As soon as she saw Pottery Barn Kids’ paper-wrapped bucket, Anna from My Life and Kids knew she could make her own. Anna used new paint cans from the hardware store and simply wrapped them with patterned scrapbook paper using Mod Podge. These are great for toy storage or used as “gift bags” as Anna did for a friend’s baby shower.

It’s really as simple as cutting and gluing! And with all the craft paper options out there, the possibilities are pretty much endless.
