Every week, as part of this round-up, I want to pose our crafty community a challenge.
Take the inspiration I provide and make your own Instructable from it. Everyone who participates will get a special patch!
This week's challenge is: Recycled Pen
This gorgeous recycled pen flower vase
inspired me to make this weeks challenge a re-use pen project. This pen was heated and hand blown (using a similar technique to blown glass) to make this vase.
Once you've made your instructable, be sure to add it to the Check It Out! Challenge
Group, so I'll know to give you a patch.

are made out of all sorts of metals from recycled aluminum cans, stainless steel mesh, rivets, grommets, hooks, and more. For this challenge, fabricate your own garments out of found metals!
: I have seen some really unique clocks on instructables. I thought this clock make from a recycled bicycle could be inspiration to make some unique clocks from found objects.
