Christmas Tree Wall Sticker by Chocovenyl

'Christmas Tree' fabric wall sticker is the newest addition to Chocovenyl's Woodland collection. The beautiful tree is based on the original watercolors illustration by Ko-ko-ko. It's a perfect solution for hallways and apartment spaces where you cannot accommodate a real Christmas tree. To add more cheer to the holidays, decorate the Christmas tree with bubbles stickers which are included in the set.

These wall stickers can adhere to almost any surface and can be moved around many times without causing any damage to the walls. The tree comes in two different sizes with birds and decorations on separate sheets which can be stored after the holidays and replaced with the woodland creatures like owls, bears etc. available to buy from their website.

3D Sculptures by Bordalo Segundo

I recently stumbled across these amazing sculptures by Bordalo Segundo a Portuguese street artist who uses garbage for his artwork. He transforms the abandoned trash of the streets such as wires, plastic sheets, tires into these colorful collages on a wood stand base. Bordalo exceptional work truly makes an ugly and a forgotten corner into a beautiful street art work often spray painted in vivid colors. His work is not only about recycle, "but also a critique of the world we live in, where we often have nice things, which are based on junk without realizing it."
