Upcycling Plastic Pots Tutorial

upcycle plastic pots
Above is a photograph of a recent upcycling project.  This was an empty Yoghurt Pot, now being used as a container to keep loose hair accessories.

Below is a photograph of the original empty pot. You could use any empty plastic pot, I have seen similar ice-cream and candyfloss pots.

Wash the container out and dry.
Measure the width and depth of the pot and cut out the appropriate size from the Sticky Back Plastic.
Then apply to the pot.
This was an easy and quick project.  I have seen many people re-use empty pots for various reasons, but I think this one is a cute idea, and my girls love anything 'pink'. This pot has a handle on so it makes it easy to carry about too!

Have you upcycled any empty pots?  Please share with me your projects if you have.
