Upcycling is not directly about using raw materials, but about increasing the value of old objects. In other words, to give them a new life. This means that old crockery, worn-out kitchen utensils or disused garden accessories do not end up in the trash, but are creatively repurposed and used again. A lot of original decorations can also be made with it, for every possible festival and occasion. How about making upcycling autumn decorations yourself, for example? Today we show you more than 50 clever decoration ideas from old objects that anyone can conjure up in no time at all. Have fun watching and good luck!
