dot cuts back {upcycled projects}

It's back to our budget series today with Laura from Along for the Ride.  She has some great ideas about upcycling to share.  I just love her ideas and hope you'll tell her how much you love it!


I am continually trying to find ways to spruce up my wardrobe. 
A new necklace here.
A belt there.
What about a bracelet?
But, like every other family, money is getting tighter, yet my interest in expanding my closet seems to just grow.
So what's a girl to do?
Upcycle of course!
Upcycle: "The practice of taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater use and value."
Gosh, what's better than finding ways to add cute jewelry and accessories to your closet than with items you already have!?
So go dig out your old clothes from the Goodwill pile and rescue those scraps from the garbage. Here are a few fabulous projects you can do with the things you already have on hand!
