You can’t visit Pinterest without being met with an influx of upcycle projects. This household recycling trend has dominated the weekend agenda of creative people around the globe. But the upcycle realm has taken over another social network — Twitter.

Crafty folk have swarmed the Twittersphere, eager to share their repurposing projects and activate a community that loves to exchange ideas. The best of these Tweeple are informative, creative and share the best of the best in DIY projects. They also do one, two or all of the following things well:

  • They specialize in something. Whether it’s clothing, accessories, jewelry or furniture, these experts have a specialty that they’re passionate about.
  • They’re supportive of one another. Upcyclers are all about supporting their community, and they do a pretty good job of sharing each other’s work and cheering each other on.
  • They show off their goods, and not just to sell them. An upcycling expert wouldn’t be an expert without showing off their finished products, and the best ones aren’t shoving the Etsy links down our throats either.
