A well known item is a plastic spoon. You’ll see them everywhere. And like most things, after use they get thrown away. Luckily there are more and more creative people that know what to do with trash. Like award winning designer Yaroslav Olenev.
And it’s a beautiful DIY idea. Take the spins, cut them of, insert them into slits cut around a large water jug and add a light kit [see tutorial]. The result is a stunning design that mimics the look of a pineapple or pinecone. So before you throw stuff away, think about what you can do with it. A great example of trash-to-treasure!

To keep upcycleDZINE running, I’m asking you for your support.
Your contribution will allow me to:
– meet the hosting costs
– upgrade to keep track of traffic increases
– add new content, and keep improving the older content
– add new functionalities to this site

Again, all contributions will be reinvested into the aforementioned associated costs of running this blog and will help ensure the ongoing quest for quality upcycle design.
Your kindness and generosity will be greatly appreciated and will give me the motivation to continue.
