Make do – Upcycle!

Hello everyone!

You’ve probably already heard the saying “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure”, but have you ever wondered in what way this could be true?

Today I am going to share with you some of my own upcycling projects, and I hope to inspire you to create some of your own. Here they are:

  • Decoupage boxes

Turn old wine crates and wooden boxes into gorgeous chests for all your treasured trinkets.

  • Denim Shorts

Cut off the desired length from your jeans to make these pretty shorts. Make sure not to cut off too much so that you will be able to create the turn-ups.

  • Floral and denim haversack

If you have far too many pairs of shorts already, why not make this haversack instead? I followed a tutorial by “coolirpa” from Youtube.

  • BB-8 necklace from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I painted two wooden beads with acrylic paint and  then varnished them later. I used a wire to thread a tiny glass bead, and then passed both ends of the wire through the two wooden beads. For the loop, just bend the wire on top and wind the remaining wire around it.

I hope you enjoyed scrolling through my upcycling projects.

Now grab a pair of scissors, glue and a big pack of paint and start upcycling!
