Should I take this from the trash? Creative help!

concretenprimrosesMay 22, 2008

I posted this in Garden junk, and they suggested you all would know what to do with this stuff!...The electricians are here bringing the elevator up to a code change that happened this year. I noticed that they put a 5 or 6 foot length of wire which is covered in thick shiny metal (not copper) that winds/coils around it, about 3/4 inch diameter. IT is very flexible and wants to be in a loose coil. I don't think it would stay together if I pulled the wire out. Suggestions? or should I leave it to go to the dump? Also recently found a big plastic drinking water bottle that goes to a cooler. What can I do with it? Mini green house comes to mind of course.

Or I could put a snake head on the wire thingy, paint the bottle to look like an apple and wind the snake around it! I think my dh would divorce me tho...

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Can you post some pics of the wire. Maybe if we see it, we can come up with some ideas. I think a mini green house out of the cooler bottle is a fantastic idea though.
