DIY Kid's Art Organizer


This little art supply organizer I made was a fun, easy project. So I thought I'd share with you what exactly I did.


First, I got together a couple of cardboard oatmeal containers and a cereal box. I like the Cheerios boxes because they are bigger than most cereal boxes.


Then I cut them all down to the size I wanted. The oatmeal things were a pain to cut but if you just go slow and trim them afterwards to make them look a little neater, it's not so bad.


Finally, I covered them with colored paper (glued on with just Glue-All or Mod Podge) to finish them up, just like I did in my Notebook Organizer Tutorial. To attach the cups to the box, I used a line of hot glue along the paper seam on the cups and stuck them to the sides of the box.


And there you have it! A cute little storage system for your kiddos! You can even let them decorate it. =) Have fun!
