This Maracas are exactly made like the ones I posted yesterday. Handmade with 90% of reused materials . Made of chopsticks and PET caps previously washed. Containing pebbles or beans in the inside. We cover with papier mache and then glue the paper flowers giving them a shabby chic touch.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
I’ve been very busy lately spending time working in new products for my local market catalog. I decided to put some of this products in my Etsy shop so during this couple of weeks I will be sharing with some of my new products. Today and tomorrow will be my maraca collection that has been very successful locally and I want to see how it works on etsy. Hope you like it
Maracas are often think for destination weddings but I believe they are symbol of any kind of celebration.When you pick up one of these maracas you will not want to put it down. And as fun as they are, they also are beautiful to display.
The first image are maracas made from tabachinnaturally dried pods. The dried seeds inside the pods make the rattle sound. . No two are exactly the same size; they are aprox 8″ to 12″ long. Hand painted just one side and in the other side a text is printed in vinyl and stick to the back of each pod (names of the groom and bride or thank you)
The second image are maracas handmade with 90% of reused materials . Made of chopsticks and PET caps previously washed. Containing pebbles or beans in the inside. We cover with papier mache and then hand painted them. And they sound as nice as the traditional maraca.
There is something about japanese design that I just love. It’s probably that it always has a bit of sweetness. This matchsticks were created by japanese artist Hiromi Hirasaka, be sure to go to his facebook page to see the rest of his collection. I first spotted them via one of my favorite design blogs Designboom. I belive matches can always be handy so I am looking forward having this ones in my house. My favorite ones are the Daruma ones. Which one is your favorite?
Irecently t got my edible spoon kit, I order it thru a friend that lives in Spain, but I have not used it yet. Just recently I spotted this ones could not find where to buy them. I think they are a great idea. What a great solution for plastic waste, edible spoons .
I wanted to make some edible spoons before sharing this to you in Eco tuesdays, but I better not, plus just yestarday I post flowers made out of disposable spoons and it came to my mind I have my kit waiting to be used and it can remain like that for a while.

And the other one is, I just join venture with another talented women Cristina from Daxalma. We join toghether the two companies and started working to create wedding details from trash.
Today I am sharing with you one our products, a flower made from disposable spoons. Locally this has been well received.
Recently I sold this flower for a wedding seating arrangement and also for a small event and some for mother’s day. My biggest client for this item is Flora Farm a very popular restaurant here in Los Cabos, that is an experience to visit, not just for their good food, but also for a visit to their organic market and people watching. Hop on over right now to check it out.
