1 Valentine Tic Tac Toe

Valentine Tic Tac Toe How cute is this? Sure this is a Valentine craft but you don't have to wait until February 14 to make this fun** computer keyboard DIY**; any lovely gift for your love given any time of the year is sweet. You can also make this before a long road trip with your family.

Tutorial

2 Wallet

Wallet Yes, you can reuse a computer keyboard and make a wallet. From the keyboard you dismantled, you will see a thin sheet of circuitry. That's what you will need to make this creative and cool wallet. You will also need clear packing tape for keeping the whole thing intact.

Tutorial

3 Rings

Rings I'm sure you have seen keyboard rings before. If you want to make your own (for keeping or giving away), you will need only the keys and ring bases. Glue and enjoy!

Tutorial

4 Organizer

Organizer Your local craft store has cardboard boxes in various sizes. Get several that will be perfect for organizing your home office or craft room. Gather keys and then glue to the cardboard boxes. You will need to remove or flatten the underside of the keys first, of course.

5 Magnet

Magnet This is probably one of the more popular ways to** reuse computer keyboards**. This is because these magnets look awesome cool and are incredibly easy to make. You simply attach magnets to the underside of the keys you plan to use. That's it, really.

6 Lampshade

Lampshade Isn't this lovely? Yes, this will need the circuit sheet under the keys as well. Other materials to gather are light source, metal tin, glue, packing tape, hole punch, and a screwdriver. Check out the link for the assembly.

Tutorial

7 Choker

Choker After you make a keyboard ring, you can use some of the extra keys to make a necklace. You can even spell out words for this particular computer keyboard DIY. How about PANIC? Or LOVE? Or your name?

Tutorial

8 Frame

Frame Making this is pretty much similar to creating the desk organizer. Get a plain frame and glue keys onto it. Methinks this will also work with photo frames made of cereal boxes.

Inspiration

9 Art

Art You can use keys to make art in the vein of typography or text style. This "You Are My Type" one is a great example. Cute, right?

Tutorial

10 Zen Garden

Zen Garden This is probably my favorite among these computer keyboard DIYs. I love that the keys were also used to make the miniature sand rake. Very clever.
