14 Crafty Uses for Mesh Produce Bags

14 Crafty Uses for Mesh Produce Bags

1. Wad them up in a ball, secure with an elastic, and use them as scrubbies to clean nonstick pans and other dishes.

2. Hang the bags from a mirror and throw hair bows in them for easy access.

3. Make potpourri sachets from them. First line each bag with colored tissue paper, fill them with a small amount of potpourri, and tie them shut with a decorative ribbon.

4. Carry sand toys to the beach inside of them.

5. Hold skeins of yarn inside the mesh bags, then pull from the center right through the mesh. No more tangles!

6. Make them into bath loofahs.

7. Sew them into the shape of a stocking, finish with binding fabric, and fill with pet treats. Mesh bags make pet stockings like they sell in stores.

8. Run them through your embossing machine to add texture to your cards.

9. Fold them in half, sew an X through them, and use them as dish rags.

10. Add velcro so the bags can be opened and closed, and use them as lingerie laundry bags.

11. You can crochet with them! Make crochet table settings and doilies from the mesh.

12. Sew a doormat made of mesh product bags. Cut them into long strips, pin 3 or 4 together at one end and braid. Then sew the ends to another strip and continue until you have a long braid several feet long. Lay flat and and start to curl in an oblong shape. Stitch this as you go so you end up with a mat.

13. Use them as a paint brush for splatter painting. Dip the wadded up mesh into your paint, then fling it at your canvas for a splattered look!

14. Stretch the mesh over an old frame, staple it in place, and hang earrings from it for a stylish earring organizer.

I can't wait to get started making some of these crafts with all the produce bags I've squirreled away! What other ideas can you come up with for repurposing mesh produce bags for crafting?
