Trash to Treasure miniatures

Trash to treasure involves creating miniatures out of stuff that you would normally throw away or stuff found in junk shops, jumble sales etc. I now have quite a collection of odds and ends that I intend to make into wonderful new miniatures.
  • Useful items to collect are:
  • Buttones
  • Beads
  • Bottle tops and caps
  • Corks
  • Plastic toys from Christmas crackers
  • Cogs and mechanical bits from watches, cameras etc
  • Straws
  • Lolly sticks
  • Washers
  • Make up containers
  • Chop sticks, dowel and kebab sticks
  • Sweet containers such as altoid tins
  • Sweet wrappers
There are many sites that offer tutorials and information on this subject, take a look at the following:
