Recycled Magazine Bowl - Pinterest Success #7

 

 

It always seems such a shame to put the magazines we subscribe to at our house, in the recycle bin, without getting some good use out of all those pretty, colored pages. Megan likes to find DIY projects on Pinterest for when she has some free time and loved the idea of repurposing her magazines.

This pin was her inspiration, but she decided to make a bowl, instead of a basket. This pretty bowl, sits on her dresser and can be used for makeup, hair accessories or any kind of organization you can think of. It was a time consuming project, but the result is a unique piece of art she can be proud of. The steps are as follows:

  • Make the base of the bowl by cutting magazine pages in half lengthwise, then fold each piece 3 times into a strip. Make a coil with the first strip to form center of base. Edge of strip with fold should face up (what will be inside of bowl) for a neater look. Continue to glue strips with glue gun around center coil, beginning a new piece where the last ended. Alternate colors as you go. Make base as wide as you want (approximately 5-6 inches).
 
  • Make the circles for the sides of the bowl my cutting and folding the same strips as above. Wrap strip tightly around a pen, such as a permanent marker and glue ends. You will need about 150 of these.
  • Assemble bowl by gluing circles sideways around base, smooth side out. Glue in between circles for stability. For next layers, do not place circles directly on top of previous row, but stagger slightly. This bowl has 4 layers of circles, but size can be varied.
  • Modge Podge entire bowl for strength and stability.
I hope you enjoy this fun and earth friendly project.

  2. That is very cool. My cousin used to decorate coffee cans with rolled magazines pages to make a pencil holder -- and there charity groups here that make beads and ornaments from old magazines. Lots can be done if one has the time and the patience. :) Best wishes, Tammy

  3. This is gorgeous! A friend of mine has one that she bought somewhere and I've always loved it and thought what a clever idea it was. I am so impressed that Megan had the patience to fold and roll all those pages...something I know I could never complete.
