Burlap Wrapped Diaper Box


I'm pretty sure everyone has seen this pin on pinterest, or at least something similar. 
Photo from Mandy's Krafty Exploits


With all the diapers we received as gifts, I knew I had tons of supplies to make one of my own.  I changed it up a little bit from the tutorial in the first pin.

What you need:
Diaper Box
scissors
fabric (I chose burlap*)
Hot Glue
Ribbon

Using scissors, I cut the flaps off the top of the box leaving it wide open.

*As I began to wrap the box in the burlap, I noticed that the printing on the box was showing through, so I painted the box black to cover it up. After that dried...

I wrapped the box in burlap like I was wrapping a gift with wrapping paper, using hot glue along the way to make it stick.
I made sure that there was enough burlap at the top (opening) of the box to tuck inside and glud down (removing the need for a liner).
I glued some ribbon around the top to make it more decorative.

It is the perfect size to fit underneath the side table in Sweet P's room, where it sits holding all her stuffed animals. Best part was that I had everything I needed at home, so this cost me NOTHING!

  19. I like to do similar things too with cardboard boxes and decorative papers! ^__^

    Thank you for your sweet comment. And I wish you all the best with the delivery AND for after that! My baby was born almost a month early so we were completely in a rush to prepare everything. I'm sure you'll do just fine like the rest of us new moms. You go, girl!

  21. Hi! Followed you over from A Creative Princess blog hop. Love this! Looks so cute. Might give this a try with the next box of diapers. I sure could use more toy bins, and this is a cute and frugal way to do so.

  22. What a great idea! We've had multiple fabric boxes -- which my boys somehow seem to destroy, no matter how hearty they are.

  28. That looks so cute!! Love it!! I'm going with cloth diapers, so I don't have any boxes. How wide are those diapers boxes? Maybe I could take some boxes off the hands of some of my friends....
