Don't Just Recycle {UpCycle With Smiles}


I’m officially trying my hardest to go as GREEN as I can around here!!
Recently, I upcycled some Vodka and Izze bottles to create some awesome
Halloween decorations for my kitchen.. *Vintage Candy Corn Bottles*

I also created a *Book Page Pumpkin* usingan old tattered book that was in bad 
shape thanks to my lil daughter.. How darling..?!

I’m on the hunt to see how many of you have been recycling via UPCYCLING!!!! 
I figured, this month will be a great month to show your creativity and green miles by 
creating awesome OCTOBER projects (Halloween Décor, Party Favors, DIY around the 
house crafts and more) using RECYCLABLE materials available to you. 

This linky will remain open tonight till October 30th for you to link up your 
UPCYCLED projects for viewing and voting!YES – This wouldn’t go without 
notice!! Link up your projects, collect votes and win some sweet awesome prizes!!
