In my new book "Upcycling," I share more than 100 recycling projects that take everyday things we usually toss and transform them into beautiful new functional things for the home. My favorite idea is to stack mismatched plates, cups and saucers into a tiered serving tray. Start with the largest plate as the base, center a cup in the middle, add a plate on top and continue. Glue them all together with E-6000 glue for a strong hold (wait 24 hours for the glue to set). Then throw a party!
