Upcycled wipes container to bag holder!

Reuse old wipes containers for plastic bags. This is great for in the car for wet bathing suits and trash. It is also great for by the litter box, you can have the bags you need right there and not have to worry about it looking cluttered and ugly!

Items needed:
Old Wipes Container
1/4 Yard Fabric of Your Choice
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
Wax Paper

I orginally got the idea here: Infarrantly Creative ( The whole Blog is awesome and has great ideas!Check it out!)

First off, Measure your container, easier to do with flexible tape measure. Mine was 7" x 17", I cut it a little big for an overlap and the container was the large wipe container.
 This is the picture before cutting. I used a pen to mark off where I needed to cut. Cut with sharp scissors so that you do not have the frayed edges.
Place your fabric on wax paper and cover with Modge Podge.
Once the fabric is dry of the Modge Podge then put a layer of Modge Podge on the empty wipes container. Line up the fabric with a little overlapping. If you have a edge at the bottom it is okay we can worry with that later. Put Modge Podge over the fabric. I place a rubber band at the very bottom of my wipe container and at the very top to create a seal, there were some air bubbles but it was no biggie.

Let dry over night. After drying cut off edge with a very sharp knife. Put on another layer of Modge Podge being certain to get to the edges.

Wah Lah...finished product!
