Who could resist a great 15 minute craft that results in a unique piece of homeware.

Hey Let’s Make Stuff is a fantastic craft project blog and we love this great tutorial to make a stylish ice bucket from an old empty paint tin.

This easy upcycle would not only make a great ice bucket but the crafted paint tin could also be used for lots of other things and make use of all those old tins you may have lying around!

How about using it for a plant pot, utensil holder, or even storage for tiny toys (Lego, figures, building blocks)

A date for the diary if you want to give a new lease of life to old crockery. Get creative at these up cycling workshops at Heals. Book in for one of the two available September dates via Eventbrite

They say;

Give life to your vintage china in our upcycling class at Heals. First choose a pre-loved plate or teacup from The Indytute’s very special vintage china collection. Each piece has been rooted out by the Indytute china scout, who has scoured garage sales, antique stalls and junk shops to select the ideal pieces to upcycle. The idea of this workshop is to give you plate a new lease of life and turn it into a work of art you might spot in Harvey Nics. These plates make great presents and they also make a shelf very happy
