Found a box of dogs license tags at the yard today..there must be at least 1000 or more. Have no clue what to do with them, but that's me can't pass on the weird stuff.

You'd love to get a shot at her out buildings....right after I'm done.Ha, only kidding of course. We junkers are all about sharing the wealth. I really should introduce the two of you. Man, you will have projects galore here when you get rolling. You really should start by making a dog collar for the contest though! How appropriate. Everyone has given you great ideas for the holidays so I'll have my thinking cap on for other re-purposes. Can you tell that you have my mind turning? I just wrote a novel here. Thanks for the post and the sleepless nights it will bring me until I figure it out!

Happy Holidays,

They always entered "hippie pads" and every doorway had the beads hanging down. Personally, in the Midwest we strung pop tabs). Since those ideas are taken, maybe using for trim on say the edge of a shelf.

Maybe put up with those little silver "L" hooks so there would be movement. I think they are cool but I would be a daunted by the sheer number of them. Lots and lots of projects with these babies. cool find, Georgia Posted: 2:43 pm on December 19th

Just a reminder to everyone (especially around the holidays) to spay/neter your animals to decrease the unwanted cats and dogs and please adopt animals from shelters- every animal deserves a loving home. Posted: 2:06 pm on December 19th

Just kidding. If you celebrate Christmas you can always string them together to make a cool garland. Add some red junk to them to make them really festive. Make keyrings out of them too.

That was my first thought when I saw your box of dog tags...hook them together with rings, end to end and hang them in a window or....a door. This would be loads of work, but just think how cool you would be!
