12 Cool Projects with Recycled VHS Tape

Today I got a question from June on Facebook asking if I had seen any cool crafts using recycled VHS tapes. I just saw a pretty cool book shelf recently on Recyclart that was made completely from old VHS tapes. June’s question got me thinking of whether you really could do anything with VHS tapes. Guess what. You can! People…you never cease to amaze me! Let’s have a look at what brilliant minds are doing out there with old abandoned VHS tapes. What surprised me the most? How many artists I ran across that are using this material in their works of art.

Well, I’m shocked at what people have found to do with old VHS casettes. June, I hope you find some inspiration in here to do something with yours. Come back and share with us if you do!

Until next time…
