Testing Your Creativity

This week we are highlighting glass objects and after looking around the store, we found that our store has way too many glass test tubes! So here are a couple ideas to change boring scientific test tubes into something creative:

The first idea is to turn your test tube rack into a spice rack! After collecting your test tube rack, all you need are labels and spices to fill them up. The rack that you see to your right was created by Dean & Deluca and only costs about 165 dollars. Try making your own and save a few dollars.

The nice thing about a test tube is you can fill it up with almost anything. You can fill them up with beads, glitter, fabric, rocks, or even seeds! To see a seed wedding favor, click here.

This test tube flower vase was found on Design*Sponge! You can either keep the test tubes in their test tube rack or you can use a piece of wood for the base (seen to the left.) Just fill the test tubes up with water and place any type of flowers you want in it!

The last idea is a LED lamp made out of test tubes! It may take a little bit more effort and some electrical engineering, but it should be worth your time! For full instructions, click here!
