    I've 5 empty peanut butter containers - soon to have 6 - that I would love to turn into something crafty, but I don't know what to do with them.

    Something other than just regular ol' storage containers.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know about turning them into something else, but what about decoupage? I do that with vases. Color themes, magazine pictures, I even have one in my room done with pieces of sheet music.

    Presuming they're clear you could make a variation on snow scapes with them. I have a jar with sand, some gravelly pebbles and sea shealls filled with slightly blue water, it's my ocean jar.

    do what i did....hot glue some sticks and stuff on there and put some soil on the inside and you have a great, nature ashtray. I even found a stick that could hold a cigarette perfectly so you can rest it in one of the twigs if you have to go somewhere.
     
  5. This isn't a crafty suggestion, but I've started saving jars and such and reusing them as tupperware. It's a good way to recycle old containers. Store extra food in them, drink out of them, or whatever.

    Birdfeeder. Or squirrelfeeder, whichever gets to it first.


    Cut holes in the bottom, but not right to the bottom...so there's a little dish of seed. Hot glue some sticks or something for the birds to sit on, put a staple and twine in the lid and hang it on a strong branch. The screw top will make it easy to refill.

    You could fill it with dried corn for squirrels and leave it on a table or bench somewhere outside, too.

    Nyny that's a great idea, I might have to try that, I was going to use the next jar as more bead storage, but that sounds more fun.
