Planning some organizing projects for the new year? Well, here's a decidedly glamorous way to store smaller items.....made from upcycling a few decidedly unglamorous items: pickle jars! Luzia Pimpinella came up with this creative and inexpensive storage option.
You know you're committed to upcycling when you keep a collection of burnt-out Christmas lights. Amanda at Mommy is Coocoo does, and her lights have finally found their second life as a colorful Christmas wreath.
Lisa thought she'd found acorns on a walk with her family, but she had "never seen anything like them." She and her girls gathered a stroller full and brought them home. After Lisa turned her "acorns" into a gorgeous metallic wreath, a few sharp-eyed readers at Mabey She Made It identified them as eucalyptus seed pods. Whatever they are, they look amazing on Lisa's front door!
Debbie at Painted Therapy learned a valuable lesson the hard way: "never put wheels on tables; kids will always use them as trains." After the untimely derailment of her train coffee table, Debbie went searching in the garage for a replacement. She turned this hand-me-down piano bench into a (stationary) coffee table of beauty!
After being inspired by other projects online, Luzia decided to "Pimp my Gurkenglas." (Translation: turn her used pickle jars into something awesome.) She shows us how her empty jars became golden-animal-topped button storage over at Luzia Pimpinella.
Ashley at Bigger Than the Three of Us just might be a genius. When a window makeover left her with a bunch of used blinds, she turned them into a sunburst mirror. This may be the first time in the history of ever that mini-blinds have looked so cool!
Kara at Happy Go Lucky shows us how to address our overflowing scented candle collection with a genius strategy--she melts them down to create new layered candles! Decluttering and free layered candles? Yes, please!
Here's a fun craft just in time for Halloween from Claire of A Little Claireification. It's something you probably already have all the supplies you need on hand, starting with the empty toilet paper rolls.
Over at Blah to Tada, Claire came up with an inexpensive and eye catching way to display earrings. It's a great idea for anyone who sells jewelry--especially if they want to keep their expenses down at craft fairs and other venues, since it starts with a very easy-to-find material: cardboard.
