Waste material from styropor foam or several kinds of drink containers are carved in with a pencil by drawning the desired form. Lines and areas depressed like this are later kept “white” or colorless.

Forms are cut out.

Special print color is applied with a roll on one side of the form. It is now to be seen mirrow-wise.

Form is pressed hard (hand circling) on paper and motive is applied again mirror-wise on the paper and looks there in the same way like the carved form on the waste paper

Activity:  creation of tea candle holders made with glass jars
Topic: creative upcycling

What do you need: glass jars (at least one per participant; glass painting; sponges; golden and silver permanent markers and acrylic paint


At first you need to clean the glass jars keeping away the paper they have (if you are using recycled ones from jam or the pickles). Dry them and paint with the glass painting using sponges instead of brushes. We suggest to paint each jar with just one colour or some nuances because the next step will be the decoration. Let the jars dry completely.

Now it's time to create decorations in arabic style. At first you can paint the upper side of the jars with golden or silver glass painting or acrylic and then start to decorate the jar with the markers.  Here attached some examples of decorations that can be copied on the jars with carbon paper or they can be used just as inspiration

Activity:  creation of flowers with flyers or newspapers
Topic: creative upcycling

What do you need: sheets of paper (from the flyers from the supermarket offers or news papers or magazines); skewer sticks; vinilic glue; brushes


At first it is necessary to create come paper straws (to be used for the creation of the stem, leaves and the central part of the flowers). 

You have just to roll the paper around the stick, trying to make it as tight as possible, putting some glue with the brush from time to time and to fix the end of the paper. Take the stick away and your straw is ready. Consider that you will need 4-5 straws per flower, so you need to create many of them!


While the straws are drying you can start to prepare the flowers following the steps showed in this video, it's an origami flower. The video also shows how to glue the other parts of the flower made with the paper straws. For this we used a stronger glue called acetovinyl glue.
