Lindsay Gill: Upcycle formula containers

Upcycle formula containers


The credit for this idea goes to my mom who is physically incapable of throwing away a good container.  What to do with all of those empty formula containers?  I found some Washi tape at Target (it took me a bit of googling to find the name of it, I thought it was "wasabi" tape..)  They also have Washi sheets for larger pieces.  (Side note: Target also has a gift aisle now?)




I removed the label (though I think the tape would cover the Similac label) and just wrapped the tape all around.  You don't even need scissors, you can just rip the tape.  I did a two-tone design shown above.  

Now I can use this to contain make-up brushes...tea bags...nail polish...sewing parts...or one for each since we have so-darn-many!  It looks like there are a ton of cute Washi tape designs on Etsy, too.  

Do you have any other ideas to upcycle formula containers?

  1. I like your idea! This year I am doing all diy gifts and this is perfect because I too am a container junkie and I've been saving formula containers for months not really sure what to do with them until now. Thank you for sharing and please keep the crafty ideas coming.
