I've saved every OJ frozen juice can lid for the past 3 years. Any suggestions on how to use them?

    Is there a reason you saved them? The only thing I can suggest is to go on pinterest for ideas. I have never heard this before.

    Great way to have craft for kids. Take smaller pictures of family, cut in shape of oj lids. Modpodge pictures to lids. Then decorate edges with, rickrack,ribbons, beads and anything you want. You can use these as Christmas ornaments, make into wreaths, add magnets. The possibilities are endless. I am jealous.

    My children made a craft in school using old Xmas cards glued to can lids. A ribbon was hot glued to the back. I still hang them every year.

    I've used them like ornaments but added magnets for nice big fridge magnets. You could also paint them in ombre colors ., lay out in a pattern, connect from the back side with cardboard or balsa wood and use as a wall hanging or to frame a plain mirror. Paint in bright colors -maybe glitter?- and glue to a flat Styrofoam wreath form for a Christmas wreath. Finally attach some cork or felt to the flat side, decorate/paint the side with a rim and you have coasters(yes I saved them too! I think many crafters are also hoarders!)

      @Mommaduck I can't believe you are from Norwood. We lived in Sharon for 35 years but moved to NM 5 years ago. I miss the East Coast. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'll buy them from you. How many do you have?

      @Adelaide Gargiulo I have a bin full but I've spray painted them white. I'd like to repurpose them into something clever. Thanks for the offer.

    I saw a lampshade made with round mirror-like parts all connected. You would only need a frame for it. You can get one at a thrift store or a store like Home Depot. I will try to attach a picture. Hope I helped you.
