Do you have kids under the age of 14?
If you answered yes, I’m guessing that like me, broken cups, mugs, bowls and plates are a part of life.
I actually save our flour bags specifically for broken glass (we do have hard tiled floors). Plastic isn’t an option – and you know, it’s good to learn that not everything bounces!
Not all goes in the flour bags though. we usually have quite pretty plates (ie. random selection of floral op shop finds) and I can’t bear to throw them out nor have the patience (or desire) for mosaic crafting.
So in the garden they go…
Sometimes, cups and mugs don’t smash but merely crack- usually unbeknown to me until my coffee starts pooling up under and around my cup! If the cup is another can’t-bear-to-throw-out number they make lovely containers for succulents or small cacti. Goes for bowls too.
Do make sure you put small stones in first for drainage.
What about broken plant pots? Terraced garden! Almost tempting to break a pot on purpose for this one~
I’m sure there are plenty of other fantastic ideas out there for broken crockery, which ones are yours?
