DIY and Upcycled crafts can be so much fun to make together. Or perhaps even on your own. There is no need to toss things in the garbage or the recycling if you can give them a second life.
One of my kids is a natural at this. She always has been. I think it might actually be a generational thing, as in Generation Z seems to be naturally incline to care for the environment and reuse things a bit better than we ever did. That might be my observation.
Here are several of my favourite upcycled crafts to make. These would be perfect for the restless last few days of summer.

Upcycled teacup planters are so very cute and aesthetic. You can also turn them into adorable bird feeders. But, my favourite of all of these is the sweater box. I’m making a couple before the winter. Stay tuned for those photos soon.

Upcycling Can Be Simple
Upcycled crafts can be super simple. Sometimes, it’s as easy as turning your old t-shirts into pillows, or chopping up jeans, into cutoffs. Old clothing can often be repurposed into household items and, of course everyone has made something new out of Mason Jars at one point or another.
