Make a simple one-of-a-kind pencil or paintbrush holder that also displays family photos. Black-and-white snapshots slip between two clear glass flea market apothecary jars for an instant photo gallery. If you can't find apothecary jars, substitute any two graduated sizes of glass containers, such as florist's vases or kitchen glassware.
I love this simple idea. Look for different glass jars and candle holders at the dollar store or craft store, and reprint some photos in black and white from your childhood or your parent's childhood to put inside.
