Upcycled Audio Cassettes

October 7, 2016

I am a 80s Kid for whom Music was all about audio tapes. Compiling my favorite songs, getting it recorded on those tapes had its own charm.

Time changed, technology evolved.

CDs replaced these audio tapes and made them obsolete. My Parents had a huge collection of it. They both were in love with Music.

I am grateful for Music too.

My Mother had donated almost all of those but kept a few. Last week, she was about to throw them in Trash but luckily I caught them first.

Thanks Pinterest for giving me an idea to up-cycle these junk items.

Our Home need a Welcome hanging. So, Let’s recycle cassette tapes.

I have 4 of them and colored it bright with Acrylic colors.



Picked up the characters from my Kid’s Story Book:

An Owl, A Turtle and A Pig

I wanted some change at the end so drawn a pattern rather than a figure.

Do you have some old tapes at you Home? Take them out and recycle cassette tapes into lovely wall hanging.

    Now I have to have a dig around for my old tapes. I had quite a collection at one time. I love the way you have painted yours, it really transforms them and they look really fun hanging up. They would brighten up any wall.
