Let's rethink our waste and give it a second life. Upcycling is all about being as creative as possible. It's reusing an item to make it new and improved through painting, repairing, adding new upholstery, etc.
Here are a few ideas to get inspired to start a project of your own.
- Glass and plastic jars are infinitely useful. Reuse glass jars to make a DIY herb garden and more!
2. Cut plastic bags into smaller pieces to make "plarn", plastic yarn, for crocheting. Make your own plarn grocery tote bag.
3. Learn the art of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery by repairing fractures in powder gold lacquer. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object's history, which adds to its beauty.
