Every once in a while, you’re bound to have someone offer you some sort of oddball item in mass quantity.    You’ll be tempted to accept them, but you’ll have no idea what you can possibly do with them.  What should you do?  Well, you can always do what reader Robin did via our Facebook fan page and ask DSC!

Robin’s mother-in-law made her a very tempting offer:  a whole stack of wicker paper plate holders.  What can you do with this picnic staple besides stabilize flimsy plates?  So far, other readers have suggested using them decoratively underneath house plants or spray painting them different colors and hanging them as a grouping either on an interior wall or to dress up an outdoor space.  If you had a bunch of them, what would you do?
