I've stopped playing, and I don't really want to waste several hundred dollars. So, I'll put it towards a crafty endeavor if someone has a clever idea (:

The flute made me think of old metal clarinets being made into lamps.  Found these pictures, and I see there's a flute lamp in the collection ...

haha when I stopped playing, I just sold it...  If you sell it, you make a pretty penny that you can spend on other crafty endeavors...

I can't really think of anything for the flute, but the case could make a pretty cool makeup case or, like... a sewing box, if you sew...  Just rip out all the guts of it and then cover the inside with fabric....  You could like...  Decoupage the outside...

I don't know...

If you want to do something really nice with it (although not crafty), you could donate it to an organization called Hungry for Music (www.hungryformusic.org).  They collect donated musical instruments and give them to underprivileged children who would love to learn to play music but can't afford to buy an instrument.  It might not be crafty, but you'd be giving someone else the gift of music.  Oh-- and it would also probably be a tax deduction!

If it's a decent flute, sell it or give it away! If you sell, put that cash towards crafts, as idiosyncracy said, but whatever the outcome, at least don't destroy a precious instrument. They're meant to be passed along and most of all - played

All it takes is a new bag to make a girl smile, and one smile can change the world.

The flute lamp is cool, though I'd probably electrocute myself trying to put it together, so I think I may just sell it, as you guys have suggested.

The case idea sounds great, and I have just the fabric that I've been meaning to use...

Thanks, guys (:

I know I'm a little late, but schools all over are in need of musical instruments for the kids who can't afford them...
