Plastic Mesh Food Bags ~ Repurposing

Keep those plastic mesh (or net) bags that your lemons, limes, onions and other foods items come in.

I just made a different type of kitchen scrubbie, using my leftover net bag from lemons.

Here are More Ideas for Recycling Plastic Net Food Bags:

Fill a mesh bag with bird food, add scraps of string and yarn, and make an outdoor suet bird feeder.  Tie in a tree with scrap string.

2. Scrapbooking and Card Making
Cut and glue small pieces of netting for backgrounds of photos.

(another version of crocheting, click on link above)

4. Embellish Homemade Hair Accessories
Glue pieces underneath embellishments onto hair clips, combs, and barrettes.
5. Cold Storage
Use leftover net/mesh bags to store vegetables for the winter season (potatoes, onions etc).

OOOOOOkay! I love that scrubbie idea! I have been saving all my mesh bags with the intent to use them for shopping produce but I have more than I need... LOOK out pots and pans! Thanks! This is terrific!
