First off I should explain what I mean by ‘local.’ Usually when I do one of these round-ups I get most of the ideas and images and by searching on Pinterest. But this time round I decided to do something different… all the ideas featured in this edition are from blogs I follow, and not Pinterest.
“I have found so many uses for old woollen blankets. I even made a coat!”
Indeed she did .. and it’s awesome!
What a great new life for an old woollen blanket. It looks so cozy and warm, and must have saved Abby a pretty penny compared to the cost of buying the fabric new (or a new coat!)
Here are some other brilliant upcycling ideas I have spied on your blogs recently:
* Talia Christine's awesome letter holder DIY (made from a thrifted spice rack.)
So handy! And a very helpful tutorial. Now every time I go op-shopping I have my eyes peeled for spice racks.
I especially love the stripey hood
Aren’t they just delightful?
And finally, this last one comes from my son, with something he made at kindy…
*Noah’s car made from recycled wood scraps and milk bottle lids:
They’re starting this young with this recycling business these days.
I’m so glad Abby commented last time around with a link to her coat (I follow her blog, but somehow had missed that post.)
… So if you have made something by reusing or repurposing something else then please share by commenting here… You never know I may feature it in a future instalment of RR, and then you’d be ‘famous’ (he he) like these people!
Or perhaps you’ve seen a great idea on another blog or Pinterest… I would love to hear about that too!
