Another Milk Jug Caddy Completed:
Trash to Splash...Milk Jug to Cute Caddy
|Cute, cute, cute.|
|Of course I forgot to take a pic of how to cut the milk jug but you'll be able to see it in the upcoming photos. I used dear ol' Mod Podge to adhere the pics to the jug.|
|I put the other two pics on the other side of the jug front, so it looks like....|
|This! And added a couple little cut-outs at the top to hide little indentions in the jug.|
|A piece of raffia for a tie on the handle and three overlapped buttons for embellishment. I glued the raffia to the handle after tying it on.|
|So, Legos would go in these caddies per-fect-ly! But since I made one for me, hmmm. Apples?|
|A craft project that you wanted to have on-the-go-ready?|
|How about craft supplies?|
Post a CommentThank you for taking the time to stop by and leave an encouraging comment or question. I read each one!
This past week while cooking dinner and preparing to throw these cans away, I decided they were such a nice round size and very sturdy. They would be great for holding craft scissors, etc. Hmmm. I decided to take them from Trash to Splash with a few craft supplies!
Like my craft room? It's called...the kitchen counter! :) That's where I do my best work.
I cut the paper to fit the sides of the can and then used spray adhesive to make them tacky on the wrong side. Again, the kitchen and some newspaper works just fine for this step!
I covered the cans, then used 2 different circle punches to create some coordinating flowers for the front. And found white buttons to be the crowning touch.
My little Snowman wanted in one of the pics. ; )
This took such little time that I went ahead and covered the lid of an empty ice cream bucket too. In just minutes I have three cute craft caddies made out of trash and on-hand papers. Fun! Thanks for looking...I'll let you go....I'm ready to go put my little caddies to work!
It took just another 15 minutes to make this fun organizing set for my daughter. Two clean veggie/fruit cans and an ice cream bucket were saved from the dump and the budget was saved from purchasing caddies for storage. Just use some spray adhesive, pretty papers, punches, and buttons to make your own cute storage containers in just 15 mintues. Yay!
