11 ways you can reuse an empty Nutella jar
You might spread it on toast for breakfast or just sneak a spoonful as a midnight snack. But if you're one of the millions of people worldwide with a jar of Nutella in your cupboard, you've probably always assumed that your job was simply to eat Nutella until the jar is empty and then toss it (or recycle it!) before hastening to the supermarket to get a new one. Wrong. The jars are incredibly well-suited to all kinds of household purposes, especially in the realm of arts and crafts. Check this out.
1. As practical containers for small-sized odds and ends
2. Painted yellow, as giant lego heads to help keep a kid's room tidy. They're the perfect shape!
3. Drill a hole in the lid, pop a bulb inside, and there you are! A pretty special lamp.
4. As a candy jar (but keep the lid screwed tightly shut if you have little ones around)
5. Instead of buying wrapping paper or special gift boxes every time you give a gift, simply use what's there.
6. Organizing containers for the kitchen, perfect for nuts, seeds, sugar etc.
7. No more losing pens or markers around the house!
8. Use the lids to make picture frames by just adding a magnet or adhesive to the back.
9. A little creativity and you'll have both great decorations and containers too.
10. Drinking glasses with a screw lid are in, and you can make them yourself.
11. And in a similar twist, you can pick up a pump at the hardware store and make an original soap dispenser.
If this list doesn't give you the perfect pretense to knock back a mountain of Nutella, I don't know what will. Although of course, you can use other more innocent but similarly-shaped jars for any of these tricks as well, if you must!
