8) Make Art
Similar to repurposing, junk can very well be turned into art. Antique window panes can be painted and hung on the wall for a makeshift lake view. Old candles can be melted down and formed into one huge candle that sits on the floor, or it can be molded into a wax cat sculpture. Broken guitars can become public coffee shop installation pieces and sell for fifty dollars with the right back story. Old news papers can be turned into ransom poetry and greeting cards to be sold at the local farmer’s market. Anything is possible when you consider something to be art, and your best materials could be right at the foot of your bed.
