Recycled Container Craft

Continuing on my year of discovering, I want to craft more. Tonight was just the right night to do a little craft. If you found your way here from Instagram, welcome! Feel free to poke around, see what is here and share!

So, today at work I used the last of these wipes and was left with this container.  I could have thrown it away but decided to try something crafty.

 

I have been seeing on my Facebook feed yarn bowls, if you don’t know what I am talking about go google it and come back….

Back? Like I was saying, I want a yarn bowl but it is just not in the budget right now. Then this little gem landed in my reach and I was going to make the best with what I have.

First thing was to peel off the label. I got lucky because it was just a sticker. I ended up with just a white .

From here, all I needed was to add Mod Podge to help the fabric stick to the tube. I just happen to score a deal at my local big box store last year and think I will be set for a long time. 

I know my Hubby was happy to see me finally use this fabric which I just had to have a couple of months ago. I knew I was holding on to it for a reason and I am glad I did. I folded a bit of the fabric down and ironed it so it would create a straight line which would make the top a clean start. 

All that was left was to cut to length and mod podge fabric to the bottom but not to the top because I felt this would keep the yarn from coming out right. This was a really quick easy craft. This would be a great craft for groups or little kids.

Here is the final result.

Until we next meet,
