Art doesn’t transform. It just plain forms. — Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997), American pop artist
In a small fit of creativity, I challenged myself to pick up three pieces of litter from the parking lot and use them for a little art project. It took me about 30 seconds to discover my items: a piece of worn wood, a red plastic chip from somebody’s car light and a round plastic piece.
And here is my masterpiece! I simply glued the pieces onto a painted piece of recycled cardboard. For embellishment, I used recycled foil candy wrappers and two non-recycled items: blue glitter and an orange plastic jewel.
This would be an awesome and ultra cheap party project. Of course, you’d need to designate a safe place to scavenge for garbage items. For kids, you’d also need to be watchful to ensure nobody scores something disgusting such as a dirty hamburger wrapper. But don’t let that scare you. This is squeaky clean fun!
