Trash to Treasure

Before you head out for the recycling center, grab a few water bottles or other plastic cylinder containers and have some creative fun. Paint, paper mache, colored sand and joint compound can transform those otherwise ugly containers into pretty vases for giving flowers from your garden. On Wednesday, April 7, I will be conducting a workshop on ‘’Trash to Treasure” at 12:30 p.m. at the McCracken County Library. We will use paper mache to cover empty coffee creamer containers. To register contact the McCracken County Library at 555 Washington Street Paducah, Kentucky 42003 or call (270) 442-2510, Toll-free 866-829-7532

On April 7 we will paper mache Coffeemate containers. On April 21 we wil return to the library and decorate them using paint, decoupage, sand or whatever creative medium that comes to mind.

These containers once held
 Coffeemate, Gatorade and cola.
