Making an art from a hanger and other items – #trashtotreasurewithfinn project

You can watch my art process video through my YouTube channel 🙂

Hello everyone!

A few weeks ago, I saw Finnabair’s video on a challenge named #trashtotreasurewithfinn using her or Prima Marketing’s product packaging and creating art from it. Her project was terrific, so I thought to myself, why not try to make one too.

If you want to see her video, here is the link:

The timing of this project was perfect. A few weeks ago, when I was cleaning my crafting area, I discovered that these scarf hangers from Ardene were in my stash for more than five years. 

For the colour scheme, I’m inspired by an image that I saved on Pinterest:

Here is the rest of the recycled items and stuff that I got from the thrift store:

  • honey holder/bottle holder
  • hanger hook
  • vintage looking spoons from the thrift store
  • sewing pins
  • dollar store ribbon

This is the acrylic set that I own in which most of the paints that I was using in this video came from.

I can’t seem to find a non-matte violet paint just like the bright yellow above on Michael’s website, so this might be a new packaging or formulation of the paint.
