Looking for creative recycling ideas for stuff you usually give away....or worse yet......throw away?
CREATIVE RECYCLING IDEAS FOR OLD STUFF
1. PILLOWCASES AND SHEETS
The chair seat above is covered with a vintage pillowcase. The pillowcase is just one of many things I've fell in love with over the years at the thrift store and just had to have.
2. RECYCLE THERMOSES AND LUNCH BOXES
I have to admit when I pulled up the project and looked at the pictures I was patting myself on the back. I did a good job! See those thermoses with the red lids/cups? They add the perfect touch.
3. CLOTH CALENDARS, CHENILLE BEDSPREADS, AND FABRIC SCRAPS
The fabric garland is made from pieces of a vintage cloth calendar, chenille bedspread, burlap, and shabby lace curtains. The pieces are tied to jute.
4. JARS, BOTTLES, GLASSWARE
They're great for displaying seashells, marbles, old keys, etc. Even odd shaped drinking glasses make great display items.
5. CURTAINS AND SHOWER CURTAINS | CREATIVE RECYCLING IDEAS
What can you say about used curtains. Think of all that material going to waste. I’ve covered many chair seats with old curtains. This vanity stool was a mess but paint and fabric gave it new life.
