Creative people are thinking outside the box this Christmas. Instead of the usual Christmas gifts for those on their gift list, they are considering repurposing – recycling – items into unexpectedly great presents!
If your children have a trampoline in the backyard that they hardly ever go around anymore, you might consider upcycling it into this:
Upcycled Christmas Gifts: Repurposed Trampoline
This is just a photograph of a cleverly recycled trampoline and not a set of instructions on how to get it transformed. We’ve scoured the web and we can’t find the original post or instructions and have no idea who owns the photo. We’re so sorry! We did find a tutorial for something very similar here: Easy Trampoline Top Tepee
But, great inspiration, right? You’d need a very handy person to set up the supports but it is a do-able project. This is a cross between a tree-house, a hammock, a tire swing and a trampoline. What fun!
