22 Crafty Ways To Reuse Magazines

I don’t subscribe to any magazines. Yet, I always have an enormous pile of the things lying around my home. They come from the mail, my neighbors and sometimes my father in law.

My guess is, your collection of unwanted magazines is just as large as mine!

Don’t just throw them all out! Here are 22 Crafty Ways To Reuse Magazines.

Recycled Magazine Bows (pictured above) – Make your own colorful bows for embellishing presents.

Recycled Magazine Business Card Holders - To make this project, first laminate a magazine image is and then sew on a vinyl pocket. Simple!

Turn Magazines Into A Chair - Turn magazines Into A chair using belts and a cushion. No tutorial is available for this project but you should be able to figure out the how-to’s on your own.

How to Turn Old Magazines Into A Bookshelf - This is one of the most ingenious projects I’ve ever come across.

Recycled Magazine Baskets - I’m not sure how utilitarian these baskets are, but at the very least, they would certainly make lovely decorative accessories.

Recycled Magazine Coasters - No loom is needed for this very basic weaving technique.

Turn Magazines Into Cards And More - Use a simple in and out weaving method to create cards, bookmarks and ever wall decor.

Paper Paper Ornaments - Not a quick and simple project, but the resulting ornament is lovely.

Coiled Paper Basket – Coil strips of recycled magazine pages around and around until a basket is formed.

Recycled Paper Bead Bracelet - This jewelry project doesn’t look at all “homey”. Very stylish!

Postcards From Recycled Magazines - Use light cardboard and images from recycled magazines to create unique postcards.

Stools Made Of Magazines – No instructions for the stools, but these pieces of furniture should be a cinch to figure out.

Triangular Paper Bowl – Check out this project from Instructables for a whole new concept in creating bowls from magazines. Fabulous!

Magazine Wastepaper Basket - No folding, coiling or wrapping for this project…. instead multiple pages of magazine and grommets add strength to the design.

Polymer Clay Jewelry Projects

Polymer Clay Jewelry Projects are the most common items made from oven drying clay.

Why?

For two main reasons. One, polymer clay can imitate virtually any stone or material, making it extremely versatile. And two, since jewelry is small, polymer clay jewelry projects require very small amounts of expensive clay.

Luckily for us, dozens of designers have gotten to work designing these great projects.
