What you do is write what could be done with the item the previous person has listed.

You could even add a tutorial-recipe-whatever or provide a link if you wish Smiley

When you have added your reply add a new item at the bottom for the next person to answer.

This will hopefully give people new ideas, or remind them of old favourites Smiley

Okay I will start

And for the lightbulb, how about this
http://www.finkbuilt.com/blog/8/
Always wanted to do that one. Or wrap hollowed out lightbulbs with wire and fill with water- a vase! hollow out a bunch and make a bottle tree (but with bulbs... a bulb tree?)

Ok, now... hmm, how about... um... too-small pants?

Perhaps you could donate them to a local school for their drama class or a kindy for there dress up box..

I dont know if there is any way that you could add extra material to the sides to extend them that way.

paint the crate, put a sweet pillow in it and use it as a kitty / small dog bed. 

As for the old jeans, try this:
