Bad Craft Roundup

Today, a bad craft roundup. Mostly courtesy of that aesthetic oasis, the Repurposed Recycled Reused Reclaimed Restored Facebook page. (They were the geniuses who brought us the ruined wrenches and wig-head planters.)

It’s a ring. Made of a key.

…and below, key rings. In this case, made as favors for a wedding. I love the math here: Something that doesn’t need to exist + something else that doesn’t need to exist = something that could have been composted that will now be thrown away. (Don’t you wish it were easier to compost? We need to get some urban composting action happening.)

A whole patio made of pallets. What’s with the higgeldy-piggeldy slats? Is that a thing? Should we be putting those everywhere now?**pallet-patio

An old tennis racket transformed into a mirror/cosmetics tray through elf magic glass beads. The handle was similarly encrusted and dubbed a brush holder. “They make awesome gifts!” says the creator.

Another tennis racket transformation, this one titled “Mardi Gras.” The creator says she’s “made more than 150 of these over the years.” That’s a lot of tit flashes!

Am I crazy? I actually think these are a riot. You’d have to clean them up a little though; maybe paint them. They look kind of beat-down.

**I got to say “higgeldy-piggeldy!” It’s gonna be a great weekend.
