6 Creative DIY Ideas For Those Unwanted VHS Tapes

In case you saw our “8 Reasons VCRs Need To Make A Comeback” blog post and still weren’t convinced to keep those tapes around, here are 6 creative ideas for things you can do with your old VHS tapes.

I’m not sure if I’m cheap or green, but I still have more VHS tapes than I should admit to.  My main issue is with having to repurchase (or pay to convert) all of the movies I’ve already purchased.  My second issue is hating to see the amount of waste I’m creating simply because new technology exists.

But I’m having a second baby and that means Mission: Declutter is in full effect.

Here are six ideas of how you can reuse your VHS tapes.
