RePlayGround turn scrappy materials and other urban detritus into wonderful upcycled projects and products. This Sunday, from 3-6pm, they’ll be turning cardboard, bottle caps, subway passes and other trashy crafts into holiday decorations at a private residence in north Brooklyn. There’s so much trash in this city waiting to be upcycled, you don’t need to buy any ornaments! To RSVP or for more information, contact RePlayGround’s founder Tiffany: [email protected]

    Cool products. I guess most of us do stuff like that when we’re young, but the quality shown is probably a lot better than I could do!

    I’m looking forward to making one of those xmas trees myself – and of course anything polyhedron is always good fun!
