Tiny things are always cute, but who looks at a dead battery and thinks, tiny cute thing? Well after you see the possibilities, you might! For this project three batteries were upcycled and used as the structure for three creative dollhouse accessories: a suitcase, serving tray and thermos. With some paperclips, recycled nylon fabric and some hot glue these projects are easy and fun.
The suitcase was made with a 9-volt battery wrapped in nylon; beads for the wheels and a paperclip for the handle. Zipper pulls were made from the metallic board recycled from a foil box.
The serving tray was made from a CR2430 battery and decorated with scrapbook paper. Paper clips were repurposed as tray handles.
The thermos was once an A23 battery, now wrapped in red and plaid papers. Again a paperclip was employed for the cup handle.
You’ll never look at old batteries the same!
