I want YOUR suggestions!

     I wanted to start off by telling everyone I forgot to bring my camera back to Ball State, so when I go home this weekend for Spring Break (YAY) I will be sure to post my first tutorial! As I mentioned, it is a claw-foot bathtub that I converted into a love seat! In the mean time, I have been thinking about what people consider being ‘waste’ that could actually be upcycled.  I find myself thinking of something that could be reused, then the next second thinking that there is no other use for it. I have a proposition for you. Comment below an object you would like to be upcycled. I will pick one of your suggestions and get back with you guys after I have thought of a way to upcycle it!

A craft a day keeps the doctor away ... right?

Recycling and going green has been the message to consumers for a while now. DIY T.V. shows and craft stores are at an all time high. So what if you combine the two? You get upcycling! Upcycling is taking a used object and finding an alternative purpose for it. MiKrafty is all about DIY projects and upcycling. Throughout 30 days I will be posting the benefits of DIY projects and tutorials. Within next week I will post a tutorial about a tub I turn into a couch! By the end of 30 days I hope thinking of an alterative purpose for an object will become easier. Hopefully this blog will inspire you to upcycle.
