Engraved Custom Bollo Tie (made entirely with recycled materials)

I made these custom bollo ties of my dog using entirely recycled/ reuse materials.

I engraved this design onto the pearled acrylic sheet that was left over from a photoshoot at my job. For the magenta fill, I diluted regular craft paint with some alcohol in lieu of paint pens (worked great). The silver encasing and tie tips came from a bollo-tie-making-kit that was donated to my local creative reuse store.
I’m always grateful to create things from materials that were otherwise on their way to the landfill.
