I have been mentioning the word upcycling a few times in recent posts.. so what does it mean? Good question – I think it is the process of transforming something old and/or reaching the end of it’s lifespan into something new, adding value to the original item through the transformation.
An amazing day took place on twitter yesterday #NationalUpcyclingDay. It was truly inspirational!! Trending for part of the day at number 1 on twitter, what an amazing achievement by Gumtree and partners. Max McMurdo took over Gumtree’s twitter account sharing stories and tips.
Plus Ecochic Interiors, Makedoandmend, Remade in Britain each tweeted an A-Z list relating to upcycling. read more here.
I have set up a NationalUpcyclingDay Pinterest Board, pinning images shared on twitter. I have not yet, and may never quite, manage to pin all images shared – there is so much to see!! If you would like to become a pinner to the group board follow me on pinterest and drop me a message so I can add you:)
I shared tutorials relating to upcycling, you can see them all plus more below:-
Lovely ideas! My sister and I recently decided to gather all the old and useless clothing out of our families' closets and make some recycling and up-cycling. As both of us need to make some decoration changes or renovate some clothes, we've decided to plan few 'crafty' weekends. So we are in search of good ideas now. Thank you for your post, love your ideas and tutorials!
