Flowerpot String Dispenser
Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2003
Bring a favorite flowerpot indoors, turn it upside down, and you have a charming way to keep your kitchen string neat and accessible.
Choose a clean pot with a bright glaze, and place it over the ball of twine, threading the end through the drainage hole.
Pull out the string and snip lengths for tying herb bouquets or trussing a chicken.
Try this idea with wayward balls of twine and cord in your crafts closet, too.
