LicenseToCraft - Upcycling to create unique gifts and keepsakes

Our first project started off as just a way to take our old license plates and turn them into some sort of keepsake...a mailbox. We had so much fun working on the project together we didn't want to stop! We decided to see what else would look unique made out of license plates and came up with one new thing after another.

Upcycling, reducing, reusing and recycling are very important to us and we love to be able to take old items and make them new.

We will gladly use any of your own personal plates for our designs, work on custom pieces and ideas and also obtain plates for you from your state(s) of choice to create unique pieces that you can display proudly in your home, garden or office...or that would make a great, unique gift!

*Our license plate mailboxes were featured in the May 2015 issue of Log Cabin Homes Magazine*

*Our license plate chickens and roosters were featured in the March/April 2015 issue of Chickens Magazine*

*Our Wisconsin license plate chicken was used as a prop in the 2015 movie "Killer Set" starring Michael Rapaport and Bob Saget*

Feel free to check out our blog where we post pictures of some of the custom orders we've made!

Thanks for stopping by!

Additional policies and FAQs

Please make sure your shipping address is correct and you are able to accept United States Postal Service packages. Any packages returned to us as undeliverable will be charged to reship as USPS won't redeliver for free.

For license plate items, the plate numbers and letters will vary. If you are looking for specific numbers and letters on the plate please contact us beforehand.

For can items, can styles sometimes change throughout the season, so the can lamp you order may have a different appearance than the can lamp pictured. The Bud Light lamp, for example, will still be a Bud Light lamp, it may just be a newer version of Bud Light's can as they change it up a bit throughout the year. We try first to obtain the can that is actually pictured if possible.
