Creepy Crawly Crab: Upcycled Sink Wacky Yard Art

Add a bright red splash of funky color and fun to your yard with this creepy crawly crab, made from an upcycled bathroom sink.

Lightweight metal sink is graced with cheery cherry red paint, two cut-out metal eyes, two sets of scampering metal legs and one big, fat claw made from an upcycled pair of tongs.

Weatherproof for indoor and outdoor use, additional features include small holes drilled in the basin so water can drain instead of collect and help mosquitoes breed and stench build up.

See? This crabby guy thinks of everything. Crabby metal sink measures approximately 24 inches wide by 20 inches long by 12 inches deep. Metal held in place by strategic bending and clamping, so he can be disassembled for easy transport – just in case you want to take it to your mother-in-law’s house or something.

SOLD!!! to a lucky woman in Georgia – thank you!

Much thanks to Deb’s neighbor Rose who generously donated the sink while wondering what the heck I’d end up doing with it.

Snake Hiss Upcycled Art Collage: Harry Belafonte Album Back Cover

Coil your brain around this imaginative and creative Snake Hiss collage created from the back of a Harry Belafonte album cover.

The Snake Hiss College is part of a series of art created for the Bookmans Green Fest upcycled art contest. Artists were asked to come up with works using discarded books, CDs, record albums and other miscellaneous debris from the store’s recycle bin.

For some reason there were several Harry Belafonte albums in there. We know he would be proud of the masterpieces he has become.

The total collage set stands at five: Bumblebee Buzz, Moo Cow, Cat Meow, Dog Bark and Snake Hiss. The only one that did not use a Belafonte front or back album cover as the base was Moo Cow, which instead used the soundtrack album of some musical I have since forgotten.

Paint, CD parts, glue, lettering from book covers complete the handmade works, each containing a lot of creativity and a little bit of love.

It’s hard to love a Calypso face too much, after all.

Each collage comes framed in a special record album frame, metal with a clear, thick plastic front, which fits the exact dimensions of the album size of 12 inches square.

Love it?
