PURSES MADE OUT OF BOTTLE ENDS
There is so much more that you can do with bottles than just pen
organizers. By getting the bottom of two similar plastic soda bottles
and joining them together with a zipper, you can come up with a
creative purse that is more durable than that which is made of fabric.
PLAY TENT MADE OUT OF OLD CANVAS
If you have very old canvases that you are not using anymore,
you can make the best use of them by converting them into play tents.
Just sew these canvases together and use old durable sticks as
your foundation to come up with a tent that can stand and provide
an improvised shelter for your playful kids.
LAMPSHADES OUT OF USED BIG BOTTLES
While small bottles can be converted into pen organizers or cute
home decors, big bottles can be used to make lampshades for ceilings.
The bottom part of these bottles can be ripped open so the inside can
be mounted with a small light bulb, right at the opening of the bottle.
A heavy-duty string can then be affixed to the lid of the bottle so the
lampshade can readily be hung on the ceiling.
CLOCKS MADE OUT OF BICYCLE WHEELS
A wheel of a wrecked aluminium road bicycle can be converted into
a wall clock by mounting it directly to the wall through its hub and
attaching a high torque quartz movement to a set of cassette gears.
These clocks can run on an AA battery and can allow dilapidated
bicycle wheels to live another life.
UNIQUE CLOCK FROM A VINTAGE RECORD PLAYER
Using an old recycled turntable and another old-school album, you can
create a unique clock. This clock moves in quartz and can run on an AA battery.
This can be a perfect décor for your wall.
LAMPSHADE OUT OF X-RAYS
To make a lampshade out of x-rays, get an old drum lampshade
from your home and clip some x-ray transparencies all over it until
it gets covered. This will give your bare lampshade a new look and
will add more value to your x-ray results.
CHANDELIER MADE FROM JAM JARS
If you have already munched through all your jams at home and are about
to throw away all your jars thinking that you can no longer use them,
think again. Putting some bulb lights in these jars and converting them
into chandeliers make the perfect decoration for your ceiling,
especially when they are tinted.
STYLISH HANDBAG MADE OUT OF KEYBOARD PIECES
If you have a keyboard at home with one or two keys not working anymore,
do not think of just throwing it away. You can use these broken keyboards
as materials in making a fashionable bag. Just take off each key from the
main board and glue each one of them to your unadorned bag pattern.
What you get is a hip bag.
