Awesome ways to upcycle and reimagine your stuff
REPURPOSING & UPCYCLING IDEAS WORTH A TRY!
Upcycling is the art of reusing unwanted items by converting them into something better. Repurposing is taking one thing and reusing it as something else. And they’re both easier to do than you might think! By reimagining our stuff, we can help give products a new or second life.
So, if you’re looking for a little inspiration or a weekend DIY project, here are some clever little ideas to get you thinking!

Warning: jam jars should not contain hot drinks as this can cause the glass to crack.
There are literally millions of ways to upcycle, recycle and repurpose creatively. Enjoy making the most of your stuff by giving those things you might want to throw away another lease of life. And of course, Sugru always comes in handy when doing this!
