Hey y’all, today I’m comin’ atcha with some crafting wisdom. Do you have a bunch of crap in your house that doesn’t really seem like trash, but you don’t really want it taking up space anymore? I know I do. So, I looked up a bunch of uses for those things, and decided to share what I found with you. Disclaimer: none of these pictures are my own- they’re all from Pinterest.
Puzzles with Missing Pieces
Yes, everyone has bought at least one thousand-piece puzzle in their lives, then lost one piece rendering the entire project useless. What do you do with the other 999 now?
- Adding personality to homemade cards and gifts– think “we’re a perfect fit,” or “thanks for being a piece of my life.”
- Wall art- paint those suckers and shape them into whatever the heck you want.
- Kids crafts
- Bulletin Boards– if you’re a teacher, you can use puzzle pieces as tree leaves on your bulletin boards, borders, and more.
I have a stack of magazines from the APA that I will never read, and will be long outdated by the time I have an office to display them in like I’ve read them. My mom has a stack of People, and my sister and I both have a stack of Seventeen that we don’t even pay for anymore but it just keeps coming to our house. What do we do with it all?
Baskets, bowls, or trash cans- for future magazine stacks
Ornaments and Decor
You got a t-shirt for that time you did that walk for that thing you can’t remember? You were in the super obscure college club that gave you a free t-shirt and now you’re embarrassed that it even existed, never mind that you were in it? You gained weight? Lost weight? Well, if you don’t have a use for those old shirts anymore, look no further.
