New Upcycle Ideas 680


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings! Welcome to another riveting and fun weekend of inspiring repurposed projects to make with things you may already have hanging around!

Yesterday, the newest stencils arrived on my doorstep! Whoop! So I’ll be doing photo shoots today, then getting creative with them!

Hinges stencil and Organic Coffee stencil by Funky Junk's Old Sign Stencils

But here’s a peek! I used the Hinges stencil as if it’s holding this slightly reworked Organic Coffee mug hooks sign together. Isn’t that fun?!

The hinges are life-sized so you can even use real screws if desired! 

Check out all the newest stencils HERE

So while I ramp up the creativity meter here, let’s check out some fabulous repurposed project features from last week’s post…

This is not an ancient artifact dug up from centuries ago. Wait to be mind-blown. This fantastic tutorial shares how to use a styrofoam take-out container and use it to create clay or concrete molds… with any stencil design! Goodness gracious. I have some advanced experimenting to do.
