This blog shows aesthetically pleasing projects starting from anything that you could find in a recycling bin: can, plywood, plastic bottle, The possibilities are endless.
I'll do my best to show my own projects or creations from others I really like.

Upcycled PET plastic
I'm not really into jewelry, but I must admit that what Gülnur Özdağlar can do is really creative and needs some obvious skills. Since 2008, she's making necklace, earrings but also brooches and buttons from plastic bottles. She also makes bowls and home decoration accessories. She's using the original color of the bottle to make these beautiful translucent creations.
Ring, necklace and brooch
Some of her work is available on Etsy and it's really affordable
My favorite bowl
How to make it?
If you want to give it a try, there's a tutorial on Instructables (posted by the artist herself) that will give you all the directions to make a bowl. Have fun!
