How can I upcycle insulin vials?
I have been saving empty insulin vials for a while now and have about 20 of them. I know there’s a project there somewhere but I just can’t think of one. I’m kind of out of my element here because I’m not real inventive with things like this. Here’s a picture of one. They’re about 2” tall. I remove the metal lid and label.

Hi Zard: I have a zillion of the darn things, too, both the shorter Humalog and the slightly taller Lantis bottles. What I did with some of mine was to give them to someone who was getting married and she stuck them in little baskets, surrounded them with fake grass, put water in them and little cut flowers for her centre pieces and on the tables. It was really cute! I use mine, filled with different coloured water, like a rainbow, glued them to a couple of paint stirrers that I painted light pink and put them on the sunny windowsil. Really cute sun catchers:) Some I put dark blue water in and then varied the shade going to the next colour on the colour wheel. That was cute, too:) Good luck
I used small amber bottles to create snowman ornaments for Christmas https://www.homeroad.net/2018/12/amber-bottle-snowman-ornaments.html
Here's a fun idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASbuixWw1N8
Attach to fairy lights or LED lights string. Just clean the bottle remove top and gently push the bulb into bottle and seal opening with hot glue. Now you have a unique light string.
They would be cute as tiny vases each with a single flower or stem lined up on a shelf.
Keep the lids and fix eye hook in top, then fill with something pretty and hang from Tree or old light fitting to make a mobile or light fitting.
You could attach hooks and make Christmas ornaments, just decorate the outside with wrapping paper, frosting for glass, beads glued on.
