I Went To The Moon and Hooked Some Stars
Using a wood burner, I bore holes in a jar that used to have vitamins in it. It allows for easy access to my crochet hooks. Alternately, you could use the jar for paint brushes or pencils. I crocheted a beanie for the lid and stuffed it with some left-over yarn, so the lid could double as a pin cushion.
