Vinyl has many great attributes making it an excellent material for DIY projects. It is flexible, durable, holds shape well and is inexpensive. You can purchase sheets of vinyl to craft with or you can recycle your own vinyl products.
When I think of this material, my first thought is of vinyl placemats. They come in an unlimited amount shapes, sizes and designs. Additionally they are inexpensive and extremely convenient. Because they are cheap, I often buy fun designs and colors but retire them way before their expiration date. Instead of throwing them away or shoving them in the back of your kitchen cabinets, make a fun DIY craft with them!
