Upcycled fall crafts

Upcycled fall crafts

Instead of going out and buying all the materials you would need for a project, use items you already have! That’s what upcycling is all about. For these three crafts we used wine bottles, their corks, jars we had lying around, leftover paint and a few smaller items to garnish with.

Upcycled Bottles

painted wine bottles

Save some wine bottles and don’t throw away the corks! (You’ll need those, too.) For this first craft, all you need are bottles with the labels removed, paint and whatever else you decide to decorate with.

For one bottle, we used stencils to write and then added an ombre effect with light green and white paint. Another has a tree with fall leaves painted on and pebbles at the bottom. The last has maroon paint with blue sponge painted on the bottom.







cork magnet mini planters

Use a small knife to carve out half of the inside of the corks and place some dirt at the bottom. Put a small piece of a succulent with a little water and then add more dirt. Glue a magnet to the back and you have a cute, earthy refrigerator magnet.

button jars

For this craft, we used leftover paint from previous projects and painted the inside of the jars. Next, we added some twine with a button around it. You could even put a small tealight candle inside.

This craft project was featured in the Fall 2015 issue of inMagazine.
