There’s nothing quite like getting involved in a little creative campaign, especially when it involves our favourite thing to do....upcycling.
Upcycled Creative has teamed up with ParcelForce to take part in their competition of creating “one person’s junk into another person’s treasure.”
So many of us have hidden gems lying around our homes, from the smaller items such as good old fashioned film cameras and clocks to larger items of furniture like Grandma (or Grandpa’s) favourite china cabinet . Whether they are items of sentimental value or just something that you can’t bring yourself to throw away, it’s sad when you see something looking tired and unloved.
Take it one step further and think of all those forgotten treasures in your garage or garden shed.
Tools, glass containers, parts from a past car renovation, an old wheelbarrow or vintage lawnmower (you know the ones that have no electric supply and you have to put some physical strength into making them work?) All of these items can be turned into something inspiring, useful and most importantly unique, no matter what size.
What springs to mind? What can you not get rid of? What would you like to see with a new lease of life?
Would you like for Upcycled Creative to find the hidden beauty in an item you feel has lost its way? If so then you need to get connected with ParcelForce via their social channels to take part in the competition. Find them on Twitter @parcelforce and facebook.com/ParcelforceWorldwide.
The competition has started so get involved quickly to be in with a chance. Click here for more information.
We’ll be sharing an update of the transformation process, so that you can see what is involved in our workmanship.
Remember that by upcycling you are contributing to sustainable living, so play your part and recreate your own pieces of treasure.
