I decided to do a wall hanger using old sparkplugs and wood following the Industrial Design Aesthetic. As it has to be an upcycle project, I will get the spark plugs from my own car and the wood from a scrap material place. In today’s world, it’s more important than ever to find ways to reduce waste and reuse materials. With the use of readily available materials, this project is both eco-friendly and cost-effective. Upcycling is a creative solution to this problem, as it transforms discarded items into new and useful objects. In this project, we aim to upcycle old spark plugs and wood to create a unique and functional wall hanger.
This upcycle project will follow the Industrial Design Aesthetic because the pieces I’ll be using are meant to be strictly functional and not meant to be beautiful when they were created. The result will (or at least I will try) be a beautiful wall cloth hanger that I will further enjoy because its practicality, the cost of making it and the fact that it will remind me about car engines (which I love).
This project is a simple and creative way to upcycle old spark plugs and wood into a functional and aesthetic wall hanger. The use of readily available materials makes it an eco-friendly and cost-effective solution. The possibilities for customization are endless, making it a fun and personal addition to any home or office space. Whether you prefer a minimalist look or a bold statement, the spark plug wall hanger can be tailored to your style. By upcycling, you not only create a unique object but also do your part to reduce waste and support sustainability.
Thank you Austin! Actually I was planning to install it on the wall in my room, this way I have a hanger and also I am able to look at it more often. I agree it will blend even better in a garage, maybe in the future I might install it there.
Great post Pere. I love your upcycling idea in combination with your chosen aesthetic. I agree with you on your point that we must reduce our waste and strive for sustainability, which your functional upcycled project embodies. I’m wondering where you plan on mounting this once it’s finished. I think it could look great in a garage as it conforms to that aesthetic (at least many personal and hobbyist garages).
