I don't know about you, but I'm about to turn off the computer for a bit to start some gift wrapping! Here's a peek at my wrapping paper bucket and how I made it . . .
Easy Wrapping Paper Storage Bucket
(NOTE: This post was written back in 2012- and just republished again)
When I saw this wrapping paper storage & organization idea over on Pinterestt, I knew I had to give it a whirl! I had no idea exactly how easy it would be, but for a whopping $12.50 it was totally worth it for me. I love wrapping gifts and making the presentation special and unique – but I hate corralling my supplies from all corners of the house. Digging through closets and storage tubs takes a wee bit of the fun out of it. 🙂
That's why this bucket is a game changer!
The Caddy slips over the outside and grips the bucket tightly (So tightly I couldn't pry it off again when I tried to re-assemble the whole thing for a FB Live video) 😉
The tension rod inside the bucket holds rolls of ribbon that I like to wrap with. The pockets on the outside of the caddy are great for storing cute gift tags, scissors, tape, pens and markers, and more!
There's a place for everything and everything's in its place (I can't say that for everything in my house but at least I can for my wrapping paper supplies!)
Here's what you'll need if you'd like one 🙂
- 5 gallon paint bucket (You may have one lying around – but I found one at Home Depot for $2.50)
- Appollo Garden Tool ORganizer Caddy (Comes in Pink or Green!) or Fiskars Garden Bucket Caddy (I found mine at Home Depot for $6.98, a little cheaper but not quite as cute!)
- 8-12″ tension rod (look for these in the drapery or section at Home Depot or Lowe's – Lowe's was the only store in our area that carried them)
