the ReFab Diaries: upcycled plastic
Showing posts with label upcycled plastic

If you feel good when you spend $99c on a re-usable tote made from recycled plastic bottles ... you'll feel GREAT when you make these! Fused plastic is durable and easy to make yourself.


Especially if you're currently hiding a shameful, embarrassing number of plastic bags somewhere in your home.  Check out this tutorial from Dana at Made then go upcycle a Target bag or 6.  


Above is a different take on the tutorial - personalized lunch totes care of Made by Lex (blog no longer exists). For another set of instructions on how to upcycle plastic film or plastic grocery bags into stronger items, head to Instructables

I don't advocate going out to buy plastic piping to make this wreath. But if you see it being thrown out, what a great way to upcycle it! Besides loving how this looks, I also love that it would be versatile from year to year. You could easily change the ornaments, colors etc.

I can also see the obvious paper-towel / cardboard tube upcycle option.  Full set of instructions at Today's Nest.
