Upcycled Baby Snack Container

Having an 8 month old means I have plenty of baby food containers lying around. Instead of throwing them away, I decided to upcycle a few of them to use as cotton ball and q-tip containers.

Materials needed:
plastic baby snack containers
jute
hot glue
artificial flowers or other embellishments


Start at the top and put a dab of hot glue in the ridge where the lid snaps on. Press down your piece of jute and start wrapping. I didn't figure this out until the second container and it went much more smoothly than the first.
Continue wrapping until the entire container is covered. Hot glue the end piece into one of your ridges to hide it.
Hot glue a pretty flower or other embellishment to your container.


Voila! You now have a pretty storage container and there is one less piece of plastic in a landfill.  Don't forget to buy baby some more treats!

  2. Well, my own 'baby' will be 21 next Sunday, so I don't have any of these containers. But I definitely plan to try this with other 'throwaways.' I just love the bright Gerbera daisies against the neutral rope. It's very cheerful and clever!
