Upcycling — 10 Cool Things To Do With Your Old Stuff

What better way to get into the spirit of Earth Day than to make something totally new with a piece of junk you’ve had lying around! Here are our 10 favorite DIY upcycling projects on the web.

T-shirt scarf

t-shirt-scarf-8-sm

Ninth and Bird

This nifty little scarf comes together with strips of old t-shirts… would make a great gift (hint hint).


 

Plant Name Tags Out of Corks

Plant-Name-Tags-Out-of-Corks

The Happier Homemaker

You know the drill … the little plastic plant tags that come with your seedlings can end up looking like litter. Here’s an easy way to add a bit of whimsy to your garden. Plus, it’s incentive for drinking more wine ;-).


 

Nightstand into Child’s Kitchen Set

Nightstand-Child-Kitchen-Set

The Farmers Nest

This one is a bit of a project, but if you’re handy and you’re hankering for a kitchen set for your kiddo, check this out.


 

Ladder into Bookshelf

Ladder-into-Bookshelf

Dandelion Express

Brilliant. Brings the whole “rustic industrial” feel into small spaces in a super useful way.


 

Old Corks into Stamps

Old-Corks-into-Stamps

Michele Made Me

Yet another ingenious way to use old corks … and even more incentive–you get the drift.


 

An Old Window Frame into a Chalkboard

Old-Window-Frame-into-Chalkboard

A Diamond in the Stuff

How about this? Who knew that the old banged up window frame in your back yard could actually get you organized!


 

Old Denim into Coasters

Old-Denim-into-Coasters

Wool and Wine

Another great gift idea … coasters made out of old jeans.


 

Party Animal Candles

Party-Animal-Candles

The Sweetest Occasion

What kid (or, lets face it, kid at heart) wouldn’t love a gilded toy animal on their cake?


 

Old Rake as a Wine Glass Holder

Old-Rake-Wine-Glass-Holder

Orchard Girls

I love the idea of bringing the garden inside for this creative wine glass rack.


 

Dresser Drawers as shelves

Dresser-Drawers-shelves

Shades of Grey on Remodelaholic

So simple, yet such a great use of space. These remind me of “window boxes,” only cooler.
