Recycled Book Dahlia Wreath & Upcycled Art Show

This magnetic decoration set was made from recycled book pages.  Each flower includes 19 petals hand-cut and created from squares of old book pages.  The kraft brown centers are cut outs from a coca-cola box (yes again) and a tiny pearl from a broken strand of vintage pearls is glued in the center.  These are probably some of my most detailed flowers yet.  That is why I will be forced to charge $15 for this decoration set and it will be available at my next show Sept 10th for Massena Harvest Festival.

I am very proud to be curating the first annual Uniquely NNY Upcycled Art Show.  Along with my other site Uniquely NNY ,  I am searching for other upcycling/recycled artisans and crafters to be a part of the show.  The show is October 29th at Clarkson University Cheel Commons from 10 - 4.  It is $20 for a 10x10 booth.  For more information or to see what vendors are already signed up, visit  This is sure to be a one of a kind show!

  1. Thanks for sharing this post. Hands-on 3rd in Los Angeles, California is also doing recycled art and they’ve got some very nice pieces too. Just recently they held an event with GreenopolisTV. Check out this video, it’s related to your post.
