Urn It

Supply chains across the whole globe have been whack recently. And I’m just thinking if there were to be an urn shortage- you would have to get creative. So, I’ve thought of several things that are probably just laying around that could be the perfect urn in a pinch.

1) All those decorations that look like urns

I can’t be the only one who constantly sees these. People in their 70s and 80s have so many decorations in their house that look like urns- but they’re not. Though they look like they’re made for holding cremains, most of them are holding a whole lot of nothing. So in a pinch, visit any person named “Beatrice” and take her decor.

2) Pringles Can

These cans are terrible if your intention is to be able to reach your hand into it without getting stuck. However, if you need to hold a large amount of anything- I think they’re kinda perfect.

3) Hipster Mason Jars

Remember in 2015 when everyone decided that mason jars were the perfect container for everything? I’m talking drinks, salads, cakes, lights, paper notes. The list goes on and on. Well, if they can hold all of that stuff- I think they can hold grandma.

4) 7/11 Slushie cups.

No explanation needed.

There you go, in a pinch- get creative!
