41  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Empty Glitter Pens? on: March 19, 2011 05:20:06 PM
I was cleaning out my crafts tonight (long overdue!) and I came across my old glitter pens.  Some of them are dried out and the tubes are kinda cool but I don't know what to do with them...any ideas?

That is so awesome!  I just found all of my altoid tins and have been trying to think of ideas of what to do with them...and you definitely inspired me to make something like that!

Funny! I just made a post about this because I have a ton too!  Someone suggested molding them into little stars and making a mobile...I'm trying it out since I've been able to bend them into all kinds of cool shapes..I'm hoping I'll be able to paint them with something, too, to give them color!

What can I do with corrugated boxes?  I've been cutting them up and using them as organizers in my desk but I feel like there's so much more I can use them for...

I found this a few years ago and have been tempted to try it since I only use Pearls and the boxes are so awesome!


I would reinforce the box somehow...maybe people on here would have an idea to do that but I was thinking a thicker acrylic paint or cardboard inside it or something since they seem kind of flimsy.

I like the idea of using it as an organizer box...put smaller craft items or pens/pencils in...

Make a parachute for a teddy bear/ other soft toy

What can I make with short bits of kite line (<5yards). For those not in the know, it's braided string of various different weights, very slippery and with no stretch in it. It has a low melting point, but is quite strong for it's width. It's also orange.

Is it possible to use them to make things like this...http://veryirie.blogspot.com/2010/08/diy-string-lanterns-string-lighting.html  I'm not sure what the method is called...having a brain fart.  But I always loved the idea of these things!

What can I do with A TON of keys?  I have old car keys, heavy machinery keys, house keys, lockbox keys, you name the key, I've got it! Except skeleton keys which are the coolest...Sad but I want to be able to do something awesome with them!

I actually washed a few out and bent them into cute little shapes...I think a mobile is a definite with these cute little things...I might spray paint them, too!

Thanks for the idea! Smiley

I've been using an oil burner like its going outta style lately and I have been going through a bunch of tea lights.  Does anyone have any crafty ideas for the little tin things the tea lights come in?  I hate to just throw them out when I'm going through about 3 a day!

I love that idea!  There are a lot of really neat pieces of artwork in the paper crafts forum, too, that are similar to this one.

I think I'm going to have to try that with all of my old magazines!

Those look awesome! And think about the awesome paint colors that you could make those with (accidentally of course!) Not to mention the really neat colors of painters tape they have now!
50  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Jackpot of JUNK on: February 24, 2011 10:40:37 AM
I think I hit the jackpot of junk in my basement!  But there are a few things I'm clueless as to what to do with...

I found a bunch of old windowpanes (some with glass and some without).  They are really neat and already rather antique-y looking.  I have some criss-cross type ones (makes diamond shapes) and I'm clueless as to what to do with them.  I'm thinking of taking a few and nailing them to a wall and putting pictures inside?

I also found a ton of pieces of wood and wood shavings.  I'm not great as a woodworker and neither is my boyfriend, so I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas to do with this stuff?  They're mostly 2x4 and bigger.

I'm sure I'll stumble across more things that I'm going to need help re-purposing, but I'll start with these things.  Any ideas would be great! Smiley
