How To Repurpose Kid’s Toys For Interior Decoration

Share |

Kid’s toys have a tendency to quickly get unattended and scattered all over the house, uninteresting and replaceable. And so they fill the chests and storage boxes taking up the precious space. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Almost everything can be repurposed and upcycled to be used as interior decoration.

Kid’s toys are often made of different plastics and resins so repurposing them shouldn’t be much of a trouble. The LEGO pieces can be used to create storage boxes or bowls and require only your imagination. Plastic animal fogures are best for repurposing because there are tons of things you could use them for. They can be used as toothbrush holders, planter pots, cabinet handles, wall hooks, and many many other things.

If you decided to take up such a project as repurposing kid’s toys, you have to be absolutely sure your kids don’t use them or don’t want to use those toys anymore. After all, it’s their precious toys. If you have lots of similar toys you could decorate a mirror or an artwork frame. If you have some unique pieces, it’s better to repurpose them for display.

Don’t be afraid to cut or paint the toys as you’ll need them to suit your decor, not clutter it. You can make interesting wall hooks by cutting them in halves or you can attach stable support to turn them into book ends.

Kid’s toys are usually small so they make great decor details, bringing unique style into your decor. You can repurpose some old and even broken toys and make them great vintage memory pieces together with your kids. Take a look at our gallery for some inspiration.
