I had to look up the term "upcycle" because I wasn't sure how it was different from recycling, but now I know it is taking something that would be trash and turning it into something more valuable. So for Valentine's Day I took some of my favorite cold coffee jars and made them into teacher's gifts. I just decorated them with scrapbook papers and ribbons and put chocolate inside...the key to any woman's heart. Super cheap and easy. Last year I used the same jars and made little "flower" bouquets out of paper. Both inexpensive ideas that I thought I would pass along. I really like "frap" jars because they are a cute shape, but have a wide enough mouth to add things easily.
