DIY Easy Upcycled Planter - Made with Washi Tape and an Empty Vinegar ContainerI use so many gallon sized containers of vinegar every month – for everything from a homemade after shower spray to a natural and inexpensive laundry softener – that I wanted to  figure out something I could actually use these plastic containers for rather than just tossing them into the recycling bin. One of the quickest and easiest ways I thought of to upcycle these containers is to re-use them as pots for plants.

To make these pots, simply cut off the top of the container with sharp scissors – I used a knife to get started – wash thoroughly, then wrap with strips of your favorite washi tape. You can also make a small drain hole in the bottom if needed. Leave some of the plastic on your new pot exposed and you’ll be able to tell by how dark the soil is, whether or not it’s time to water.

I put one of my pepper plants in my pot while it’s waiting to be transplanted into the garden. However, these would be perfect for using container succulent gardens and for planting your favorite flowers and annual herbs.

Once I have three more of these vinegar containers emptied and ready for upcycing, I’m planning to use them with a dowel and eye hooks to create some new wall storage in my office.

DIY Storage Box Organizer Made From Recycled Pantry Boxes

I was recently inspired by a DIY Recycled Cereal Box Drawer Dividers Craft Project that I found on I Heart Organizing that I decided I wanted to make my own. I had a perfect box – one from a shipment of eco-friendly craft kits from Artterro that I thought would work perfect – no drawer required – giving me even more organized storage space than my already in use desk drawers.

Using a ruler, pencil and utility knife I first cut strips of scrapbook paper to match the sizes of the boxes we had chosen. I used the instructions at I Heart Organizing as a guideline. Although I used whatever available boxes I managed to coax from the pantry as I’m not especially big on cereal. Next, I attached the scrapbook papers to the boxes with tape, then applied strips of washi tape to the corners to add a decorative touch.

Once the washi tape was on all four corners of the boxes, I put packing tape over the washi taped corners to keep them in place and for extra stability.

Then I placed all of the dividers inside the box. They really are the perfect size for arts and crafts supplies – including my much loved washi tape.

Lastly, I finished off my storage box by adding scrapbooking papers to the outside. Although it would be equally nice to use paint.
