Quick Upcycling Project

I've long been a fan of these small plastic containers found containing toys in a certain chocolate egg which my kids adore (ok I'll admit I'm partial too!). They are a great little container and I have ended up using a few for holding small component items. They have tight fitting lids and are well sealed but they do have a flaw that they dont stand upright. So I made this little egg holder from a scrap bit of timber after a few experiments working out the best size hole. I cut the holes with a 32mm diameter hole cutting bit and its a tight fit for the egg so they are held firmly enough that you can wave the device about and they don't detach. I may drill another small hole so I can hang this (and more that I make) from a more reason to guzzle chocolate eggs!!
