Friday 24th of June marks the second annual National Upcycling Day here in Britain. Started by our friends over at Gumtree, it’s a great excuse to get out any old bits and pieces that could do with a some TLC and a fresh lick of paint to give them a new lease of life. We’ve had a look back at some of our best projects over the years and rounded up our favourites. The crafty crème de la crème, if you will. From chairs to storage jars, we’ve got every level of skill and every room in your home covered. Happy upcycling, Homemakers!
We get some cushion crafting expertise from Anne Baxter of Justhands-on.tv, and discover wonderful ways to experiment with them. “I’ve sewn all my life, prolifically for the last 25 years, and there’s always room for another cushion. With a wealth of patchwork and appliqué techniques and designs to try, a cushion is a manageable size and a marvellous vehicle to experiment with.”
Our favourite springtime celebration is only round the corner, and if you’re looking for an Easter craft project to keep you busy over the week, look no further! From baking & cardmaking to crochet & sewing, there’s something here for every type of crafter this season.
