Monopoly was my favorite game when I was growing up. When I was looking for artists for my craft gallery, I came across some interesting works of art that incorporated old Monopoly games. But even more intriguing was the ideas described in the video below. The hosts show how they picked up a used monopoly game at a yard sale for a couple of bucks.
They turned the little player objects into charm bracelets. They decoupage gift boxes with the monopoly dollars. They framed the Monopoly board and made it into a table top. Lots of ideas here of things to make and sell from just a few bucks investment and some creativity.
