Are your window blinds getting old and need replacing?
It is always such a shame to see blinds for windows being thrown away, when they can serve so many other purposes.
This is why in this blog update, we will be sharing with you different ways to reuse window blinds.
Repurpose Broken Window Blinds – Plant Markers
If you are wondering how to recycle plastic window blinds, why not cut them down and write on them in a permanent marker, so the next time you are planting flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables, you know what each plant is.
Window Blind Crafts Basket
For people searching for other ways to recycle plastic window blinds, if you enjoy arts and crafts, why not try weaving a basket out of the plastic window blind slats, that could be used to store things in your home, or to grow plants in?
Repurposing Window Blinds – Wall Display
For those of you who have children, if you have some decorative window blinds, or just some plain and simple shutter blinds that still work but that you would like to replace, try making a wall display for your children’s bedroom with them.
By attaching the interior blinds to the wall, lowering them and adjusting the slats so that they are open, your children can balance their cars or figurines on the internal blinds.
Recycle Window Blinds and Make a Starburst Mirror
Searching for a way to give those old plain and boring mirrors a new look?
With aluminium window blind slats or even white or black plastic window blind slats, use a hot glue gun and stick them to the back edge of the mirror to give it a starburst effect.
Window Blind Craft Ideas Glue Spreader
For when you have big projects that need gluing and you’re unsure of how to spread that blob of glue around, a plastic slat from shutter blinds can be used as the ideal glue spreader.
Recycled Window Blinds Chain Link Fence Panels
If you have a chain link fence at your home, why not add a bit more colour and privacy to your home by weaving your window treatment blind slats through the fence and make them into fence panels?
Hard to Reach Items
There is nothing more annoying than something you want being out of reach for you to get. Whether that item has fallen down the side of the oven, or is right out of reach under your sofa, why not use your plastic, metal or wooden blinds as a stick to knock that item towards you.
Finding the End to the Sticky Tape
It can be so annoying trying to find the end of the sticky tape, yet it feels like such a waste of precious tape when you fold down the end so that it is easier to find the following time.
If this is a constant struggle that you are experiencing, why not cut a small piece of your plastic or metal blinds slats off, so that you can stick the end of your tape to it.
This way, not only are you making another use for your plastic and metal window blinds, but you aren’t wasting any tape.
