So I basically have an endless supply of these....

what_to_do_with_these.jpg.4c171baebb004a2260924d152eb856cb.jpg

and I really don't want to throw them in the recycling unless I'm sure I don't need them for something cool that I just haven't though of yet.

But as I've got about 400 of these laying around so far (they are the inner needle tip protector for the tips I use for my daily shot, so are sterile and only the outer protector is put back on before going in the sharps bin) and growing, so as I still haven't really thought of anything, what do you think?

-Glue some sort of bead do-hicky on top, and a base on the bottom, and paint them to be Force Field Projectors.

 

-Painted as Futuristic  Roadcones

 

-Inverted, and glued as a smokestack onto a section of horizontal cardboard tubing to make a steam boiler.  In fact they could be glued as smokestacks all over any sort of dwarves or steampunk structure.

 

-They can be used as the mantlet for any number of Sci-Fi gun emplacements.

 

- They could easily be converted into flight stands.

With a piece of clear plastic (say from a Reaper blister pack) glued to the wide end, they could be searchlights.

Pedestals for prized possessions (ie PC loot) like the grail or crystal skull.  ::D:

 

Flip upside down and fill with resin for a bird bath or drinking fountain.

Line a bunch up and glue a popsicle stick to the top and bottom, you've got a balustrade.

 

Or flip it over and fill with glue and coarse sand to make a brazier.

Peg legs for ogre pirates?

 

End (bottom) sections for modular fencing.

 

Cut the "post" off, and put a round bead/ball bearing for a crystal ball.

 

With that in mind, cut the post at an angle and put a book on top to make a lectern or other podium.

 

Glue a trimmed popsicle stick across two or more for a bench.

 

Glue three under a round bowl/cup for a monstrous cauldron (WTH is brewing in THAT)?

Modern/Sci-Fi:
Painted orange: Devo hats. 
Or painted NEON orange: futuristic pylons?
Spaceship rocket nozzles.

Fantasy/Supernatural:
Pedestal.  Place a skull, trophy, treasure, crystal ball, etc., atop it.
Brazier.  Invert, paint in metallic colors, place some "burning coals" and/or "fire" inside.

Add a few mechanical-looking appendages to these, and you've got either a bunch of helper constructs for gnomes or a race of pseudo-Daleks.

If you glue the tips together and then glue more to those from several angles you can create a starshaped spaceship of some kind.
