Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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 80 projects and ideas 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-a-bottle pendant. Myriad uses for old crates include planting them with herbs and vegetables and transforming one into a night stand. Add something different to your household with a range of light fittings made from colanders, a birdcage, and even jello molds! 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 jewelry to door handles and coat hooks. Finally, try making unwanted sweaters into cosy pillow covers. Whether you're a beginner or an 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.

Includes index.
