaper for a Christmas series. The catch however was that I had to create a tree completely decorated by recycled ornaments in less than 24 hours for the photoshoot. As I’m always up for a challenge to test my creativity levels, I decided to give it a go (after a panic attack, of course).
The end result was something I am so proud of;The flower ornaments were made from recycled crepe paper (from flowers I’ve gotten before) & the fan paper flowers were pages of an old book that was coming apart. The star was also done using paper but this time cardboard. Some weaving work was required but it was fairly simple. I may just make smaller versions of these for decorations in the future 🙂 These ornaments were made of jar lids! I had made some tinted mason jars previously, and these were leftovers from that. I just cover the area with PVA glue and stuck rhinestones in it to give it some extra sparkle. Alternatively I wanted to use cut up pieces of old CDs but didn’t have enough time to execute it. My favourite of them all, are these little sock snowmen I’ve created. Using socks and leftover craft materials, these little fellas were so easy and fun to do. I love how cute they are! It might just be a tradition in my household to have recycled materials turned into ornaments for a tree.
