I recently had to stop breast feeding and use formula and I found myself having formula containers. I just could not find myself throwing them out without feeling a little guilty and I wanted to recycle them. I guess that is what happens when you are a crafter! I really need to figure out something to do with the extra containers. The first thing that pop into my head was a cookie container. Of course since its Halloween I decided to add something spooky to it.
The first thing I did was grab the containers and went to work on spraying them with black chalk board paint. One of the containers had a gold top and I decided to also paint the other lid gold since it was yellow.
Once it was dried I went ahead and mod podge a skull and bones to one container. I also liked how the gold lid came out. Gold is a wonderful color this season.
The other container I mod podge a spider to it.The spiders I used are Martha Stewart cling. I love how has transparent. My new containers might keep the kiddos from knowing I hidden their cookies in there! The lid was already gold so it was one less thing to do. haha
I have two formula containers that have gotten a complete makeover/recycled. I wonder what I am going to do with the next few formula containers? It is fun to find new uses to every day items you use.
What will you do with your formula containers? Have you done anything with your recycled formula containers?
