3 creative upcycling ideas to up your  home décor game

3 creative upcycling ideas to up your home décor game

ever hear the phrase “save the earth” and become instantly overwhelmed? we all want to do our part to help the planet, but planting 10,000 trees to make a difference isn’t exactly doable on the daily. even the smallest of acts can make a big impact, like riding your bike 🚴‍♀‍ instead of driving or hanging your clothes to dry instead of running the dryer. our personal fave? upcycling! 

upcycling = taking those items seemingly destined to become trash or junk in grandma’s basement + turning them into something valuable again. now that’s a thrifty trend we can be a part of 🙌.

at enviroscent, we use plastic-free packaging + refillable, reusable + recyclable materials throughout all our innovations. but the fun doesn’t stop there — we’ve got three upcycling ideas for your used enviroscent products that will up the décor in your home, office + bathroom. trust us, anyone can tackle these diy upcycling projects 🔧.


 scent stix stand upcycled into a toothbrush holder

1. a mod toothbrush holder

no one (we repeat, no one) will ever brag about how stylish their toothbrush holder is…until now 😉 we didn’t plan on it, but our scent stix stands make pretty darn good-looking toothbrush holders. our stand’s open-cut design even allows for maximum drying airflow. if you’re looking to upgrade to one of our many stand designs, upcycle your old one — it’s just that easy. 

 scent stix aluminum packaging tubes upcycled into planters

2. a sleek + chic tube planter

if you’re a nature-lover like us, then you love the look of fresh plants around the home. but tbh, most plants are high-maintenance + space hogs. 🤔 for a sleek + chic greenery upcycle, turn the aluminum tubes holding our scent stix refills into test tube planters! 🌱 these are perfect for growing some low-maintenance water herbs like mint, rosemary or lavender. our tip: mount a few to an old wood board and hang for a rustic planter statement piece!

 scent spritz room spray bottle upcycled into a flower vase

3. not-your-grandmother’s flower vase

you know tfw you want to stick a couple of flowers in a vase yet there’s no vase to be found? 🤷 those days are over. grab your empty scent spritz bottle, rinse it out + channel your inner florist 💐. bonus points: if you’re feeling a little crafty, decorate that sucker with a fresh coat of paint or hot glue a fun fabric for a custom floral masterpiece to reuse over + over again.


moral of the story: help us help you help the planet by upcycling your enviroscent products into fun diy household projects! 🌎 from our product to our packaging, you can feel good about using our stuff every step of the way.

p.s. to all our planet-lovers out there: all our refills are enviro-friendly. our scent stix + scent pods are made from paper that's been fsc (forest stewardship council) certified from sustainably managed forests 🌳, making them safer for the environment + easily recyclable. we call that a win-win-win.
