How many of you bring home plastic grocery bags from the store and shove them under the sink to use for later?
*raises hand* I’m guilty.
I save all plastic bags because I often use them as trash bag liners in my bathrooms. I also cut them up and make plarn to make bags, rugs and other random “stuff” with.
Since my husband informed me that I was one plastic trash bag away from an episode of hoarders, I decided that I should probably come up with an easier storage solution quickly.
Luckily, I cruise Pinterest more than the average person, so I had kept this handy tutorial over at Tatertots and Jello around for a rainy (err… snowy) day activity.
DIY Grocery Bag Holder
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
I am listing out my supplies that I used because the tutorial above calls for fabric, and I used scrapbook paper for my project.
- 12 Plastic shopping bags
- Round cleaning wipes container
- Scrapbook Paper
- Paper Cutter
- Mod Podge (I used the glossy for paper)
- Foam Brush
Please visit this post on Infarrantly Creative for instructions on how to roll the plastic bags and adhere the paper to the container to complete this project.
After I completed this project, my husband looked at me, looked at the decorated container and rolled his eyes. He pulled a bottle of pop from the refrigerator and said, would you like to use this too after I’m done with it. Why yes, Mr. SmartyPants, I would. Thus is the life of a crafter.
Oh, and once I showed him what the container had it in AND the extra space that we now had under our sink… he shut his mouth.
