I don’t look at things the same way any more. I realize that spray paint can change the world one project at a time but in this case no spray paint was needed believe it or not. No, this time it was all about not using something for it’s original purpose.
See this is a cupcake holder (from Hobby Lobby). It’s used to hold, well, cupcakes.
But you can probably tell by the picture above that those are not cupcakes sitting around it waiting to be frosted and displayed. No, those are small canning jars and cute replacement lids and my sewing machine in the background ruining the picture….(mental note: take the time to stage pictures better.)
This is what I saw when I looked at the cute cupcake holder.
I saw seriously cute storage for all my loose craft things. I have assorted buttons, sequins, pom-poms etc. in the cute little jelly jars.
AND the best part is if you “need” a cupcake holder you just take the jars off and use it for its intended purpose. Two for one baby!
Tell me, do you use an item for something other than it’s intended use? Throw those ideas out there.
HAVE A CRAFTY KIND OF DAY MY FRIENDS!
