Cute creatures made out of plastic bottles and other rubbish

Carolien Adriaansche’s creaturesLast week this little lady –> arrived in my email inbox.

She (I’m presuming she’s a she, from the eyelashes and pink scarf) is the work of Dutch artist Carolien Adriaansche.

Carolien makes all sorts of wonderfully cute creatures out of old rubbish – like our friend here, who has a bleach bottle body as well as her lightbulb head, and the three guys below, who are just so full of personality that it hurts :)

Carolien also uses other plastic bottles – like those thin ones that all purpose cleaner comes in – to make headless beasts.

Carolien Adriaansche’s creaturesUsing the handles for their ever-quite-gormless mouths, they have drink bottle caps for eyes and ears/horns made out of rubber gloves, plastic coathangers and even toe separators. Very cute.

See more of Carolien’s work on her website – click her name, then anywhere on the pink & blue guys, then her name again and on the big “C” for the galleries.

    I made to make a school project out of all recycled stuff and I made a dog whose fur was made out of dryer lint. It waS so fun and If I were a teacher I would do stuff like that all the time with my class. IT was so fun!
