I recently went through my old ReadyMade magazines and was inspired to start a new feature - on upcycling! There are so many great ways to re-use the things around us. Hopefully you find some inspiration!
The first thing we’re looking at is one of the easiest things to upcycle - a plastic bottle! From soda bottles to milk bottles, I’m sure you have some sitting in your house somewhere. As you can see above, there are lots of fun things you can make, from cat planters to piggy banks! Click on the links below to see the tutorials.
My DIY for animal print cork board wall tiles for dorm or apartment living :)
Thanks for the submission shop-blvck-nostalgia (my, that seems impersonal)! Just a heads up to all of you interested in making this fabulous corkboard - the music in the video contains some adult language. Otherwise, the video is well-done, easy to follow and shop-blvck-nostalgia gives really helpful tips to create the finished product you want!
Here’s another fantastic concrete DIY, this time in the form of some super cute gemstones! Before they set, super strong magnets are popped in to create some truly unique magnets. Even better, AHIL has made a ‘You’re a gem’ notecard so that you can make these for someone special for Valentine’s Day!
