The Upcycling Contest!
Greetings, crafty Steemians! It's time for a new contest, so I decided that this week I would do a #needleworkmonday -inspired contest, largely inspired by @cryptocariad's neat upcycling project. It's time to get your craft on and upcycle!

How to Enter:
Make a project where you upcycle something. What's upcycling? From dictionary.com:
verb (used with object), up·cy·cled, up·cy·cling.
to process (used goods or waste material) so as to produce something that is often better than the original"
An excellent example is @cryptocariad's eyeglasses case, but you could do anything. Turn an old torn piece of clothing into new clothing. Turn scrap fabric into curtains or a draft dodger (a thing you stuff along the bottom of a drafty door to keep out the cold air in winter; I once made one with old socks). Turn pallets into one of the 10,892 project ideas on Pinterest. Make a bucket compost system with cat litter buckets. Make a birdhouse out of scrap wood. Crochet mats for homeless people to sleep on out of your stash of plastic grocery bags. Whatever! Just take something old, used up, "trash," and make it into something new and wonderful! You're saving resources, keeping trash out of landfills, getting something new or making a gift, and being creative. Upcycling is awesome, imo. ;)
If your project is a big one, you don't have to finish it in a week. Just make a post with your progress (or finished project) for us all to admire, and share the link in the comments below.
