In a new book out this August, upcycling ace Danny Seo guides readers through the craft of taking trash and everyday objects and transforming them into "better, brighter, and cooler things." Armed with humor, wit, and an arsenal of bottles, corks, take-out chopsticks, and other cast-offs, Danny details 90 projects that range from decorating ideas to gifts to entertaining to kid-friendly crafts—and all can be completed in just three steps. We asked Danny a few questions about how the book came about and for some words of wisdom for our Methodology upcycling contest. "Just think if MacGyver were running a Michaels craft store, what would your Methodology result be?" Danny says. Read on to learn more about how Danny got his start and for a sneek peek of Upcycling: Create Beautiful Things with the Stuff You Already Have.
