Planning to throw away some old things? Not so fast! Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. Take an old tire for example. Tie a rope to it and hang it from a tree and now you have a swing!
Upcycling is often seen in art but many people have taken the idea into their homes. Below are just a few examples of what is possible.
Awesome candles made from old light bulbs.
Turn old picture frames into serving trays.
Broom made from a recycled bottle.
