Cute Salt and Pepper Shakers Made from 35mm Film Canisters

The MoMA Store used to sell these nifty salt and pepper shakers made from 35mm film canisters for $35 a pop. You might not want to make your own though — we hear you shouldn’t keep any food products inside used canisters because film rolls leak poisonous chemicals that can’t be washed out. Shucks.

    Camping stores used to sell sealable salt and pepper lids for film cans.
