Let's get started!
If you're like most coffee lovers, you probably have a few favourite mugs that you enjoy using on a daily basis. However, accidents happen, and even the sturdiest of mugs can break. Before you toss those broken coffee mugs into the trash, consider upcycling them into something new and valuable. In this article, we'll share 10 creative ideas for repurposing your broken coffee mugs.
Let’s dig-in to explore what creative you can do with broken coffee mugs!
1. DIY Mosaic Art
Turn your broken coffee mugs into a beautiful piece of DIY mosaic art. Simply break the mugs into small pieces and use them to decorate a vase, picture frame, or any other item that could use a pop of colour. This is an excellent way to add a unique and personal touch to your home decor.
2. Mug Planters
Transform your broken coffee mugs into mini planters or small succulents. Fill the mug with soil, add a small plant, and you'll have a cute and eco-friendly addition to your home decor. This is an ideal way to add some greenery to your living space without taking up too much room.
3. Candle Holders
Transform your broken coffee mugs into candle holders. Place a tea light or small candle inside the mug, and you'll have a cozy and atmospheric addition to your home. You can even use multiple mugs to create a unique and visually striking centrepiece.
Make a pincushion from your broken coffee mug. Fill the mug with some foam or batting, cover it with fabric, and you'll have a handy place to store your sewing pins. This is a great way to keep your sewing supplies organized and easily accessible.
5. Bird Feeder
Use your broken coffee mugs to create a charming bird feeder. Attach the mug to a wooden board or stake, fill it with birdseed, and watch as the birds flock to your yard. This is an excellent way to enjoy nature and add a unique touch to your outdoor space.
6. Mug Cozy
Make a cozy holder for your coffee mug. Crochet or knit a cozy to keep your hands from getting too hot while holding a hot drink. This is an excellent way to add a personal touch to your morning coffee routine.
7. Jewellery Holder
Use your broken coffee mugs as charming jewellery holders. Glue the handle of the mug to a saucer or small plate and use it to store your rings, earrings, and other small items. This is an ideal way to keep your jewellery organised and easily accessible.
8. Pencil Holder
If you need a new pencil holder for your desk, repurpose a broken coffee mug instead of buying a new one. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it also adds a personal touch to your workspace.
So, summing up...
There are so many ways to reuse your broken coffee mugs, from creating beautiful art to adding unique touches to your home decor. With a little creativity, your broken mugs can have a new lease on life, and you can feel good about reducing waste and giving new purpose to an old item.
