Wow! There are a TON of cool ideas here. Love to see this kind of creativity with a tool we might otherwise ignore.

like it very much you can do so much for so little

Try using Krylon Fusion for plastic...Walmart carries it in many colors...Also you can use low temp hot glue..I haven't tried this but I hope it helps...

I have a million (well, lots) of those plastic or vinyl flower pots that come with flowers in them. Is there any way I can decorate or paint them?
