1. Take an empty cylindrical box of salt (I used Morton's).
2. Cut the top and clean it thoroughly.
3. Peel off the wrapper and scrape off any leftovers of the label.
4. Decorate it with your favorite picture, stickers, ribbons or a knitted tubular sweater.
5. Put in some coins to give it a heavy base to avoid any tripping.
6. Use it as a pencil holder.
