Insane creative, rustic, ideas
We all talk of being environmentally friendly, now we can with these wonderful ideas to help.

Have you an authentic rusty vehicle, on a property and don't know what to do with it? Perfect idea, grow a tree through it, naturally this will take a few years to grow, but when it does it will be a focus point of your property, or you can cut the vehicle in half and place it around a tree.

A creative and environmentally friendly way of displaying candles for any occasion. Dress it up, leave it natural, add some gum nuts to the edges, a great activity for the kids to decorate.

Maybe you might like to try this one, grab some old chains, a large knoby, piece of wood, lacquere it up, add the chains and hey presto you have an authentic rustic style original basin or bench.

Do you like chainsawing and chiseling, have a go at making one of these fantastic natural seats. Absolutely no rules on this one, and sorry kids not an activity for you due to the safety rules of being around chainsaws, however, you can decorate it, paint it or lacquere it when done.

Creative minds will be put to test, I'm sure many will be trying to outdo the last creation. Let your imagination run wild on these ones, the more jagged, ragged, knoby, rustic and original the better.

Have fun and look forward to seeing some creative environmentally friendly items in your homes.

The sink is amazing. You'd have to be a professional to be able to make something as skilled as that though.
