so my mom just got new license plates and she said i could have the two old ones. i really want to make something out of them but im not sure what.

my mom said that she's seen some that had been turned into birdhouses and flower boxes but im not really sure what they would look like or how they are made.

if anyone has any ideas at all please post.

You can bend them and make them into little notebooks...add paper somehow..I have seen this done before.  Kind of like a binder.

yeah, birdhouses come out nice.

my mom made one once, and it's still hanging in a tree where my grandma used to live.

she bent the license plate in half and used it as the roof, and drilled a hole in the... peak and stuck a wire through to hang it. she made the rest out of wood, and nailed it all together. the bottom was falling out since it's over, like, 20 years old, but we fixed it. we didn't want the baby birds falling out! but yeahhh we have residents living in it all the time. they like it, i guess. sorry i don't have a picture of it.  Sad i've never seen a flower box, or anything, though.

maybe you could drill some holes into one of them and make a mobile out of it? i dunno. lol

sorry i'm not much help haha.
