Landscaper Challenge: Build a Vertical Garden

Vertical Gardens are great when space is limited. Some are attached directly to a wall or building, while others are free standing. Whatever type of vertical garden you decide to make, try and use as many recycled materials as you can, such as pallets and bottles like this design from the Brazilian design studio, Rosenbaum.

It’s also worth noting that this urban farm is part of a project to improve the lives of three women (a mother and two daughters) that live in a one bedroom home with an income of 200 Reais (130 US Dollars) a month. Landscapers design not only for aesthetic purposes, but they also strive to improve the quality of people’s lives through the use of space.

Special Effects Wizard Challenge: Make a Duct Tape Batman Mask

The costume makes the hero, the villain, the monster, or the magician and tells everything about a character in one glance. Your character is a canvas ready to be painted – now fill your costume full of carefully crafted details. Duct tape is a great household material that you can use to create your own masks and costumes.  Start by laying down strips of duct tape on a cutting mat and molding it into your desired shape!
