DIY Monster Storage Containers

Monster Storage Containers

DIY Difficulty Level: 1 (Easy)

Grrrr...  Parents hate messes!  Corral knick-knacks in these adorable monster storage containers crafted from plastic bottles.


  • Shampoo and Bodywash Containers
  • Box cutter
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Vinyl stickers and/or googly wiggle eyes


  1. Be sure the containers are empty and remove labels.  You can completely clean them after you cut them; it’ll be easier!  Cut out the desired shape for each monster. Antennae, eyes and hands can be cut out from remnants of the plastic.  

  2. Wash and dry each container, and smooth out any edges with scissors or box cutter.  

  3. Now it’s time for the fun!  Glue on hands and any "extras", then sticker away.  Cut shapes from vinyl stickers or use googly wiggle eyes and let the kids create their own monsters!
