The Resene Upcycling Awards are coming back this month, the third year in a row! Watch this space and get prepared for the announcement; there are great prizes up for grabs.

Upcycling is the term used for taking a preloved item and transforming it - whether it's for a new purpose altogether, or just to give it an ‘extreme makeover'. Consider using the school holidays to get Upcycling with the smaller members of your household - or use the next rainy day to drag out the paint and your creativity!

In the meantime, check out some of the creative cookies from last year.
