Upcycling? It's the new recycling! ♻️
If you've ever felt the urge to reuse something around the house instead of throwing it away, you're already familiar with the concept of upcycling. Upcycling is the practice of taking something that's no longer being used and giving it new life. It's a great way to give old items a second chance and reduce your environmental footprint. You can turn an old t-shirt into a tote bag or an old pair of jeans into a pillow. The possibilities are endless! You can even upcycle your old furniture into something new and exciting.
One of the core principles of Bed&Butter’s existence is to encourage small changes that lead to a big difference. In today's episode of small changes, we feature: UPCYCLING! The more we upcycle, the more we reuse, the less we waste 🌍 ❤️

Here's 5 creative ways to upcycle Bed&Butter Eucalyptus Sheets (or any other sheets you own).
1.Tie Dye: Get creative and give your Bed&Butter Eucalyptus sheets a fun tie dye makeover. You can buy tie dye kits at your local craft store or make your own by mixing food colouring with water. Before you know it, you'll have a colourful new set of sheets!
2. Paint: If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, you can try painting your bedsheets. All you need is some fabric paint and a steady hand. You can create a unique design or simply use a stencil for a more uniform look.
3. Embroidery: Add a touch of elegance to your bedsheets with some embroidery. You don't need to be a master seamstress to do this - all you need is a needle, thread, and a bit of patience. You can create intricate patterns or simply add a few simple designs for a subtle touch.
4. Patchwork: If you have a few different bedsheets that you want to combine, you can create a patchwork quilt. Just cut the sheets into strips and then sew them together. You can even add some fun appliques to your quilt for a unique look.
5. Projector screen: Repurpose your sheets and use them as a projector screen. Movie night sorted!
Don't be afraid to get crafty and give your sheets a makeover! ❤️ In the process, you end up giving a sheet about our planet (get it? hehe).
