So here are some inspirational uses of 'stuff' compiled for your inspiration!
This frame is such a cool idea! I wish I hadn't given away all my little childhood toys!
Embellishing shoes is also a fun idea, especially if you have those last few sequins and snippets of ribbon that you can't bring yourself to throw out!
Something from this blog: embellished boots! (Find the tutorial here.)
It's always worth thinking about framing some nicer 'bits' too.
Granted, the sea shore items in the picture are more of a purposefully made collection than an accidental one, but the end result is cool.
This kind is more up my street :)
Another idea for all those old toys and bits of toys.
Finally, I think this is a really cute idea for using up random beads and broken bits of jewellery.
I tried to find a proper source for this via google 'search by image', but all the matches are Pinterest!
Do you have lots of 'bits' lurking in a drawer somewhere?
