So today, I'm going to showcase some of the items on Folksy that are just that - something old turned into something new!!
First up are these fantastic planters made from old vegetable sacks! http://www.folksy.com/items/825777-re-cycled-planters Would look really cool on a balcony or patio!!
Next are these funky coasters made from old magazines! http://www.folksy.com/items/1054965-recycled-magazine-coasters
Now the next items are really good fun to make! I made a few myself last year and gave them to my local Cancer Research Charity shop and they went down very well!!
The next items are a really cool way of using up the metal cases that you have lying around after you've used all those tea lights!!
Here is a great way of reusing all those empty bottles that you might still have around after xmas!! http://www.folksy.com/items/1120317-Recycled-Spitfire-Beer-Bottle-Clock
Finally I want to share something recycled from my own shop that I set up to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Care. Its a pretty green leaf bracelet made from an old broken necklace! http://www.folksy.com/items/729497-GREEN-LEAF-BRACELET?shop=yes
I hope that you like this little selection of recycled items and will maybe look at some of your old, unused items arounds the house in a new light and get creative and re-use them into something useful!!
Until next time! x
