Ornaments Made From Recycled Squeeze Pouch Lids

So...I just had to show you these.  My weirdest upcycled ornaments yet.  Even I admit, they are mildly demented.



I suspect most of you guys easily identified the Mystery Thing...right?  Or do we need a scroll down?

Okay, for those of you who have never seen one before...what do you guess they are, those odd rounded purple jobbies?

Scroll down to see!

If you have a baby or toddler - or know a baby or toddler - or have been even remotely baby-or-toddler-adjacent within the past five years, you know this item...

Here it is!



It's the colorful lid of those popular squeezie pouches.  The ones filled with delightful pap for children and adults alike.  I am partial to the blackberry chia stuff, so I have a big collection of purple lids.

The internet is full of excellent ideas for reusing them - many involving toddler games like counting and color sorting.  One of my personal faves: these cool shrinky dink vehicles from Laura at Lalymom:



Anyhoo, I know I went a little over the top with my crazy squeeze pouch lid ornaments...



And I'm fine with that.

Later, creators!

  4. You fooled me once again. My original guess was the top of an aerosol can. Wow, was I wrong, lol. I love what your imagination created with these colorful little caps.
