Upcycle and repurpose

Published December 29, 2015, by Stina Axelson

There are so many creative ways to upcycle things that we throw away on a daily basis. Sort through your closets or recycling bin and create items yourself and at the same time make a positive impact on the environment.

What may look like an empty cardboard box or a finished egg carton could actually be a stylish bedside lamp waiting to happen! Instead of tossing out those retired boxes, cans, and bottles, give them a new life, by turning them into useful and beautiful household items.

In with the old and make it new!

If you’re the type of person who hates to throw anything away, then turn your unwanted items into gorgeous DIY projects. After all, one person’s trash is another’s treasure, right? We’ll admit to expecting some great things in this category – furniture, clothes, pet accessories, toys, teen bedrooms, and gadgets,– if you have a talent for taking the unused, unloved and unwanted and turning it into an amazing creation – then we want to see it.
