Upcycling is a great way to use old or discarded objects to create new and useful items. The following are several basic things you probably have at home or in the garage. With a little creativity, they can be turned into beautiful crafts.

Coffee Bean Holder

Find a small bowl, glass vase or jar and fill it a little over half way full with coffee beans. Use the container in your bathroom or bedroom to organize makeup brushes, eyeliner and mascara. This type of jar can also be used to hold pens, pencils and paintbrushes on your desk. If you don't have coffee beans, try using rice, pebbles or marbles instead.

Wine Cork Garden Markers

There are lots of fun alternative uses for wine corks. One simple and quick project is to make plant markers for your garden. You'll need wooden skewers, wine corks, marker or paint, glue and a drill with a small drill bit. Drill a small hole at the end of each cork that's a little less than one inch deep. Place the wooden skewers into the end of each cork, secure with a dab of glue. With a black marker or paint, write the name of the veggie or herb on each cork. Alternately, paint a rectangle of chalk paint on each cork so you can change the labels at any time.

Clothespin Flower Pots

If you have a package of clothespins around the house you can repurpose them into a small flower pot. Start with an empty and washed tuna or salmon can. Clip the clothespins closely together along the rim of the can. Carefully fill the container with potting mix and your favorite flower or plant.

Snazzy Ice Bucket

Find a gallon paint can and thoroughly clean out the inside. You may need to soak it all night to remove all of the paint residue. Once the can is clean and dry, coat the inside, rim and handle with gold or silver spray paint. It's okay if the paint gets on the outside. Measure the height and diameter of the can. Cut a piece of decorative paper using the dimensions of the can. Use craft glue or spray adhesive to attach the paper to the outside. After everything dries, add ice and chill your favorite drinks! 

Starburst Mirror

Using a small mirror in any shape, you can create a beautiful starburst mirror with a dozen or so paint stirrers. Start by selecting paint colors for your project, coat the paint stirrers and set aside to dry. On the back of the mirror, draw evenly spaced lines where the sticks will be glued. Test your layout using scotch tape so you can see what the design will look like before permanently gluing the project together. Using superglue, hot glue or Gorilla glue, secure the painted stirrers to the back of the mirror. Hang and enjoy!

Spring time after a long winter is always a welcome change. But soon, long summer days will bring scorching heat to your home.

Preparing your home for the summer is something many of us donít do until itís too late--as weíre hoisting an air conditioner into a window on a 90-degree afternoon.

In this article, weíre going to help you avoid such struggles. Read on for advice on how to prep your home for the summer heat.

Air conditioners

Weíll start with one of the most important objects in your home when summertime arrives--your air conditioner or HVAC systems.

First, change your filters. After almost a year of collecting dust, your filters will need to be cleaned or replaced to best circulate the air in your home. A dirty, clogged cooling system is bad for your home in more ways than one. The unit will struggle to circulate air and will have to work harder. That could mean components breaking on a hot summer day leaving you stranded in the heat. Over the long run, it can cost you more on your utility bill as it has to run longer to achieve the same temperature change.

Refrigerator and freezer

Another thing youíll want to clean is the coils or vent on your refrigerator. If the temperature in your house drops in the summertime, then your refrigerator will have to compensate for that temperature change and work harder to stay cool.

As I learned last summer, thereís nothing worse than losing an entire trip to the grocery store when your refrigerator stops working in the middle of the night and it takes hours for a repair technician to arrive.

This is also a good time to decrease the temperature setting in your refrigerator or you might find that it isnít keeping your perishables at a low enough temperature.

Prepare for insects

Youíll be tempted to toss open the windows to let in a cool, summer evening breeze, but if you havenít checked your screens you might be inviting in more than refreshing air.

Make sure your screens have no holes, including your windows, doors, and other ventilation systems that lead to the outside.

Use smart lighting and cooking practices

Thereís no need to bring in more heat than is necessary in the summertime. Close the blinds and curtains on the east side of your home in the morning and the ones on the west side in the afternoon to decrease the greenhouse effect of warming your house with sunlight.

Similarly, opt for cooking outdoors or using your microwave when possible to avoid heating up the kitchen.

Clean the kitchen

Kitchen odors become worse in the summer heat. To avoid unpleasant odors, the spring is a good time to do a deep clean of your kitchen. Emptying and cleaning your cabinets, throwing away expired food, and degreasing the surfaces in your kitchen will help avoid kitchen odors.

Once youíve achieved the items listed above, youíll be on your way to staying cool and refreshed during even the hottest summer days.
