I have a bag full of tubing from when my late DH was on oxygen.  His supplier said the couldn't take it back, even though it is still sealed.  I have several 4' lengths, a couple 25' and I think I have one 50'  Some of it is green, most is clear. Anyone?

Cut them into 7-8 inch lengths, get some sort of stopper, fill them with glitter and close em up. Viola! Bracelets! (My mom was on dialysis but recenty got a kidney transplant, so we have plenty of tubing)

That would make a cute kid-craft,but my grandchildren are too young.  Maybe I'll look up some local girlscout leaders.

My mom used to use syringes with the needles still intact to scent her handmade crafts like sachets, pillows, etc...  She'd just plunge it into the fiberfill and give it a good squirt.  Because the needle went into the center of the fiberfill there were never any oil stains on her work.

In the movie "Party Monster," a character wears a dog collar-type thing with cut-off syringes sticking out from it.  I would absolutly love to own one of those.  I'm not sure how one would make one but if you did, it would be the best accessory ever.

Suggestion for 21+ only! I had an ex boyfriend ( a jerk, but creative) who would use sterile  ones to inject vodka into oranges- you could get a lot in there, and then when we'd eat them later, the flavor was really delish. It was a neat alternative to jello shots at parties and stuff, little vodka clementines and tangerines and stuff. I bet you could use other fruit too.

The kind with no needles are great for refilling those little tubes of handcream that people carry in their purses.   You can also wash out the handcream tubes and then use syringes to fill them with acrylic paint for on-the-go neat and easy stenciling and stuff.

You'd have to be able to sterilize them and remove the needles, but I use the syringes I get for giving medicine to babies to decorate cookies with royal icing.  It's much neater and more precise than using bags.

isn't there any type of humane organization that collects unused medical supplies? Specially if the syringes were used for saline solution, maybe they could be put into the autoclave and sterilized for used in developing or third world countries. I also know that animal shelters sometimes require the syringes to feed puppies or kittens, or you could give them to the shelters or vets to hand out to customers when they need to give medication to their pets, a syringe squirt to the back of the throat is a lot easier than trying to wrestle your cat into getting a dropper or a spoon in its mouth.

The tubing could be used for an aquarium, or as vinil piping, or as handles on a purse, maybe even threading pretty ribbon inside.

what about freecycle? maybe someone is desperately needing empty syringes and tubing and don't want to buy them... and they want to use them for crafting or cooking, not for injecting Tongue

you could make a garland out of them

long ago i made "pipes" out of polymer clay, and had a bunch left over, so i strung them on thin ribbon with beads and flowers between them.

i think anything that can be strung up should be.

Hilarious. Mostly I just want a t-shirt that says that: "Anything that can be strung up should be"
