What can I do with large plastic pretzel containers?

by K

Any suggestions on what I can make with large plastic pretzel containers? I have about five of them, don't know why I saved them, but I did! Wondering if anyone has a crafty (easy) suggestion.

    I use them as canisters for dog food and treats

    What comes to mind is pet food storage or birdseed. If you have children/grandchildren use it for small toy storage.

    You could put wine corks in it for a cork project.

    Hope these brainstorms help.

    How large are these? Gallon, quart, 5 gallons? Do they have lids? Store homemade laundry detergent, fill them up with spiced popcorn, keep pet food fresh in these, store pasta in them, make homemade trail mix, fill it up and set on the counter, great for storage in utility and bathrooms (hold lots of little things). And these make great containers to fill and give a theme gifts. What college student wouldn't love to receive full of shampoo, conditioner, make up, hair accessories, etc. The possibilities are endless. Have fun and personalize this just for you and your family!

    You can use them to store small amount of paint you want to save from a larger can.

    Hello K, how about storing small garden tools in them, it would keep them from rusting!

    Also use these to store gardening stuff in (the smaller items like quick couplers, spray nosels, etc.).
