There’s no shortage of items around school and at home that can be transformed into works of art. Have fun, be creative, and see what you can make from litter

Recycled art can take many forms; from collages and instruments to picture frames and plastic bag knitting, the possibilities are endless. Once your waste-to-art creations are complete, why not hold an exhibition to showcase them in your classroom, library or school hall? 

To give you a few art and craft ideas and to help you get started, Planet Ark has put together a short guide full of fun projects you can make with your students.
