Throwing away trash is so yesterday. The new trend is “making the old new” and involves creating new things from waste products. We have called it “Upcycling”. We have put together everything you need to know.
YOU CAN ALWAYS MAKE SOMETHING NEW
The idea is quite simple: take something old and make it into something new, whether it is plastic bottles or old sheets. You can use almost anything- the possibilities are endless! For instance, a few wooden pallets can make a bed, old car tires can make a bicycle stand and old silverware can be transformed into clothes hooks.
Online you can find a variety of “Do it Yourself” blogs with creative ideas and instructions. On Pinterest, under the heading “Upcycling”, there are a plethora of ideas. If you prefer to find your inspiration from something more tangible, there are plenty of Upcycling books, as well! Let yourself be inspired!
