So, in high school my art teacher gave me a box full of glass petri dishes. I probably have like 30 smaller ones and maybe 5-10 bigger ones. I carted them home in my friend's car, and it is a miracle that they did not all break on the drive home, but since that perilous day they have sat unused in the closet.

Well, actually, some of them have seeds sprouting in them right now, but once we plant the seeds in some dirt and pots and stuff, they will be empty and unused again.

Any ideas?

You could paint an image on them and hang them in trees.

I used to use mine as office organizers - you know, hold stuff like paper clips, thumb tacks, pennies and such on my desk or in my drawers.

You could make a hanging frame for them and create a little hanging storage thingy...don't know if i'm making any sense, but i'm visioning a macrame type thing hanging in the corner of your bedroom near your vanity/dressing table.

You could decorate them and give small gifts in them at Christmas time. Little things like necklaces and bracelets or something else small. I got this idea while at Target yesterday. There were two cases of small round metal favor boxes in the clearance stuff. I wish Mom would have let me get them. =/

I'd cover them in polymer clay and use them as candle holders.  Smiley

I'd take some polmer clay, play dough, pipe cleaners, etc and make a replica of a molecule or something. Just fill it up with resin and let it cure. Look up how to work with resin in the jewelry and trinkets forum.

It's the perfect gift for a science teacher or science geek.

Make a creepy mad scientist label for them - something like "eye of newt" or Peter's Pox" and use them for candy dishes at Halloween!  I've seen Martha Stewart do it with beakers so why not petri dishes!
