If you have just finished a tube of sour cream and onion, cheddar cheese, ranch dressing or barbeque you might want to hold off throwing the empty tube away. I say that because there are some rather unusual things you can make with them…
10 – Hot Dog Griller – www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/16/solar-cooked-hot-dog-pringles_n_5491932.html
If you live on your own and only want to eat one hot dog at a time why not turn that empty tube into this amazing solar powered cooker!
9 – Kaleidoscope – craftemagee.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/make-your-own-kaleidoscope.html
If you have ever wanted to make your own Kaleidoscope, a Pringles tube makes the perfect starter point. Just visit the link for a full making guide.
8 – Tudor Fairy House – brandlin.blogspot.co.uk/p/building-pictures-gallery.html
While not everyone is going to have the tools to print out and cut the plastic into shape, this is still one of those things that you have to see it, to believe it. But it isn’t recycling, this is Pringles can craft art!
7 – Candle Holder – www.etsy.com/listing/204268155/pringles-candle
I would have made candles with the smaller snack pack size cans, but this will do, in fact, they would look rather nice if used in the right place.
6 – Pasta Store – uk.pinterest.com/theworldstop10
Nothing too complicated here, just cover the tube in something, then you can stick a load of pasta inside of it and keep it nice and dry.
5 – Supply Craft Storage – totallygreencrafts.com/2012/12/pringles-can-craft-supply-storage
Not a whole lot to this idea, but the wood effect paper makes it stand out from all the rest. In fact, it looks quite professional!
4 – Advent Calendar – imgur.com/gallery/4QHvbvD
You might want to pop open another tube of Pringles for this one because you will need 24 of them! As far as ideas go this is definitely one of the good ones.
3 – Rocket – www.pinterest.com/pin/27232772716931502
I would tell you that making one of these is simple and isn’t rocket science. But, sadly it is and unless you know what you are doing, do not try and make this at home.
2 – iPod Dock – www.neatorama.com/2009/02/12/pringles-can-ipod-dock
With both speakers and a charging port, this is a very advanced build. But, if you fancy making one there is a making guide in the link.
1 – Rustic Rock Vase – fabyoubliss.com/2013/03/14/a-beautiful-handcrafted-rustic-rock-vase-made-from-something-very-unexpected
There are so many versions of people making flower vases out of Pringles tubes out there it was difficult to choose from them all. But I think this is the very best of them. Not only amazing recycling but also a great gift idea.
