Recycling used closets and decluttering your closets can be fun. Contemporary textile sculptures created by artists are inspiring, giving ideas creating home decorations and kids toys of used clothes. We like to buy more clothing than we really need, so every home has this wonderful material for diy art and craft projects.

Artists create huge and impressive textile sculptures and contemporary installations. Small home decorations and crafts made with used clothes are alternative ideas to add colorful accents and unique designs to home interiors while having fun with used clothes and decluttering closets.
