28 Found Art Projects

From Insects from Found Objects to Recycled Gadget Guns

— September 28, 2010 — Eco
If you're looking to put your junk drawer to good use, check out these found art projects. Now you actually have a reason to clean out your attic.

You don't have to be an art-lover to appreciate these found art projects. From eco-DIY jewelery to garbage necklaces, you are sure to see something that will catch your eye.

Implications - Some stand outs in this collection of found art projects has got to be the toys made from trash, the creepy recycled sculptures, as well as the eco taxidermy. I really love the newsy recycled art though because it's an interesting take on reducing people's carbon footprint on the planet. Can you imagine a world where all of our garbage gets converted into art?
