Aldi has teamed up with Changing Rooms legend Lauren Llewelyn-Bowen to launch a Specialbuys collection of Upcycling products. So if you were thinking of getting rid of tired or discarded items around your home, this new range will give you the chance to bring them back to life again.

Inspired by a survey which shows that a third of households are planning to repair rather than buy new this year, Aldi's new collection encourage buyers to renew, restore and repair items for less and with stylish results that won't break the bank. And of course, the items are as fabulously flamboyant and opulent as Laurence himself.

Interior designer Laurence said in a statement: “It’s time for a craftnaissance to upcycle your home. I'm on a mission to bring maximalism back into your home, embracing the styles that make you, you. Feather your nest and become an upcycling extraordinaire rather than a DIY disaster with my collection of useful but beautiful creative essentials.

"Opulent fabric in my exclusive designs drawn by my own fair hand, delectable, printed sewing tins and a cornucopia of stamps and stencils to put your own stamp (pun intended!) on your maison… using the most modest budget perfect for today."

Laurence's range includes specially designed Fat Quarters (£9.99), a handy Sewing Essentials Tin (£6.99), Vinyl Rolls (£6.99) and a unique Stencil & Stamp Kit (£6.99).

Made from recycled cotton, Laurence's velvet style Fat Quarters come in a pack of eight and feature an array of vibrant designs, which are perfect for all types of crafts, including bunting, bags and quilts.

Laurence's self-adhesive Vinyl Rolls will breathe new life into tired items of furniture, while his Sewing Essentials Tin includes a fabric-covered retractable measuring tape, thread, snips, seam ripper, needles and safety pins, ideal for making quick repairs to clothes and home-décor. The Kit comes in two hand-painted designs by Laurence, including a typically decadent flamingo design and a fun paisley design.

The new collection is available to pre order online from 31st July and in stores from 7th August. It will be available through August and September, and it starts from just £2.49. As Aldi's Specialbuys ranges usually sell out fast, and once they're gone, they're gone.

Aldi's Upcycling range is available throughout August and September, while stocks last.
