Upcycling

Upcycling.  It’s all the rage.  Want proof?  Just take a click through the internet this week.

Curbly posted on recycled kitchenware lighting, via the fantastic garblog Green Upgader.

The Temas Blog did a video roundup of Brazilian trashion.  This clip of looks fashioned from drink can tabs is my favorite.

Wooster Collective found not one, but two posts worth of fur coat upcycling by street artist Neozoon.

And the crafty mavens of Etsy shared all kinds of DIY upcycling for Valentine’s.  I love this men’s shirt turned party dress.

Also, the heart jean skirt is literally badass.
