Upcycling Love

Being in a never-ending crafting mode leads to some fun results. Rather than waste new materials and supplies, we usually goof around with whatever we can find around the house.  Call it upcycled, recycled, or repurposed, there's so much you can do with packaging instead of throwing it away. Since February is the month of love, I thought I'd show you some of the things we made that represent some things we love.

Spam!   I never tried Spam until I got married and now I'm hooked. 
I cut up the can and folded the edges under (with pliers) so they wouldn't be sharp. Then I coated it with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.  Once it was dry, I glued a pinback to it.  I'm actually pretty proud of this bit of geekery.





My incredible husband, Cricut Man, continues to amaze me with his cutting prowess on the Cricut.  He cut this cute Mickey Mouse out of a Diet Coke carton and it fit perfectly on top of this holiday ball shaped bottle.


If you haven't noticed yet, we LOVE our Diet Coke.  We realized we weren't the only ones when Cricut Man did the Diet Coke nativity and so many people wanted to buy one for themselves.  Our other love around this house is the Denver Broncos.  Put them both together and it's the most beautiful creation....brings a tear to my eye...
