Okay, here's an organizing and storage idea that (I hope) will make you smile.
I rescued a huge bag of unwanted, old-fashioned plastic hair rollers, and have been working out ways to use them.
As one with naturally curly locks, I knew I'd have to repurpose the dickens out of them. After giving them a bleach-and-water bath, I started playing around with ideas. My previous post showed how I turned them into some offbeat jewelry:
As well as a sweet little Christmas ornament.
All very well, but I still had fifty rollers to use up. Here is the answer: these cylindrical darlings will organize your life! Simply stuff some rollers into various upcycled containers and WHEE! Storage for all kinds of things! Look inside this cut-down milk bottle:
Add paint brushes...
Here's a nekkid peanut can:
I dressed it up with a necklace, but it would be a perfect blank slate for decoupage, paint, glitter or whatever. Stuffed it full of hair rollers. Now it's a cool and supremely functional art tool caddy.
Works equally well for makeup and bathroom-counter storage.
And here's my favorite use! Not exactly organization - more like home decor. Jam a bunch of rollers tightly into any kind of vase, like so:
Add water and foliage...it'll hold stems of all sizes and become a simply marvelous flower frog!
It's waterproof, easy to clean and fits into anything - you can turn any odd container into a working vase.
Ain't that fun?
I do so hope you enjoyed this one!
