Christmas Decors from Garbage

There’ s a Christmas exhibit on the ground floor of the controversial Municipality of Makati’s building. The lobby is normally full of taxpayers but last week, it’s aglow with Christmas lights and fancy decorations made from garbage and recycled materials. The event is a project of the local government.

Someone tried to make a Christmas tree out of paper plates. The good thing about trying is there is no rule as to how many tries you could have till you perfect it. The only limit is time. You have to do it before the holidays are over.
