12 Cute & Creative Ways to RePurpose License Plates

Walk into any antique shop across the country and you'll find a variety of license plates available for purchase.  I've never really been interested in them much, until now.  Check out some really great ways to use license plates to decorate your home.

How about this adorable Christmas Tree?  It's getting to be that time of year again, why not create a license plate tree this year.

I don't know about you but I've got mail all over the place, can't seem to keep it corralled.  What a great way to keep things organized, and it's cute too!

This has inspired me to make something for the bathrooms at the new shop to give me a little storage (ya know, for the essentials).

Just love this.

What a great idea.  My mind immediately goes to book covers.  Might have to try that (I have my grandfathers motorcycle license plates in my cupboard, thinking a journal is in order).

What a beautiful flower.  You could design any shape of flower or animal you'd like, think of the possibilities.

Very cute.  Names, quotes, bible verses, again, the possibilities are endless.  What would you frame to put on your wall?

This is fabulous!  You could do an accent wall, a headboard or even cover a door.

Cute little birdhouse.

Lots of possibilities for lighting, these little pendants are adorable.

I need to make some of these, what a great idea.  Growing up, every vacation we'd hit the souvenir shop but never did I find my name on anything, an initial, now that might work!

Another great idea.

I am hoping to make business cards holders for the new shop, maybe some advertisement holders for the foyer as well.  So many possibilities, so little time!

Have you made anything creative using license plates, we'd love to see what you've done.
