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.

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.
