Upcycling for the Holidays

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Instead of going shopping for Christmas gifts, you might be able to find something right in your own home.  The idea of up-cycling can turn something you may no longer want, to a little holiday treasure. Alysia Southern from Barrage Designs in New Haven shows a few examples of things she’s done to add a little glam to objects you can find right at home.
