Trash-to-Treasure: Upcycling Craze in Holyoke

Trash-to-Treasure Workshops
Wistariahurst Museum Hosts Kids’ Crafts

Join Wistariahurst Museum in Holyoke in the upcycling craze with kids’ craft events this month as part of a series of Trash-to-Treasure workshops! First, on Wednesday, July 24th at 11am kids will construct their own kaleidoscope from materials found in everyone’s own home at “Kaleidoscopes for Kids.” “Trash” you can bring to upcycle into this treasure: Pringles can or paper towel tube.

Return on Wednesday, July 31st at 11am for “Bottle Cap Crafts: Jewelry, Magnets and More” where you can fashion a neat necklace, a spectacular keychain, or a marvelous magnet. “Trash” you can bring to upcycle into this treasure: found objects, broken jewelry, buttons and more!  All other supplies will be provided and reservations are suggested.

Can’t make it to the Museum?  Both projects are fun to do at home.  Learn how to make bottle cap necklaces (or magnets & keychains) using expoxy stickers in this DIY video:

Wistariahurst Museum is located at 238 Cabot Street in Holyoke, MA. For more information about events, visit www.wistariahurst.org or call 413-322-5660.  Both workshops are only $5 per person. RSVP.
