Upcycled Linky Party {39}

Hey did you sneak a peak at last week's upcycled linky party projects?  There were several fun Valentine's Day projects linked up as you can imagine.  But with a few tweaks to this one from Little Brags, it is just perfect for Easter.  I'm such a sucker for a cute little bunny, be sure to swing by her blog to see all the "junk" finds she used in her Bunny Kisses Vignette:


And if that li'l bunny doesn't get you in the mood for spring, this one should.  The bushcrafter came up with an excellent way to decorate and reuse plastic containers, I love the colors:


In honor of the olympics, this week's shop feature comes from Books Etc. These cute little envelopes are made from old book pages:


Now on to the Upcycled Linky Party #39.  Here's the run down on the rules:

1.  Feel free to link up no more than one upcycled tutorial that you created and one upcycled item from your shop each week.
2.  Please don't link up the same items or blog posts as in previous weeks, let's keep it fresh.
3.  Follow Love 2 Upcycle by email or Google connect.
4.  This is a party so socialize!  Visit at least one shared link and leave a meaningful comment or "favorite" it if it is an Etsy shop item.  It would be nice if you followed them as well, but it is not required.
5.  Please keep it family friendly and upcycled!  We reserve the right to remove any links that aren't appropriate.

Upcycled Linky Party {38}

Happy happy Monday!  You know what time it is....If you didn't have a chance to check out Last Week's Upcycled Linky Party, here are a few of the highlights (and, of course, I'm going with a Valentine's Day theme):

I totally heart this homemade wrapping paper made from fabric and fused plastic.  I think I found my 2014 holiday gift wrap theme thanks to Gina's Craft Corner!  Just need to start saving up my cereal bags.


I love these sweet heart shaped hand warmers from Uniquely UK.  It seems that even those of us living in the "warmer" southern parts of the United States still have have some chilly winter weather ahead, so I'm definitely whipping up a few:


This week's shop feature is for those of you who have a great love of horses!  This refinished vintage horse head wall hanging from Through the Doggy Door is a wonderful color, don't you think?

Hey, hey!! It's time for another Upcycled Linky Party.  There was some pretty awesome projects linked up last week so be sure to check it out if you missed it.  Here are few highlights....

I love the colors in this scrap wood key holder AND that it's made from wood flooring leftovers, clever.   Check out how she made it on the Reduce, Reuse, Renewed blog.
This tutorial for a felted wintry bag has me inspired to go dig up some wool sweaters from Goodwill.  Check out the full details at Gina's Craft Room.



This week's shop feature comes from Once Upon A Firefly.  Isn't this just the sweetest tassel made from a salt shaker

Upcycled Linky Party {36}

Welcome to another fabulously upcycled Monday.  Just in case you missed all the fantastic ways to store your pens/pencils in last week's Upcycled Linky Party, I thought I'd throw in one more this week.  Buttons and Paint is at it again with this fun little Capri Sun Pencil Pouch.  Check out the full DIY and make one of your own:


You've all seen those T-shirt quilts, right?  Well, I love this little spin on the concept by Vicky Meyers.  She's taken her hubbies old striped work shirts and created a pretty nifty little design for her quilt.  Be sure to click through to see the full quilt photos:



This week's shop feature comes to us from Little Vintage Chest.  This is such a sweet little print on old book pages.

Upcycled Linky Party {35}

Maybe it's because we are three weeks into the new year and it's about time for all of our New Year's resolutions to begin slipping to the wayside that I'm attracted to the pencil pots that were linked up to last week's Upcycled Linky Party.  Where else shall we put all the pens and pencils that we are using to keep all those lists of things that we are supposed to be doing in the new year, right?

Buttons and Paint always brings us some fabulous DIY projects and this week was no different when she shows us how to make a super quick wooden pencil pot made from a large branch:


How about this version of a pencil pot that doesn't look at all like a pencil pot?  Reinvent and Upcycle shows us not only how to upcycle a mason jar into a fancy pencil pot but gives us a pretty way to keep our pens from getting lost!


This week's shop feature is super yummy!  Check out these sweet Starburst Headbands from La Alicia:
