You know how the saying goes: reduce, reuse, recycle. Well, what about doing all three at once? Upcycling does just that. By taking otherwise useless or broken objects and repurposing them into functional furniture, art, or garden decorations, you’re reducing the number of new items you’d buy, you’re reusing perfectly good materials, and you’re recycling whatever material you can’t use.
At Insteading we are all about minimizing our waste and being resourceful, and upcycling is a huge part of that. So whether you’re creating art out of used tires or turning an old, dilapidated swing set into a new chicken coop, we’ve compiled some great projects to keep you busy all year!
