My Monkey loves Transformers.  Well, not all the Rescue BotsTransformers, but he’s wild about , which are perfect for little hands.  Even the Peanut enjoys these Rescue Bots.  Well, we’ve got a lot of them, and one day the Monkey decided that he wanted to store them in this large plastic Animal Cracker Container.  And I’m willing to do anything that will encourage a 4- and 2-year-old to organize and pick up.  When he started putting them all into this container, I decided to make it a bit more in style for his cool Rescue Bots by using an image that I downloaded from the internet and uploading it into Cricut Design Space to create the Monkey’s very own Upcycled Transformer Logo Container.

Did you know that you can upload your own images into Cricut Design Space? Using Clipart that you can find online, take a basic plastic jug and turn it into a cool Transformer Logo Storage Container for Rescue Bots using the Cricut Explore line of cutting machines and vinyl.

Upcycled, No Sew Diaper Box for Storage

We have a lot of diaper boxes in our house.  Not as many as before, now that the Monkey only wears pull-ups at night, but we’ve got a lot of Huggies boxes sitting around.  Many are in our basement holding toys and clothes.  Overall, I have found that they are incredible durable and strong boxes, and can be repurposed for many things.  We also have a lot of blankets or “woobies” in our house.  The little boys seem to love all of their quilts, receiving blankets and afghans that they have received since their birth, and I’m running out of places to store them.  That got me to thinking that what I needed to do– make my very own upcycled no sew diaper box to store all  boxof the boys’ woobies.  Now I recently bought a huge box of Huggies at Sam’s Club, which I’m going to tell you about later, but realized that the box wouldn’t fit underneath the Peanut’s Crib.  I decided to cover a slightly smaller Huggies box to create a storage container for the Littles’ woobies.
Cardboard diaper boxes are sturdy and great to upcycle. Here's an easy tutorial to cover your own Huggies Diaper box. It's an easy DIY project and you can line the box and personalize the storage with felt letters. Project was sponsored by Huggies Diapers. [Read more…]

Decoupaged Crayon Container with Gerber’s Lil’ Beanies

We just got back from our “unplugging” vacation in the mountains.  (I’ll have details about our trip and suggestions for traveling with Littles in the mountains coming soon!)  We rented a “little tiny house” (as it was labeled by the Monkey) that allowed us to have a base for travels and a place to cook.  Each day we headed out for family adventures and had to stock up on activities and snacks for our day trips.  For the Peanut, we packed Gerber’s Lil’ Beanies, in their super portable, resealable container.  Once we finished the first package of them, I decided to turn it into a personalized, decoupaged crayon container.  It was just the right size for the jumbo crayons, and a great travel size as well.

Are you traveling this summer? Gerber's Lil' Beanies are the the perfect traveling finger food for your young toddlers. Plus, you can turn the tin into a reusable crayon container that is the perfect storage size for your car! All you need is a little paper to decoupage and a few personalized details to make a cute container for your creative Littles! {Post Sponsored by Gerber.}

13+ Ideas for Upcycled Diaper Boxes

As you may recall, I’m in the middle of potty training the Monkey, and of course, the sweet little Peanut is still in diapers.  That means that we have lots of diaper (and Pull-Ups) boxes in our house.  It’s hard not to, given how many Huggies Little Snugglers that we use in our house each week.  In fact, last week, we bought a large box of Huggies Little Snugglers at Sam’s Club.  It was a huge box, and I really liked the shape, as it was shallower in depth than some of the boxes.  I got to thinking of what I might be able to use this diaper box for, and how useful my Huggies Diaper boxes are.  Do you keep your diaper boxes too?  Well here are a few ideas for how to repurpose them– who knew that there were so many options for upcycled diaper boxes?

Not sure what to do with all of the Huggies diaper boxes you have sitting around your house? Well, here are 11+ ideas collected by My Mom Made That. I don't know which one I'm going to make first!

Diet Coke Bottle Wreath

I love Diet Coke.  I mean I love it.  I’m sitting here typing these words with a can of Diet Coke next to me.  And here’s the thing– I will only drink Diet Coke. I make restaurant choices based on the type of soft drinks they carry.   Hey, I’m an Atlanta girl, there is no product in this city other than Coca-Cola!  About a month ago, the Mellow Man came home with a 12-pack of Diet Coke cans, and pointed out that there was new design on cans.  If you haven’t check out a Diet Coke bottle recently, you should!  Just like the bottles and cans with names, there is now a new can and bottle design for the “It’s Mine” campaign with Diet Coke.  The cans have this cool tie-dye looking design, but the bottles, now that’s where the true beauty is.  They are all so different, and so colorful.  I decided to collect the 12 ounce bottles (larger than the traditional 8 ounce bottle) to create a Diet Coke Bottle Wreath.
