    1. Incense Bottle - take a 750ml bottle, and with a dremmil drill, drill 1 or 2 holes about an inch from the bottle. Decorate bottle with glass paint, and use a keychain ring to hold incense (to dangle in the bottle). The smoke looks very cool coming out the top.

    2. Fimo Holders - pick 2 or 3 funky colours of fimo clay and roll them around so they look wavy, but not completely mixed together. Mold into fun shapes like mushrooms, butterflies, etc. With an incense stick, poke a couple holes on the top. Bake clay according to instructions, and there you have a new incense holder!

    3. Decorated Wood Holder - take a cheap dollar-store wooden incense holder and decorate the edges with funky beads, groovy buttons, or make extra-long friendship bracelets from embroidery floss to fit the length of the incense holder, and glue on. What's neat about the friendship bracelet idea is it makes it look a bit boho or tibetan-inspired.

    Oooooooh Those are great ideas. :D

    Not that I could expect too many people to make this, but my cousin got an old bottle and put it over a fire and melted it a bit, then squished it all down and put a hold on one end, so its like an incense ashtray kinda:D Then he ran paint all down it while it was still hot and and swirled it around... :D Just looks really cool. :D
