Needles No Longer Sewing Worthy?

Upcycle-Recycle Logo

Needles no longer sewing worthy? Try these ideas:

• Hang pictures, quilts and objects. A sewing machine needle is sturdy, can bear weight and leaves a nearly unnoticeable hole in the wall. Use three, four or five needles to hang large quilts .

• Create texture and designs on decorative cards and paperwork.

• Make jewelry.

• Collect dull needles in tins or old prescription bottles, so you and the trash collector avoid nasty needle pricks.

• Check out your local recycling facility or scrap metal business.
