My Hook House

 
 This plastic container was originally housing my son's coloring pencils. When those were done, I kept it for a project I might one day dream up and I did. I decided to store my hooks inside, but I didn't like the dreary looks of it and then I thought what kind of a crocheter I would be if I don't make a proper home for my hooks.  



So I made them a house with a lovely window (and a balcony) with lots of flowers and behind the house there is  tree too.


I wanted to make the door a more fairy like, with black hinges and a more elaborate doorknob, but I was too tired for that. All in all, having this is quite pleasurable and whenever I see it on the table it makes me smile.

Very cool!
How do you keep the cozy on the plastic, it seems like it'd slide out when you go to take the cap off?

At first I thought a dash of hot glue would be just fine to keep it on, but I crocheted it so tightly, it's really hard to pull it off.

Its a super cute idea - giving your hooks a cozy 'home' to live in

When I saw this on Flickr I couldn't believe it! Such a great reuse of a plastic pencil case. Really amazing.
