Simple Trick Can Transform Your Cheap Plastic Bins Into Something Cute!

Prepare to spend your weekend crafting. This awesome project has our two favorite DIY aspects wrapped into one: organization and making something cute for the house. And of course, the very best part of every DIY creation, saving money.

Lindsay from Tales From a Cottage wanted some cute storage bins for her home. She needed something that was going to be sturdy but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. So, she came up with a brilliant way to avoid the overpriced cost of beautiful fabric bins.

“I’ve been on the quest for some cool bins that I feel are affordably priced,” Lindsay wrote on her blog post about the project. “I’ve been all over, and for what they are made of, I just can’t seem to justify what they are asking for these bins.”

So she headed over to crafters heaven, the dollar store, where she found what she needed.

“They were the perfect size for what I was looking for,” Lindsay wrote. “I snatched up three of them for a total of $3.”

Then she cut a square of fabric and placed it upside down on the table. Then she sprayed the bottom of the bin with an adhesive and placed it in the center of the fabric. She made cuts in the corners to fit it into the bin and folded the fabric over the sides of the bin, spraying the bin with adhesive as she folded the fabric.

“You may need to pull it off a couple of times until you get it nice and smooth,” Lindsay wrote.

Lindsay also made sure her pieces were long enough so that they could cover the bottom of the basket for a clean look. Now she had her inexpensive organizing bins and you can too!
