Laundry Detergent Bucket Re-Purpose

You know those buckets the laundry detergent pods come in?
Well, I just couldn't throw it away because it's a sturdy bucket and I
knew I would find something to use it for. I refilled this one for months
and then we switched back to liquid detergent.

After making my DIY Yarn Wrapped Wreath, I had all that leftover yarn and
I needed to get it hidden from Grandboy before he wrapped the whole house with it.

I decided that bucket would be the perfect storage for my yarn.

I had gotten some super cute tape and I decorated the bucket with it
to hide the product label and to make it cuter.

I really have no pattern going with the tape, I just added some here
and there like a crazy woman until the product label was covered.

It's the perfect size and it has a lid and handle, what more
could I ask for. I'm all about finding ways to re-purpose things.

Whoop! It's Friday!!
Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Great idea. I love to save plastic containers such as peanut butter, margarine and salads because they're free and the kids can see through them.

  5. Always like upcycling....unfortunately my most recent use of a saved bucket (it was a BIG laundry detergent one from Sam's) was used to catch rain on Saturday we had a horrific storm and suddenly had a leak in the hallway! I like YOUR upcycle job MUCH better :-)
