Glass Bottle and Wood Vase

We love upcycles of all different materials, but glass and wood are two of our favourites. It should come as no surprise that we absolutely adore this glass bottle and wood vase! The design is simple and easy to replicate, and it’s a perfect use for those glass bottles you’ve been collecting.

Traffic Sign Chairs

These traffic sign chairs were created from cast off traffic signs and old, school chair frames. The style of these chairs was inspired by origami and the resulting design is edgy, urban and cool. Better still these chairs are comfortable and perfect for outside use – the traffic signs were made to be outdoors!

Burlap Pumpkins

Why burlap pumpkins? Because October means pumpkin season. It’s the run up to Halloween and officially fall. This year we wanted to include pumpkins in our upcycled Halloween decor. We were super excited to think of burlap as the upcycled material to use!

Old Tyre Sculptures

These old tyre sculptures created by Korean artist Yong Ho Ji are next level. Created from shreds of old tyres, Yong Ho Ji’s art features larger-than-life creatures, mythical beasts, human-animal hybrids and ferocious animal species. Some of these old tyre sculptures are up to 9 feet high! Especially impressive given that tyres aren’t the easiest material to work with.
