ReCycle Those Containers!

Do you have empty plastic containers like this??? This is a really cute project and keeps those plastic containers out of landfills.

Does your little one have the Little Pets Shop characters? If so…this is a adorable project. I remember when I watched two little girls during the summers. We purchased some of these each week, and had quite a collection. Wish I would have thought of this …

First draw with a marker….a door

Then cut out the door sides, leaving the bottom of the door on, and put that flap on outside of container. Then on the side of the container… draw a  little window, then cut out the same way as you did the door…put bottom flap inside..

Now, glue or mod podge some fabric on the flaps, you can even make a window like below on the other side….add little curtains with glue.

Here is another….because one is not enough for all the little pets…easily add flowers around the door with permanent markers.

You can make many windows at different levels, with the flap inside for them to sit on.

You can decorate with ribbons, stickers, just about anything. Make each one different..

Have fun with this…using your own decorating personality.

My brain is in overdrive again….I was thinking…smaller containers could be used like this for fairy gardens. Just purchase the small pebbles (they have bags of them at dollar stores) glue them onto the jug, add moss, sticks around windows and door…how cute.
