There always innovation when it comes to the art of Upcycling! What’s more, upcycling is cost effective and enables you to get your creative juices flowing. Want to add some cute accents to your home, be good to the earth and save money? Check out these super chic upcycling ideas:
1. Orange Peel Candle
So simple and it smells so good… all you’ll need for this is just half an orange peel and some olive oil! Once the Orange peel is separated from the Orange, pour olive oil into the orange peel half until it is 3/4 full. Simply light the inward protrusion of the orange peel and there you have it! An all-natural, eco-friendly, super-citrus and cost effective candle! It can’t get any better.
2. Cork Coasters
This is a great one for wine lovers. It is also a great way to hold on to memories. Save the cork from your favorite evening out on the town or from your favorite bottles of wine. Compile the corks into a design and mount them onto tile or slate squares to create your very own coasters- full of laughs and memories!
3. Custom Coat Hanger
Do you have old spoons or have you ever spotted some at a garage sale? Don’t let them go to waste! Bend them, flatten them, engrave them and mount them onto wooden boards to create a chic, customized coat hanger. You can create a spot for each of your family members to hang their coat while reusing old goods and saving lots of money. What’s not to love!
