You've already seen my Christmas tree this year...
This is a project I worked on at work with one of our participants. I made up little houses out of milk cartons and other small cardboard boxes and he papier mached them in plain white paper.
Once the white paper had dried we covered them with tea bags! I've been collecting tea bags for a long time and for this project I soaked them, split them and thew out the tea leaves, then dried them flat. The colours are just amazing.
I did try writing on them but didn't like it. They're all plain tea bags now.
Below you can see I used them on each side of the new TV unit and on top of the wood heater.
On the wood heater I wound some fairy lights around them and light them up in the evenings. They look beautiful.
They'll be going back to work after Christmas to be exhibited next time we have an art show. I just needed to get some nice photos of them and hey, while they were here... I might as well put them to use!
