10 recycled/upcycled craft ideas

Upcycling/recycling/reusing…whatever you call it, taking something you’d otherwise discard and turning it into a treasure is definitely tres chic right now. I do it every time I create a dessert pedestal, and I’m always looking for fun, new ways to upcycle things I already own. Here are 10 of my favorite ideas/tutorials for turning your trash into treasure!
