frugality meets creativity.

a town in lithuania in grave financial circumstances requested the help of designer Jolanta Šmidtienė to assist in injecting some holiday atmosphere during the festive season...on a budget. 40000 recycled bottles and zip-ties later and the town of Kaunas has a beautiful, glowing christmas tree attracting attention all over the globe. 

it's amazing what our minds are capable of creating when presented with obstacles.
