One of the most satisfying projects to make when using recycled materials to make something, has to be projects for storage! I love using egg cartons, and even old coffee cans, to make storage containers, and have used saved egg cartons to make bathroom organizers, bead trays for beading, yarn and thread catchers whenever I crochet or hand sew, and even used them to display (and store) little tiny knick knacks.

I really like how easy it is to recreate this painted design! I love recycled crafts, so this is definitely on my to try list!

I have seen so many crafts using egg cartons lately! I'm starting to think I actually should make one... This is such a cute and vibrant way to organize your workspace. I love the colors and the unique idea. Plus, you feel like a kiddo again making crafts with egg cartons! Who remembers those egg carton caterpillars that we made in grade school?
