    Cute!So doing this! Are the "feathers" made out of twine, or yarn, or what?

Lids have been transformed into a colorful Dr. Seuss-like tower.

Another clever craft! Here pet food bags are turned into usable aprons.

Using cardboard, candy packaging and rubber bands, Karina crafted a recreation of our African elephant, Watoto! What a cute upcycled craft!

One of our youngest Upcycled Wild Craft contestants recreated Seattle's Space Needle using recycled materials including cardboard, aluminum and wood (with a little help from masking tape to secure it all in just the right places)!

Use old magazines to create a one-of-a-kind box! Tear our single pages, fold them into thin ribbons and roll them into small swirled circles to stack on one another. The more you make, the bigger the box!

Enter your upcycled creations into the craft contest for a chance to win a behind-the-scenes zoo tour!

    Hee-hee, my real name is Rachel. I'm playing a prank on my friend Katie, so I'll change it back later. I LOVE the otter pup pictures you just pinned, though! So cute!
