Use Diaper Boxes for a Decorative Storage Toy Box

With twins, we go through a ton of diapers. We order diapers online to save money and they come in huge boxes that I hate to just pitch. With the tons of toys that get strewn around our house, I thought the diaper boxes would be the perfect way to store the loose toys.

Decorative Storage Toy Box Supplies

:: Glue Gun
:: Diaper Box
:: Scrap Fabric (a yard will cover the diaper box)
:: Scissors

DIY Steps

{Step 1} Measure and cut a fabric scrap to the size of the box.

{Step 2} Wrap the box like a present keeping the fabric straight and even and secure with hot glue.

{Step 3} You can finish it with a flat front or be creative.  I had quite a bit of scrap, so I rolled it up for a more fancy girly look.

Project Cost

The only thing that you may have to purchase is the the scrap fabric. I found a yard of this purple elephant fabric for only $1.99 in the clearance bin!

Also, use your coupons for local craft stores and watch for sales for particular patterns and styles.

    Looks so cute. I havent tried these with fabric since I did not want to spend even that money ;-) I have been doing this ever since my 3 yrs old was born. I dont even bother with fabric, I just make them with wrapping paper or card stock or old calendars. They last for a long, long time and is cheap.
