Small jars are awesome.

Screw the lids to the underside of a wood shelve/table and put stuff in them and they are up and out of the way.

Spray paint the lids so they are matching and used them to store small items (nails, screws, false eyelashes, small children toy parts). Also you could paint them to make them prettier.

Save them for the holidays and turn them into snow man heads (I remember doing this as child) and give small gifts in them.

Package homemade baby food in them to be able to take it with you.

Cut and flatten the pieces of the cups (maybe using some parchment paper and a heat gun if weight alone won't flatten it) and use it for a notebook cover like this:

rusty cast iron pans can be re-seasoned and be used again, it takes some work but is worth it. i only use cast iron and when properly seasoned it is like a teflon pan. i even had some that looked like they would never be usable and they look like new after reseasoning.

question= what can i do with empty insulin bottles

Fill them with glitter, beads etc top with cork (glue gun sealed) and label them fairy dust! Cute gifts for little girls or for the garden on string etc. Clean well!

Question: What can I do with an pair of plain black high heeled shoes?

Umm, black court shoes:
clip hairbows on the toes,
cover with black glitter then seal
paint with white stripes a-la Tim Burton

or if they are completely wrecked, poke some holes in the soles and grow grass in them?

You can add elastic and make them into headbands, or add a few unique touches and make them into retro bracelets.

A couple of more things to do with largish mussel shells-pour in wax, add a wick, make candles. Drill holes and hang them up as part of a beachy mobile. Use one on a dresser to hold change and such. Add one to a terrarium. Add one to a fairy house, as a sunken pool.

And old potholders and curtains?
Can you cover the potholders with fabric, to make them new potholders, or make them into hotpads?
Old curtains? Hard to say, without knowing what kind of fabric, or what it looks like. Make pillows?

What can I do with a silverware basket, the kind that goes in a dishwasher?

What can I do with a silverware basket, the kind that goes in a dishwasher?

i realize this is a bit late! BUT

i presume it has holes in it? in which case really easy to weave floss or wool to decorate, or add beads or ribbons. then use it to store things,
stationary: pens, scissors paint brushes ect
or maybe some dry or fake flowers
or maybe make up

or if u have a kid, for storing there little bits and bobs Smiley 

i was wondering if anyone had any ideas for these beauties:


i think they're pine!? but could be completely wrong, the shorter one is about 138 cm and the taller about 158 cm

i love the way they look with the bark stripped off (so would like them visible),  they seem pretty strong, the only thing i can really  think of is some kind of chair,

any other ideas?

thanks Smiley

You can use them in form of frame ends of a painting, posters or photos. It would give a rustic, raw and rough look. You can use some varnish on them to make a better look of them.

How about....
Screwing little vine eyes or hooks into them, hanging bead strings from them and using them as bead curtain tops
Using them as one (front) corner for a set of shelves
In the garden one could be a support for a bird bath
What length would you want for a walking stick? (you may have to sand down the spikes a little)

What can I do with 30 blackbird feathers?
