1  Re: Bed Platform made out of Milk Crates? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by xgreyoutx on: December 21, 2005 12:11:16 PM
Another great idea for those crates is to take a bunch of them and stack them on their sides, so the open part faces toward you, then use heavy duty zip ties (which are what I think someone else was trying to think of earlier up the page Wink) to hook them together. You can stack them as wide or tall as you like this way and make a inexpensive shelving unit in this style:

Since they're just plastic, you could spray paint them all to be the same color so it looks nice and uniform, or just leave them as they are for a more funky finish.

2  Re: Yogurt Addiction = Yogurt Cups in What the heck can I do with THIS? by xgreyoutx on: December 13, 2005 04:51:01 PM
Soy yogurt is definiately available for sale, so there MUST be a recipe out there to make it at home. *strokes non-existant beard*

People have mentioned some really great ideas for re-using the cups!
I have a couple more suggestions, though. Smiley

If you want to do the planters, but are running low on space, you could string the cups together and hang them.  The plastic is fairly thin, so you should be able to use a hole punch to make a hole in either side of the cup, then pass the string down through the cups from the inside of the hole out, and just knot the string/twine outside the hole to keep them from slipping down.

Also, like you said, I don't think burning candles in them would be a good idea (melting plastic smells AWFUL >_< ), but they would make awesome candle MOLDS.  You can melt down bulk wax or the remains of used candles in a saucepan, then pour the hot wax into the cups.  Line the cups up next to each other, then tie lengths of wick to a pencil and lay the pencil across the cups so that each cup has a wick down through the center and allow the wax to cool and set. Then you can easily cut/rip the plastic away, and voila! Just snip the wicks off under where they tie to the pencil. You could use the really big yogurt tubs and put three wicks in (in a triangle) for a great pillar candle with three flames.  Sometimes it helps to tie the bottom end of the wicks to a small metal washer to weight them and keep them straight and centered. Smiley

Here's a rude diagram incase I didn't explain myself well.

Lastly, you could always decoupage the cups and use them to hold things. Any small craft supplies like buttons or sequins or glitter, etc . (or larger things if you use the larger containers!)

O. M. G.

To whoever mentioned way back using the butt plugs as a heel for a shoe!
That immediately sent me on a google image search for the proper size/style for a heel.
I absolutely want to buy a set of these and do that now!

Hahahahahaha. Abso-freakin-lutely brilliant. <33
