Experiments in Upcycling

I really love upcycling projects, it's terribly clever (not to mention budget saving) to make a wonderful product out of something that would otherwise be trash.

But to be honest with you- I don't feel like I do enough of these projects. I just don't think my brain naturally works that way. Most of the time I don't consider the possibilities of the everyday items I throw out.

So in an effort to change that, and to maybe not be such a craft store junkie (seriously I was there two times in one week recently), I've been saving PT and TP rolls up for a while now with no specific purpose in mind.

Today I'm playing around with them. And hopefully I'll come up with something. If I do I'll post a new project tutorial... if not I guess I'll post a new craft disaster story.

Either way I'll have at least given it a try instead of just throwing away/recycling those tubes.

I'm curious- Do you upcycle a lot when you craft? If so what types of materials do you use and what have you made?

Things that go bump in the night.

I just finished my entry in Plaid's Trick your Pumpkin contest.
