I have about 22 extra of the slats from a set of blinds and I don't want to throw them away.  Other than a picture frame, I have no ideas on what to use them for...

I know there must be something cool I can make! help???

The Readymade book shows how to make placemats-I think they used pencils or chopsticks.A long row.string at top and bottom.You have a long piece of string,folded in half.Slat-twist string,next slat,Or slat,twist,bead,slat.Can't describe it well,but it looked neat. It could make a scroll/mat thing,you could hang,& paint/stencil a simple image on.
Encircle a tall vase? Encircle a jar or can to make a vase? Swap it for something else?
