|Upcycle Your Old Junk to Create Unique Accessories||| Print ||
Though Kat Roberts has worked as a footwear and handbag instructor at FIT and 3rd Ward, what she really loves is “making beautiful new things from the destroyed and discarded.”
So this spring she created a blog, We Can Re-Do It, on which she shares some of her creative repurposing ideas. Her projects are all surprisingly easy and cheap, yet the results are stunning.
Follow her instructions to turn a lame logo bag into a lovely summery tote:
Or turn an old belt into a cute headband:
Transform an old grandpa sweater into a cute halter dress:
And, my personal favorite, here she shows how to use elements from broken jewelry to create a cool new multifacetetd necklace:
For those of you who weren’t quite lucky enough to attend the BUST Craftacular last weekend, where Kat’s company Whitehaus was a vendor, you can also purchase her wonderful creations from her Etsy store.
