|These are some containers that my students re-purposed.|
They loved being a part of creating the classroom atmosphere, it gave them ownership.
You don't have to have a classroom to do this with yogurt containers. I'm sure you have all kinds of supplies around your house that could use some fun storage.
Here are the materials you need for this project:
- Mod Podge (I prefer matte, gloss tends to reflect flaws)
- Clean yogurt container
- Paint brush
- Paper (scraps of paper work great, so does fabric)
- Knife or Scissors
The steps are simple
First measure the yogurt container so that you know what size to cut your paper. Next cut out sections of paper according to the measurements. Third brush Mod Podge onto the back of the paper. Then adhere paper to container and continue with each section of paper until the entire container is covered. Lastly paint over everything with a thin layer of Mod Podge. Don't be afraid to layer the paper it just adds an artistic quality. We aren't going for perfect here.
