The local museum here in my town had a competition earlier this year where people could enter their best upcycle projects. The contest entries are now on display at the museum and there are some very cool stuff in there!
Here are some of my favorites!
Soda can decorated mirror. Now, making this thing could actually be a good reason to drink a lot of soda. This looks super-cool! And, uuh, sharp… Very sharp…
Pepsi Can chandelier.
And if you haven’t been hoarding cans maybe you have some old coins laying around. This one you could actually put up in a home AND get away with it. Looks very legit! I think the bottom part is an old bowl?
Kitchen towel dress, very cute! And looks so easy to do!
Laundry basket lamp and some pillows and rugs.
Button decorated detachable collar.
Doily bag. I want to do something similar.
Even though I generally dislike refurbishments where antique furniture gets a makeover that take them light years away from their original look, I can’t help but love the color combo of this rococo-revival chair.
Left-over pieces of fabric, scrap metal and beads create a very petty and decorative pattern on a simple tote bag. I think one strap is an old belt! I find this very inspiring and will definitely try something similar myself!
