Another 9 ways to give a new lease of life to household items

Last year, I wrote 2 "Tips" posts for giving a new lease of life to household items. It's time for a new edition! Here are another 9 ways to give a new lease of life to household items. :)

Inspired by a piece of wrapping tissue
1. Use pretty wrapping tissue and broken/tacky accessories on a mixed media canvas.

Upcycled perfume bottle
2. Turn an old perfume bottle into an accessory holder.

Come join me for afternoon tea

3. Decorate a clear marker box and create a one-of-a-kind invitation.

An altered bottle
4. Turn an old juice bottle into a statement pen/brush holder.

Your weekend project: cupcake trinket pin holder
5. Use an old sponge as a base to make a sweet cupcake trinket pin holder.

Beer can turned mug for paintbrushes
6. Turn a sturdy beer can into an altered mug to store paintbrushes.

Fabric tag
7. Use denim and lace fabric from used clothes to make a tag.

The one where the princess refused to smile
8. Use a decorative box cover diecut as a mat for your photo.

A shabby chic magnet
9. Turn a small wood packaging frame into a shabby chic magnet.

There you have it....another 9 ways to give a new lease of life to household items. Which one is your fave?

Clever clogs as always! Love these 'tutorial-ish' posts of yours. I'm with the Other Lizzy, & think the denim tag does it for me too - almost got beaten by your 'tray' fridge magnet, tho!!!

You always have the most clever ideas! LOVE how you can turn any old found object into a beautiful new treasure! I particularly love your pen cup holders, made from an old bottle and beer can. I could totally use a few like those around my house!
