Recycling Projects around the barn

I thought I would start a thread and ask for your favorite recycling projects around the barn. I know a lot of people use the smartpak packaging for seed starters, My friend gives hers to the local preschool for paints and other projects.

Here is my latest. I wanted to put Cinny's tail up because it's hitting the ground now and I don't want to cut it yet but I didn't want to take away his fly protections. So, today I decided to gather up all the bale twine around the barn that I could find, and I made him a fly swatter to attach to his bound tail. This is how it came out.

What are some of the things you recycle and what do you do with them?

Oh I like it! Very colorful.

Not so much recycling I guess, but I couldn't find my lunge whip so I got my jumping crop (one that had the looped bat on the end) and some baling twine. I tied the baling twine onto the end, and surprisingly it didn't work to bad. The crop looked like this-
