DIY Plastic Bag Holder for the Nursery

oatmeal container bag holder3If you are like me, with a combination of using cloth and disposable diapers, you end up using a diaper pail and a garbage can (for various reasons.  I’ll spare you the details).  I try to reuse and recycle things whenever possible, so I gather up all the grocery bags used to bag apples, veggies, etc and stuff them in the diaper area of the nursery (above the reach of the little one).  But it was becoming such a mess and eye sore.

So, I did some Pinterest searching and came up with this trick to recycle an oatmeal container into a bag holder.  There are some super cute ideas,

  • Oatmeal container (empty)
  • Scissors
  • Scrapbook paper (2 sheets)
  •  Pencil
  • Glue


And Here’s how it turned out! Helps my “diaper station” to be much improved!
