ReadyMade magazine has long inspired its readers to channel their inner MacGyver, and the current issue features the very best of their cleverly upcycled creations.

The April/May issue showcases the top twenty-five projects as judged by craft connoisseurs such as designer Jonathan Adler, Instructables CEO Eric Wilhelm, and Etsy admin Julie Schneider. I found the list of projects to be a little hard to navigate online, but directions for all one hundred projects are available for $10 in a printed-on-demand project manual.

A few of my favorite projects featured include the literary lamp, recycled light bulb chandelier, cement planter (also seen on Re-nest), and wine glass bell jar. Click each project's link for full instructions.

The issue also includes interviews with the project masterminds, including Kelly Malone, maker of the recycled lightbulb chandelier and creative force behind San Francisco's DIY school, Workshop, and Morgan Satterfield, witty chronicler of household projects at The Brick House.

For the full scoop, check out ReadyMade magazine or the ReadyMade 100 Project Manual.
