Got some lawn clutter? No Halloween costume plans?


That was me until I decided to kill two endangered birds with one stone with my butterfly wings-campaign sign upcycling project.

All you need is some glue, cardboard, a few ropes and at least one retired parent to do all the work for you!

Sadly, this year’s versions didn’t actually grant me the power of flight (grandpa labour just isn’t what it used to be).


Got a Halloween upcycling idea? Post a pic of your costume on instagram or twitter (hashtag #bricolagehats) including at least one reused object/material and I’ll give out a gorgeous upcycled Bricolage hat to one random entry. Contest closes October 30.
