OH, WE'LL BE TWINE
Scavenger Hunt your house, yard, and/or neighborhood for items to make a piece of lawn art. If you don't have a yard to display art, consider displaying your piece on a balcony, special room in your house, or gift it to a friend. You are limited to items around your house for the bulk of your piece. If you need to go get twine, glue, or other tools to assemble your art, that is acceptable.
Want some wind chimes? You just need some twine and a few metal and/or wood pieces. How about creating a sculpture or customized sign? Look around, see what you can find. Then, tinker*.
As you search for items, consider this trite phrase, "one person's junk is another's treasure."
Don't be afraid to fail miserable at engineering, and expect to make some ugly shit. Trash what you hate and keep what you love. When you're done - hang it, plant it, stake it, set it, or prop it up for the world to see and be proud of your creation.
* Tinkering means trying to build something that "works," as if you were a child messing around with tools and gadgets you've found in your parent's workshop, shed, junk drawer, or garage. If you didn't have that experience, now's your chance.
