1. I started off with this disinfecting wipes container. They can be purchased at Target.
2. Remove the plastic outer label. You can leave it but the contact paper might not cover it completely. It was very simple to remove the label. It was plastic and not even glued onto the container. I just used some scissors to remove the label.
3. Finally measure how much contact paper you need, cut to the size, and stick onto the container. This final step took me under three minutes.
Cost breakdown: Free
Supplies: Empty container, contact paper, measuring tape (optional)
Review: Easy under ten minute project. You can't really go wrong with this project. I love it for the car because it really seals the smell of everything. I'm in the search for a large enough container to use as a diaper container that really seals off the smell of dirty diapers.
