Recycled wall decoration

I have for a long time wanted to change some decoration on my walls in the living room, but I just wasn’t sure to what? I then started to find different things here at home that I might be able to use and it started with these things you see here underneath.

Last week I slowly started on using and making some things for the decorations. I tried different things out and some of them were thrown away again because it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would and other things were found instead and used with good results. I love using materials I already have here at home without buying anything. I also like to make something different and with a little smile as well.

A small piece of fabric I knitted when I was studying fashion. The embroidery is from a second hand shop and it is felted into the fabric with some wool. The text comes from a magazine and I wasn't sure to place but as it say's...

Hand knitted and coloured afterwards

A crocket half lampshade placed on a piece of felt.

A washing label from a pair of jeans and a aluminum letter.

You know I love old toys and things from my past and I had these cute shoes standing from when I was little, and I just couldn’t resist using them and giving them a new life.
