Is duct tape a staple in your home? Do you often use it to repair cracks, loose and broken pieces, etc.? Well, it does the trick, but did you know that there are plenty of ways on how you can fix and repurpose broken things?
We’ve gathered 50 photos of people using their imagination in fixing and upcycling things that are broken. From car dents to broken chairs, these people have said “no” to duct tape and tried new ways on how they could fix things.
Check out their brilliant ideas, and who knows, you might get inspiration and be able to create your own fixing hack!
1. From ripped to ravishing
Our precious and expensive sofa would get worn out over time and suffer from discoloration and may be ripped apart.
Don’t consider buying another set just yet. Instead, why not put beautiful laces and incorporate them in your “problem” areas. Not only will it hide the things that you don’t want to see. It will also make your sofa look ravishing!
2. Bring up that value
3. Pretty “new” jeans
We all have our own favorite jeans, and it’s just a waste to see them fade, right? It’s so hard to find a pair of jeans that fits well, so don’t feel bad just yet because you can fix any faded parts of your fave jeans in a very creative way!
You can use patches to cover up those nasty faded spots. Not only will you be able to wear your jeans again, but it would also look even better! Like you bought them out of a store!
5. Baby shark doo doo
This car has a huge crack! The owner turned this bad event into an opportunity to design his car. You now have started singing “Baby Shark,” did you?
6. A whole world
7. Google inspired
Instead of paying for a new bumper, why not use zip ties and make it look like a Google inspired car? Clever, right?
8. We’re here for Shredder
9. Silly, but it works
Okay, some may laugh at this and call it silly, but can you really call it as such if it works? Maybe they should call it creative instead. What do you think?
10. Any belts?
11. Cat scratch
A big car scratch? Well, turn that into cat scratch with this innovative idea. Never seen such an artistic way to divert a car problem.
12. Pothole magic
13. Thor’s hammer
This car owner must have had a big car crash for his car door to look like that. However, he was able to find the perfect toy to fix his car. Looks like Thor had a fit and damaged his car.
14. Love these tile
15. Improvised sprinkler
If your water sprinkler breaks, then don’t be disappointed yet. You can use an old soda bottle to be your temporary watering tool.
Just put lots of holes on your soda bottle and attach the neck of the bottle to your hose, ta-da! You now have a temporary sprinkler.
16. Is that a dragon?
17. Hulk angry!
Oops! We don’t want to get our big green friend angry. He might punch a hole in your car! Kidding aside, this is a very clever way of fixing car dents!
18. Thanks, Leo
19. From rocking chair to swing
An old rocking chair that is broken may look hopeless but wait till you see this! It’s our favorite so far. From an old broken rocking chair to a very beautiful swing! What an incredible transformation!
