Product description

In Junk Genius, you'll find highly rewarding and money-saving repurposing projects, and discover why making your own is a trend well worth exploring. Juliette Goggin and Stacy Sirk have created over 40 projects using items you can easily find or might already have. Discover creative ways to use glass with the compact kilner jar sewing kit and the pretty message-in-abottle pendant. Myriad uses for old crates include planting them with herbs and vegetables and transforming one into a bedside table. Add something different to your household with a range of light fittings made from colanders, a birdcage and even jelly moulds! Discover no end of uses for paper, including making bunting, labels, tags and table settings, and inventive ideas for crafting with wallpaper, stamps and old photos. Clear out those old keys and transform them into a range of items, from jewellery to door handles and coat hooks. Finally, try making unwanted jumpers into cozy pillow covers. Whether you're a beginner or experienced crafter, you'll learn to hunt out and see the potential in a whole range of items and be inspired to transform your treasure trove of useable raw materials into stunning new accessories for a beautiful home.
