Sometimes it’s the simpler craft projects which are the most effective. This infographic shows how you can re-use household waste such as an empty Pringles can, and by applying a spot of découpage, end up with a neat storage receptacle. You get to enjoy the original contents of the Pringles tube, you reduce your waste and end up with a useful container for spaghetti which looks good on your kitchen shelf. A win win situation all round!

Re-using Pringles containers is highly topical at the moment as the Recycling Association has said that they are one of the most challenging items to recycle given the mix of materials used to produce them. You may be interested to take a look at this article which appeared on the BBC Website suggesting some different uses for a Pringles tube once the contents have been munched. Most of the ideas aren’t particularly crafty – hence our suggestion above – but I do rather like the re-invention as toys for pets. Those guinea pigs nibbling away at their treat tubes are very cute!
