As far back as I can remember, my family has always saved and reused grocery bags. So naturally as an adult I do the same. However, they tend to pile up in an unorganized fashion. Today I’m going to show you how to turn an old wipe container into an adorable grocery bag storage container.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Scissors or Rotary Cutter
Mod Podge Glue
Empty Wipe Container
First you’ll want to remove the paper from your wipe container, if you haven’t already. Remove as much of the left over adhesive as you can. Next take a measuring tape and measure around the container. Add an inch to that . For example, my container was 16inches around and I added an inch making it 17inches. After you’ve done that measure the container height wise.
Then you’ll cut your fabric to the size you need.
Once you’ve done that you’ll turn your piece of cut fabric right side down and apply Mod Podge Glue to the back of it.
Next you will wrap the fabric around the container, smoothing out any imperfections as you go.
Where your fabric meets take the excess and fold it under the side that hasn’t been laid down yet and apply glue. This will create a nice seam.*You may see some glue coming through the pretty side of the fabric. Just take your brush and brush it out. Don’t stress, it’ll dry clear. (:
Then you’ll turn your container upside down and let it dry. If you have excess fabric wait until its dry and cut it off or if it’s not too much you can glue it to the bottom.
There you have it ladies and gentleman, a decorative place to store all of your grocery bags.
