DIY is as popular as ever but upcycling is one of the top trends. You know I love that? What does that mean? Take something you have and use it as something else. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So one of the first ideas with upcycling is taking these plastic ornaments you might have at home and adding like a napkin ring or shower ring to stand up straight. You're not going to stand if you don't do this so you get a napkin ring and dmrup it to the bottom and have a little cocktail. A very festive. Cook a mocktail.
