UPCYCLING!

The weather is warming up and we are all shedding some layers of clothes, as well as stored negative karma. Speaking of karma, in this post we are going to talk about ways to reinvent your currently owned items, rather than going out and spending your hard-earned-cash on brand new materials by UPCYCLING!!!

:::There are probably an infinite number of ways to do so…here are some of the Green Graffiti ways:::

DYING NEW COLORS!

LIKE BRAND NEW! 

Also, you can reinvent a hula hoop, by wrapping it in many strips of old fabric.

Or take a plain cream sweater and turn it into a rainbow explosion.

You can use dyes available at an arts & crafts store or you can try all natural dyes like

tumeric powder, that makes a gorgeous yellow tone and is totally non-toxic.

Re-make your shoes with a little leather paint or spray paint can work too.

It could be something simple like Y Project’s pocket-cut-out jeans:

Y project

Or tie your favorite gold top as a hair bow a la The Corner Store.

Or get out your paint & sharpies a la @yokosnoopy

Sick of the color of your guitar?

don’t sell your precious six-string…CHANGE IT!

It’s not plain wood anymore…

Or you can paint your purse!
