Creative Uses For Velcro Cable Ties
Velcro is one of the most useful products ever invented, serving not only to fasten clothing, but to hang visual aids in classroom and to help “Velcro Wall Jump” enthusiasts stick to, well, walls. More recently, Velcro cable ties—strips of Velcro with hooks on one side of one end and loops on the opposite side of the reverse—have helped many technology lovers keep their devices’ gazillion cords from turning into spaghetti. But this isn’t the only use for Velco cable ties; as the list below shows, there are, in fact, several:
Keeping Floral Arrangements Tidy:
Fresh flowers can be a beautiful addition to any décor, but they tend to droop and leave a mess after a few days. One solution to this problem is to wrap Velcro cable ties around the flowers’ stems while their fresh so that, as they wilt, they do not tip over the edge of their vase, dropping a mess of dead petals. Best of all, Velcro cable ties come in a variety of colors, and froggy decorators are sure to find shades that match their vases.
Weaving a Basket:
Perhaps you don’t think “basket” when you think Velcro cable ties, but in fact, these colorful strips make for great weaving material. The experienced basket weaver can even plan his weaving pattern to keep all the strips’ soft loops on his basket’s inside and all the hooks on the outside. All he has to do then is put a few one-sided loop Velcro strips on his walls and voila: He’ll have a hanging planter or storage space for knickknacks.
Organize Christmas Lights:
Almost everyone loves the holidays, but they are not without their hazards. Every year, so it seems, someone loses her home due to a fire caused when an unruly nest of Christmas lights set a parched tree ablaze. Using Velcro cable ties to bundle your lights as you put them up can help you avoid this tragedy though—of course, you should still remember to water your tree regularly.
These are only a few ideas of ways you can use Velcro cable ties to tidy up and keep safe. For even more great ideas, call Feiner Supply at 1-800-645-3256.
