35 Crafty Ways To Recycle Cans

August 25, 2013 / No Comments

35-Crafty-Ways-To-Recycle-CansUsed cans are one of the most com­­mon throw­aways.  Al­though they are norm­ally con­sid­er­ed trash, cans  have doz­ens of oth­er fun uses.  I’ve used them as a mold for pap­er mak­ing, but they can be used to make stor­age, toys for the kids, and even great look­ing home ac­ces­sor­ies.

Just keep in mind that open­ed cans al­ways need to be check­ed for sharp edges. These can be sand­ed down, if need be.

With that said, here are a coup­­le of my fav­­or­­ite i­deas. But please don’t be lim­it­ed by my sug­ges­tions. You can find plen­ty of other re­use proj­ects in a quick search of Goog­le.

13 Crafty Ways To Recycle Your TV

Crafty Ways To Recycle A Television

Ready for a new TV? Ins­tead of throw­ing out your old set, how about recycl­ing it into some­thing great?

What follows are 13 Craf­ty Ways To Re­cycle Your TV. I’ve in­cluded pro­jects that use all parts of the tv. This inc­ludes con­soles, stands and the tv it­self.

Please keep in mind, that even un­plugged, a tele­vision set can be dan­ger­­ous. If you’re not an ex­pert in elec­tronics, work with a part­ner who has full know­ledge of safe­ty precau­tions.

Also, tele­visions can be toxic to the environ­ment. So be sure to dis­pose of the inner workings respons­ibly.

1. Turn your television into a Bar. I’ve seen other re­cycled tv bars, but this is my favor­ite, by far.

2. Make your own Aquar­ium. Basic­ally, remove the in­ner work­ings of the set, and re­place with a pur­chased aquar­ium.

3. If you have a special photo­graph, show it off with a TV Turned  Photo Frame.

4. Have small kids? Then you’ll love this Con­sole TV to Pup­pet Theater Make­over.

5. Build this ador­able Play Kit­chen from an old tele­vision stand.

6. Add a wire door to a TV frame and create a Cage For Small Pets. DIY from Instruct­ables.

7. Use the console from a large tele­vision set to make a Bed For Small And Medium Dogs.

8. Learn about an art­ist that creates Unique Jewelry from re­cycled tele­vision parts. Sadly, no instruc­tions are included.

9. An Emp­tied TV set and a comfy pil­low make a private Bed For Your Favor­ite Cat.

10. Re­cycle an old tele­vision cabinet into great look­ing Living Room Furni­ture.

11. This pro­ject is way too tech­nical for me to do, but apparently you can turn your tele­vision into a Light Synthesizer. Who knew!

12. Need another techie project? Redo your TV into a Solar Powered Cook­er.

13. Re­nov­ate your TV into a fabul­ous Display Piece. No instruc­tions, but must be seen!!

Enough said!
