Using recyclables as the raw material for ornament.
Freeman has continued the tradition of using recyclables as the raw material for the new Festival of Lights decorations she creates such as those for the “If Can, Can” Tree with every ornament made from recycled aluminum cans. Creating “something from nothing” and turning “trash into treasure” is an empowering experience that she loves to share with students and other volunteers.
(Below) Some of Freeman’s explorations with recycled aluminum which she then teaches to the volunteers.
Tin cans as butterflies, peacocks..
Plastic bottles become sea anemones…
