The ultimate form of creativity may just be transforming everyday items, even what others may label garbage, into innovative objects. Look around: something you may not even notice could be just the right material for constructing some incredible designs.

Industrial strength cardboard molded into a pint sized chair. No need to worry when the inevitable spills and rips occur as the chair was built and named with this intention.  Labeled the ‘Rip + Tatter’ this tot chair is non-toxic and ready to be recycled after its worn out its welcome.

This diy project certainly generates food for thought.  The lamp was created out of printed soup cans.  A genius way to recycle.

The most inspiring of the bunch is this illuminated art piece created from recycled car headlights. Certainly gets the creative juices flowing.

Wooden apple crates turned bookcase. Unrefined work of beauty.
