ReUsing Ceramic Dishes

Posted by Lyndsy Czapla:

Did you know that ceramic dishes have some great ways they could be ReUsed and can be kept out of the landfill, even if they are broken?  Below are some fun ReUse ideas….

ReUse for broken dishes:

1. Place them at the bottom of flowerpots to create better water drainage.
2. Turn broken pieces into a mosaic that is sure to be unique and fabulous.
3. Glue pieces to picture frames or other flowerpots to spruce them up.
4.   If they are not sharp, write on them and turn them into plant markers or dinner place cards.

ReUse for non-broken dishes:
1. Use cups or bowls as flowerpots.
2. Organize toiletries such as cotton swabs, band-aids, and cotton balls in the bathroom
3. Keep jewelry sorted and kept together. 
4. Hang plates on a wall to add some flair to your decor. (Many websites show you how to do this!)
5.  If you have no other uses, donate them!  Someone else may find other ReUse ideas for them!

Do you have more uses for old dishes?  Please share them here in the comments.
