Don’t need the crutches, consider some of these ideas

Cool Stool: Love the reused crutches and a bike wheel (could use one from a discarded wheelchair) to make a very cool stool 

Consider making art with your wheel chair

Other Ideas
• Surgical Gloves: Fill with ice and freeze. Makes for an interesting addition to a punch bowl. If you’re going to using your frozen hands (or fingers) in drinks, use the powder free gloves.
