Just in time for this weekend’s big game, here’s some upcycled decor from Drugstore Divas. They created a foot-ball themed utensil holder from an empty soup can!
I found a very cool upcycling project at Crafty Journal, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Noreen used empty soda cans to make a simple string of lights more festive for the day of love.
Over at Today’s Creative Blog, Kim shares an upcycling project that she did in an effort to beautify and organize her desk area, this month. Needing a way to organize some of her office supplies on top of the desk, she decided to reuse some empty paint and food cans.
Here’s a darling little craft that Lisa of Mabey She Made It shared at Made From Pinterest. It all started with a favorite pair of socks….that were tragically separated on a vacation. And this was such a great pair of socks that even though there was only one left, “I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away,” Lisa confesses.
“I like to use up every bit of “otherwise-trash” that I possibly can,” confesses Gwen on her blog, You Can Call Me Gwen. She goes on to explain, “This project uses plastic water bottle caps, small pieces of fabric, and leftover bits of embroidery thread and ribbon which may otherwise have been part of a landfill.”
After-Christmas-blues getting you down? Well, Valentine’s Day is coming up, so if you need a little pick-me-up from the January blahs, I suggest doing a Valentine craft, like this cute one made from baby food jars by Courtney of Crafts by Courtney.
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.
