Duct Tape Storage Container

Hi duct tape fans! Today we’re going to make a storage bin out of duct tape and an oatmeal container. You wouldn’t believe the amount of materials you can find by rummaging through a recycling bin. I enjoyed this craft because I could use all my old scraps of duct tape. It was fun experimenting with different heights for each stripe. Because the container is so deep, a  shower scrubber is hidden at the bottom to give the markers a boost (shh!). Here are the steps to create this container:

Shower Scrubber


1. Find a clean oatmeal container or other round tub.

2. Cover with stripes of tape. It’s fun to use different sizes for each stripe.

3. Put shower scrubber at bottom of container.

Wow, only three steps! This project doesn’t take very much time to make, but be sure to layer the stripes as neatly as possible. I won’t be posting for a few weeks, but make sure to explore DTD for more crafts, and grab the new button!
