Quirky Recycling Ideas- 4 Everyday Objects given a Second Purpose April 21 2014, 0 Comments

It's Earth Day! Here are some clever ideas to reuse and repurpose everyday objects that might tickle your creative tastebuds.

BUCKLE UP KEY HOLDER

 

'Clunk Click'- We love love love this apt way of safekeeping your car keys! Made from a real car seat buckle and wall mounted, it provides the perfect docking station.

 

SPANNER HOOKS

Cute idea! Bent spanners, turned into hooks. More suitable outdoors or in your garage, these industrial strength hooks could hold anything, from heavy winter coats to bowling ball bags… that is, if you can muster up the strength to bend them this way! 

 

DINOSAUR TOOTHBRUSH HOLDER

Create a "Dental Dino" toothbrushing buddy. He not only supervises the brushing but safeguards the toothbrush overnight ready for the morning shift! Great way to repurpose your child's old toy.

 

ACTION FIGURE BOOKENDS

 

Encourage your child to reach for a book, with this DIY bookend repurposed from a toy action figure. Great project to get the kids involved and see what ideas they have for transforming their own surplus toys.

Remember to be gentle and mindful to the only place in the universe we can call our home. Happy Earth Day!
