• Fill with glitter or sequins and use for craft projects
• Repurpose as a paper clip or thumbtack holder
• Fill with sugar or powdered creamer for morning coffee
• Use as a container to hold crayons, markers or ribbon
• Decorate with paint or wrapping paper and use for an up-cycled gift basket or flower pot
• Bring it to the beach for making sand castles
• Decorate with paint or tissue paper, tied a ribbon around the neck and use as a flower vase
