Lucky us – our guest columnist David Morgan is back with a fantastic post on upcycling! Whether you’re an Etsy shop owner or a total craft novice, this post is for you. Enjoy!:
The great thing about shopping at Goodwill is that the low costs of each item offers you a chance to experiment with them. Adding a bit of creativity to a thrifted piece is a low-risk investment that can have high-impact results. I love doing this, and recently created two tutorials on my blog that showed super-easy ways to upcycle thrifted pieces.
One idea is to turn an old leather belt into a unique bracelet. Simply snip the buckle off and wrap it around your wrist. It’s that easy!
Another idea is to add a cool design on a thrifted shirt using fabric paint and a pencil eraser. You can do any design you want, and the results are really cool. This also makes a really fun family craft project with kids.
For added inspiration, poke holes in a t-shirt for a breezy, chic summer look. Check out one of my past Goodwill posts for more information.
