Plastic Bag Caddy #Upcycle

I had this tall, plastic container from some wet wipes that I had saved in hopes of being inspired to create something useful . #Upcycle it.
While I was cleaning out the condo for the renters , I decided this would make a great storage for plastic bags. More importantly we were going to be in our camper for nearly a month and this would be a great slimline way to corral my bags. 

 Digging through my scrapbook papers I found a very pretty , nautical inspired page to cover the face of the plastic container.
Hot glue was the quickest way to cover the container with the pretty paper.

 Really so easy to measure and cut the paper to size and glue.
 Add a little embellishment like this piece of jute.
 And a seashell, of course.

 Oh and I forgot to tell you that I cut the mermaid from the paper and aged around the edges with Ranger's Distress Ink using a piece of household kitchen sponge. I glued her on with Mod Podge. #CoastalBohemian

This was a simple little something that I needed. It works for the camper and has a little more character than just a plain old plastic recycled container. 
 It's slimline so I can tuck it pretty much anywhere in the camper and it fits. 

With love and gratitude,
