Create a sculpture for your garden using household objects.  Raid your shed for unwanted wood, metal and plastic items and combine them with the materials provided by Michelle to invent fantastical or practical structures for your garden.

Make insects from recycled materials. A bee on a stick to buzz around your houseplants, a spider to climb up your wall or a dragonfly for your bathroom perhaps.  Take inspiration from the insect world and use found materials such as cutlery, bicycle wheel spokes and door knobs to bring your idea to life.
