Click through to see the ideas behind the projects pictured above. Mini blinds are an inexpensive window covering choice. They are also one that is rather personal. Colors, sizes, styles, shapes, the list goes on and on. Because of this they are something that is frequently discarded be it to the trash or donated to the thrift store. Their pre-used/owned status makes them a great material for repurposing into new projects. An article from The Oregonian gives us several great ideas to get our creative juices flowing. They give us tips on how to make coasters, fencing, gift tags and holiday trimmings. We think they could also be used to make the following:
Placemats (expanding on the coaster idea)
Table Runners (think long placemat)
Substitute Caning (weave a mat and place on a table and cover with glass)
Sq. Ft. Garden dividers
What do you think they could be repurposed into?
