Upcycled and Recycled DIY Fun

I love Upcycling and have been showing many wonderful upcycled items from Etsy over the past few weeks.  But today I would like to show a few things I found around the web that you can do for yourself.  Note: The link under it will take you to the site with full instructions except one which is noted.
Enjoy:

Upcycled Paper Bag Berry Basket on Ellinee http://www.ellinee.com/blog/diy-upcycled-fruit-basket/
Cute Upcycled Vintage Book Planter from Inhabitat at  http://inhabitat.com/diy-how-to-make-a-beautiful-book-planter/
How Trendy and Cool!  A purse made from Plastic Bottles found at Green Up Grader http://greenupgrader.com/22120/craft-recycled-5-crafts-from-old-plastic-bottles/
Ties are so expensive and what if they get a stain?  Fear not this great blog has a way for you to Upcycle them into great Fashion statements!  From Art Star by Aletha At http://alethaisraels.blogspot.com/2011/02/upcycled-tie-necklace-tutorial.html

Upcycled Crayons at Hands On As We Grow (their site is great if you have kids you must stop by there)   http://handsonaswegrow.com/2011/08/art-diy-upcycled-crayons/
This teeter totter may be easy for someone that has the tools and skills.  I had to include it even though it doesn't have instructions, number 1 because it is so darn cute and number 2 because it used something that is so hard to truly upcycle!  Love this sorry there is no directions I got it from  http://www.ripegreenideas.com/2010/12/un-jouet-en-un-vieux-pneu.html
This one is soooo cool it is not really upcycling but I had to include it because I can remember wanting tap shoes and boy, this would have been great as a kid!  Here is the link http://www.realsimple.com/new-uses-for-old-things/new-uses-kids/print-index.html If you have kids do check it out they have such great ideas.  Mine are grown but I am saving the link for future grandkids!
