Upcycle Projects

As I look around blogland(is that a word?) I see so many wonderful and crafty projects that convert old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. I recently ran across some projects that fall into this category and I would like to share them with you. Some of them you may have upcycled yourself and others might provide new ideas. Enjoy!

This first set is for the birds. Won't they like this for a house?

 This would be a great project to do with the kids!

 I have used these graters for many ideas, but not jewelry. Hummmm! Might have to consider this!

 Now there is a great way to use those blue jeans that are "too" big for you since you lost weight!

These spoons are a great idea for the succulents. How adorable is that!

How adorable are these old boots as planters? I have several of these!

 These cut up suitcases are great as shelving!

 These watering cans make a great fountain. I can almost here the sound of the water flowing down.
Don't spend money on sprinklers that don't work when all you need is an old soda or water bottle.

Now if you are really ambitious, why not bath tub couches?

An one of my favorites - a piano as a bookcase - who know?

I hope you enjoyed seeing all of these upcycled projects. Maybe they provided you with some new inspiration!
