Little Lester

Made by Phyllis Huber

Lester is “Trash Art”. He is made of paper towel holder, hotel shampoo bottle legs, toilet paper roll neck, News paper head. Armature was completed with wrapping in masking tape, then covered in Paper Clay and button eyes sculpted into place and other details given before painting him in acrylic paints. The ultimate in recycling!

  1. I just love Little Lester! You would never guess he is made from recycled materials. Great job and congrats. You are an example of what can be done with “trash”

    • Thanks Eileen,

      Sent a picture of him to my Sister. She sent me a picture of her real life one. They look so much alike its amazing. I had no idea. So Lester will be going to her house for her birthday coming up very soon. : ) Hope she gets many years of enjoyment out of him.

    • Thanks Rex!

      Reincarnation is a great way to look at it! So fun turning what would have otherwise been landfill items into something so cute.

      He lives on!
