As much as I like the extra space where we live in Galveston, we have limited storage for our groceries. I decided to start cleaning up and organizing our cabinets for groceries. I used a DIY container (similar to the container for our laundry room) to hold coffee, baking ingredients, and sugar. The cool part about these homemade containers is that you can put whatever you want in it. Plus, you can label them with the FREE printable name tags, which you can download below! Keep scrolling for a tutorial on how to create this simple container option for your kitchen.

Materials:

Boxes

Scissors

Fabric of your choice

I used small boxes from Target, but you may use larger ones depending on your pantry needs.

Remove all the sleeves from the box and start to cover it with fabric, using hot glue. Make sure the fabric fits well before you glue it onto the box. DIY container for pantry FREE printables name tags (4)

I also added a separate, folded fabric on the front of the box’s top edge. It adds some simple style.

For the name tags, I made them from leftover cardboards (probably a little bigger than a business card). I made rectangular cutouts with spaces in the center. I then glued some big twine rope around the edges to decorate it.
