It’s trash night and you’re cleaning out the fridge — but when you reach for the juice carton, think twice. This simple cardboard container can actually do you a lot of good around the house.
You might not have the vision for it, but do-it-yourselfers, crafters and bloggers across the web have thought of some pretty genius ways to reuse this simple household item.
And don’t worry — this list is for adults. We know there are lots of crafts out there for the kids reusing this kind of stuff. Everything on this list is something you can use in everyday life or around the house. So, check it out!
1. Birdfeeder
In a short time and with a little imagination you can turn that old carton into a cute little bird feeder. Get the kids involved and have them decorate the outside, too!
2. Snack boxes
This is an awesome way to repurpose something you were just going to throw away anyways. And, you might be able to get a few uses out of it. This is great for the kid’s lunch boxes (and your own, too).
3. A recycled wallet
This might sound a little crazy, but this do-it-yourself project is actually pretty cool. And if it’s not totally your style, the kids will definitely think it’s fun!
4. Food organizers
Decorate your old cartons, label them and use them to store everything from sugar to rice, salt, flour and more.
5. Make it a mason jar top
If you’re like everyone else, you want to use mason jars for just about everything. But, it’s not always practical. Luckily, our blogger friend Jillee at One Good Thing By Jillee has figured out the ultimate mason jar hack. Check it out.
6. Giant ice cube maker
Clean out your old juice carton well then fill it up with water. Toss it in the freezer then use it in your cooler, to keep things cold during long road trips or even in a bucket with drinks for a party.
7. Door stopper
Fill the top with pebbles or sand then use it as a door stopper or weight around the house. Paint it the same color as your door, or something fun with a pattern so that it fits in with your decor.
