    What I do with mine, is I cut the bottoms off, sink them into the ground leaving about 1" sticking up, fill them with dirt, about 1" below that, and plant my flowers or veggies in them. This keeps those plants that 'wander' in line, and the roots have to go down to get water, and you have about 2" to collect water for your plants.

    Oh, my. Anything! Craft storage comes to mind first. Buttons, screws, nails, pins, paper clips, pens, paint brushes, etc.. Kitchen storage, too. For décor, you'd have to paint them and maybe glue ribbon or twine for a nice effect. You could also use them to plant herbs or seedlings. Think outside the container!

    If you have a bunch of kids (yours & friends) have them pretend they are drums & practice being a band. Take 2 aspirins and sell the containers in the morning.

    Hello Donna; These containers can be used for so many things!!!
    If I had some of them, I would recover them.
    I would save them for the Holidays. It is so easy to fill them with Gifts!!!
    You can fill them with Homemade foods, Cookies, Candy or else you can make a Gift Bucket and fill with several things which the recipient would enjoy having.
    When I use a Container like this, I typically make up a "Themed" Gift.
    I am asked, by some Folks, yearly to make them such a "Themed Gift"
    I enjoy doing this, so much as I am not making a Cookie Cutter present, and also You can use your Imagination which makes life so much more enjoyable for all involved!!!
    I hope that this helps you!! Take Care!

    You can actually bake cookies and use them as containers to gift them with. They look pretty creative with a bow on top. I only give them to family members.
