Saturday Seven - Upcycle (The Final Installment)

The saga draws to a close...

1. Cakestands - I have been scouring thrift stores for white vases ever since I first saw this tutorial from Design*Sponge. This is what to do with that plate that you've been hanging onto for sentimental reasons that no longer has a matching family.

2. Paint Caddy - Made from a milk carton, this caddy is the perfect size for little ones. This tute from Maya*made also includes intructions for an easel.

3. Paper Beads - A new take on the paper bead from Folding Trees uses any old scraps you've got lying around, a paper punch and some glue. Simple and sweet.

4. Book Handbag - Not for those opposed to ripping apart a book, this video from Curbly shows you how to turn an old hardcover into a new handbag.

5. Soup Can Organizer - I love the simple retro look of these soup cans used to organize crafts, office supplies or even kitchen utensils! From Laissezfaire.

6. Shark Bites & More - Another great idea from plum pudding! Get the kids involved with decorating and renaming these common spices and let me know if it encourages them to eat their veggies! Also a great alternative to drowning the healthy stuff in butter or cheese.

7. Pumpkin Coffee Canister - Hello, Adorable! Save your coffee canisters and take a peek at this tutorial from Crafty Daisies to make it into a bucket for, say, trick-or-treating. I'm sure you could modify the design to make an Easter Basket or everyday toy tote.
