While I’m on my recycling trip at the moment, can anybody think of any ideas for what I could use these for?
My husband bought it home from work for me as its original use was the spool for some welding wire. He mentioned that they throw out lots of these each week so it would be an item that I could have on a regular basis. They are made of sturdy, rigid plastic and measure 12″ wide by 4″ high.
I already have a few ideas in mind. One of these could be a support to stand a plant pot on. Also, if the middle section of the spool was removed and more than one was stacked on top of each other, it could make an ideal planter for carrots or any plants that require a long growing depth. I even thought that they could be turned on their sides and half buried in the ground and used as edgings along raised beds or paths.
Any other ideas?
