Recycling Unrecyclable #6 Styrofoam

I cut out the logos from the Styrofoam cups and cover them with see through plastic. I then glue them to a sheet (e.g.) a poem I made up and give as gifts. Or use as a scrapbook page.

Jewelry can be made out of #6 Styrofoam too. Shapes can be cut out for children to color and paste. Patterns can also be traced on #6 and cut out. The original pattern can be saved because you traced it on to the #6 sheet of Styrofoam.

Small tear in clothes: Cover with foil covered Styrofoam and jazz up your outfit. Sew this on with clear nylon thread. Beautiful!

Use empty egg containers to grow beginning seeds or have kids cover empty/clean coffee cups (#6) with construction paper. Have them color it and paste on to the coffee cup. They can grow a small plant and give as a gift.

Small shapes can be cut out of #6 Styrofoam to be used as knitting markers when hand or machine knitting. Book markers can also be made out of #6 sheet Styrofoam. Letters can be cut out of #6 white Styrofoam and colored, glued, different color glitter! Makes great artwork for a project.

Jewelry/earrings can be made out of #6 Styrofoam and you can add beads to jazz up the jewelry. You can embroider on top of the Styrofoam for embellishment. You can cut out shapes with the #6 non recyclable coffee lids too!

The non-recyclable Styrofoam #6 actually becomes recyclable.
