Save More: Up-Cycle Like a Pro

Let's be honest: we all own some items we just don't know what to do with, but we can't seem to part with them. Well, we have some good news: upcycling! If you are looking for ways to repurpose, refresh, or even save a few bucks, upcycling allows you to turn those random items into works of art! Whether you keep them for yourself, or give them as a gift, your upcycled crafts will truly be one-of-a-kind.

If you're feeling crafty, here's some inspiration to get you started.

Cracked or Chipped Cups & Mugs
If you've got some old drinkware that simply can't be used anymore, you don't have to part with them! These items still have character, and can have a different purpose. Consider using these as pots for a variety of plants. Big or small, these new "pots" still have a lot of love to give!

Old Jars and Bottles
Who doesn't love a good glass jar? If you've got a few lying around, consider using them as storage! Money, seashells, chocolates, string lights, notes and memories… the list goes on. Not to mention, they would look great in all areas of the home.

Wooden Pallets
No matter how big or small, consider your old wooden pallets a canvas! Grab some paint and let your imagination run wild. From the American Flag, to colorful flowers, to holiday-themed designs, these pallets can be converted into outdoor - and even indoor - decor!

Old Windows
While these might seem as though their time is up, it's only just beginning! Those slots you used to peer through can now serve as spaces for your favorite memories. Whether you're looking to repurpose or follow the Farmhouse decor trend, this would be a beautiful piece in any home!

Old Jeans
It's time to spice up your wardrobe! If you own some denim that is no longer in your go-to pile, turn them into something you'll want to grab over and over again. From patchwork, to acrylic paints, the possibilities are endless. Make your very own statement piece!

There's so many different ways you can turn your old belongings into something fun. Don't be afraid to think outside the box - and get crafty!
