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

I don't know of any cute crafts, but I always save the creamers and the coffee containers for holding more craft supplies!! LOL

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
