Ok this may have been posted before, but I couldn't find any that were these containers specifically...So here goes.

Hubby and I drink a little too much coffee lol and we have alot of these left, but I can't just let them get tossed out.  I love the cool shape of the creamer containers, but I can't figure out what to do with them.  So any help from you crafty divas out there would be great!  Thanks in advance Smiley

I once saw someone use very similar containers (I think they were smoothie drinks) and either sprayed them white or wrapped them in white fleece and made them into snowmen. Sorry I can't remember all the details. They tied a scarf around the narrow part and of course, the top portion was the head. they made a little hat out of felt and decorated it as a snowman. Then they filled them with candy and used them for gifts. hope this makes at least a little sense.  Smiley

you can peel the labels, and fill with an instant drink mix (I love razzzledazzlerecipes.com) and then decorate  and give as gifts- this went over great with my aunts one year....

The smaller ones are just the right size to hold a small ball or skein of yarn, and the hole in the top will keep the yarn from tangling.
The larger one is a good project container as well. 
I made one out of a coffee containter, but I think I gave it away.  Cheesy  I made almost like an apron for the outside, a series of pockets to hold notions/needles etc. If you do that, or anything like that, be sure that you don't do a flat pocket, or you'll not be able to store anything in it.
If you aren't a knitter/crocheter or don't know any, I'm very confident it could be used for just about any craft Cheesy
