Old Things – New Life

28 Feb 2020

“I make cloth pads using old clothes. They are way more effective than most girls think. Plus, they can be washed.”


2

“I’m moving in a few months, so I’m packing a number of things in advance, to save myself work. Instead of buying packing material, I’ve instead been using receipts, old notebook paper, and ads from the mail as packing material.”


3

“I repurposed this lamp as a planter and (bonus!) my cat can’t reach it.”


4

Someone turned a broken umbrella into a reusable bag.


5

“I cut up an office chair box and glued the strips together, for my cats to use as a scratching board. When it gets too scratched up, I can just turn it over, or shave a bit off the top to expose a fresh surface.”


6

“I had a piece of leather I didn’t need and decided to use it. This is a coin keeper.”


7

“My grandpa works for a uniform company and finds a ton of paperclips in people’s pockets. Too many to ever use, but he hoards them anyway. So I decided to make barbie hangers for my little cousin.”


8

“I make masks and other things from old plastic toys.”


9

“I found myself buying makeup removing wipes every few weeks... But no more. With fabric remnants, an old hand towel, and a few hours of my time, I’m saving money and the planet!”


10

“My brush organizer was ruined when nail polish exploded in my bag, so I made a new one using some of my grandma’s old curtains! Happy with the end result.”


11

“Stack of leather cuff bracelets I made by cutting up and adding some pizazz to some old, beat-up, distressed leather belts.”


12

Made with medicine caps


13

“Don’t throw out the ends of your spring onions. Plant them and they start over.”


14

“Just the shoes I use for planting in my garden”


15

“I never throw away the waste from the coffee machine. I put it in a box, mix it with oils (olive and coconut), and I make a scrub.”


16

“This hat that I love, I made from an old sweater I loved.”


17
Bonus: “I just found out that numerous people sell crochet tampons”
