Get the little golden book out of the attic and make it into a fun clock that is full of memories!

This book clock is easy to make with a mini quartz clock movement. Simply remove the book "clock hands" and drill a hole for the clock movement, decorate the top and bottom with 16 gauge annealed wire.

Add beads and glitter, then insert the clock movement which has a self hanger so no need to make a separate hanger!

Can you make a chic dress out of leggings and a t-shirt? The answer is … YES, you can!

This is probably one of the most exciting DIY's I've done so far. For a long time, I had this idea in my head, and now I finally tried it out. Of course, I filmed the experiment, so you have something of it. ;)

The funny thing about the upcycling idea is that the leggings become the top and the t-shirt the skirt. How I did it exactly, you'll see step by step in the video. Incidentally, it's a super fast DIY with just 5 steps.

It all began with a parabolic radiator with a beautiful brass dish found on a French flea market. Brass is the perfect "lampshade" to create a warm golden light. So it had to be a lamp. This industrial/steampunk table lamp was made from:

  • The desk lamp has been made from an old parabolic heater.
  • The dish is solid brass and the base is made out of bakelite.
  • The head can be oriented and it can be hanged on a wall.

After a thorough cleaning of the brass and the bakelite base, the electrical resistance in the center of the dish has been replaced by a brand new electrical system with an elegant fiber-covered cable.

An Edison style bulb as been chosen to reinforce the golden light given by the brass parabola.The final lamp has a tilting head and the base can be hanged on a wall, so the lamp is either a desk lamp or a wall unit.It is a unique piece ready to complete your home decor!

I made these jewels and home accessories using recycled paper because I care about the environment. So much plastic pollution, so many forests destroyed, why not reusing paper.

It took me days to complete every piece, they are made by hand one at a time. In the beginning, the hardest part was the research of every material and process for made every design the more ecological possible. Search and learn for natural dyes, recycled metals for the jewelry.

Slow made every part of the design process, I have many things happen at the same time, some pieces are slow dried meanwhile the handmade paper sheet are pressed and I'm in the table cutting new designs. But I love it!

When you stop thinking of a Christmas tree as a holiday decoration and instead see it as a reusable material waiting to be reworked, beautiful things can happen.

I'm determined to creatively approach what others view as waste, so I challenged myself to upcycle my Christmas tree this year.

This beautiful table runner is comprised of the branches of my Christmas tree! I stripped the branches of their needles, washed them, and wove them together with hemp twine - and strung some decorative beads as well for extra oomph.

I made this lamp from an old church candlestick and an old black straw hat transformed it into the lampshade. I found this hat after an old lady forgot it on a church candlestick.

It makes me think of these old ladies you meet at the church on Sunday mornings, all dressed up, in dark colors.

It is a tall and elegant lamp that will find its place in the living room or on a side table in the bedroom.

I moved into a new house with a small South facing conservatory. It was looking a bit bare and could do with some greenery.

Unfortunately, I’m rubbish at looking after house plants successfully. I usually kill them within a year. Plus the fact, in Summer it can reach temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius in there.

So I decided to make some some that didn’t require any care or water. The small succulent plants are pinecones painted green.

Materials: Cereal packet card, corrugated cardboard "mache”, adhesive and acrylic paint.

This lamp was made out of an upcycled old wine wood box. The lamp can be hanged by the wire as a pendant lamp or be transformed into a table lamp.

The black fabric electric wire snakes through the box.

What can you make from a piece of heating pipe, a steam iron, a kitchen utensil and other shiny metal parts? How about a hornbill?

Since a couple of years, I've been making objects out of metal parts form all sorts of machines and devices. This is one of my first projects and still one of my favorites. It was a nice challenge to get all parts connected without showing screws or bolts and nuts.

I'm always looking for vintage patterns and I scale them to the scale of the box to stick them on and give the box this vintage effect. This what we call upcycling.

But, what is Upcycling?

Recycling is the use of an object at the end of its life for the same use as the original one. Glass bottles are recycled into glass bottles.

Upcycling reuses an object in another function, it is a recycling from the "top".

It's not customization, a redesigned chest of drawers remains a chest of drawers.

Upcycling changes the function of the object, a metal box becomes a lamp, we also talk about the diversion of objects.

The ecological benefits are significant, reducing the volume of waste and avoiding the use of natural resources. It is also a creative work that makes it possible to invent unique objects because it is sometimes difficult to find a large quantity of objects to reuse.

Upcycling is practiced whatever the waste, fabric, paper, wood, furniture….. the principle being to reduce our waste, we do our shopping in the garbage!

Because every action counts, many of us take from our garbage cans or set up recycling facilities.

Upcycling reduces our carbon footprint, each purchase of upcycled items is an ethical and virtuous purchase

I transform:

  • Bottles and jars in vases
  • Books in trees
  • Jars in lamps
  • Metal cans and cans in lamps…
