My own efforts at melted crayon art for our daughter... Board is the normal backing to the picture frame. Painted with white chalk paint. Letter and umbrella blanks cut out of cardboard and the rest is obvious from the pics.
I found some ideas to recycle creatively! Pick 3 TVs, a slightly larger than the other, empty inside, paint them in different colors, and screw together, and then add 4 feet at the base! Once you have created a modern library youth room!More ideas for recycling at http://styleitchic.blogspot.com
