I have tons of horrific broken mini blinds. We will be moving soon, and I don't want to put them up in the new place, and I can't leave them here. I have no idea what possessed me to get them in the first place.

 I have thought of cutting them up and using them to label plants next season, but that is a lot of labels. any ideas?

If the slats are long enough maybe you could weave them together and make something out of the woven pieces- placemat, book cover- something like that

Drill a hole in each one in the centre and then thread them onto a piece of dowel  and then turn each one a half inch further than the last one to make a 'twirly' mobile for the garden...like the ones in this link called wind dancerso or wind spirals..........

I've tried to weave mini blinds before... they actually together quite well, but if you use them under anything, like a chair...or a foot.. they just break, they aren't too durable!
