How to make stuff with recycled magazines

If you look for a way to get rid of old magazines don't throw them away, instead do something creative and useful with them.



I stumbled upon this vase from recycled magazines in House of Handmade which gave me the idea to look for more inspiration on how to use the piles of magazines that accumulate week after week.


If you want to begin with something easy, use recycled magazines to make some coasters. Watch this video to find how.






I think this mobile looks really nice, you can try and make one yourself, with recycled magazines, click here for the tutorial.






If you like these boxes learn how to make them here.


If you prefer bowls, on Indiepublic you 'll learn how to make them.




You can make little ornaments like these (craftpod)




or use them as bows on your gift packages (crafster)






Another idea I liked is to make a frame with rolled magazine pages, click here to see how.





If you are not so patient to make all the above here 's the perfect idea for you, it will only take a few minutes: make a plant stand !
