For some reason, fall brings out the organizing bug in me. As soon as new school supplies and clothes make their way into my home, I get the urge to purge all of our junk to make room for the new. Maybe someday I will go full on Marie Kondo, but I’m not there yet. It’s all about baby steps. Now that we completely transformed my girls shared bedroom, I realized they desperately needed a way to organize their desk area. So, when I knew I needed some little organizing baskets, where did I turn to? You guessed it, the Dollar Tree! If you are new here, you might need to take a peek back at my Dollar Tree love affair. I grabbed some vintage fabric and covered these little baskets to make them perfect for my daughters’ desk.
It’s easy to update some Dollar Tree baskets with vintage fabric. All you need is some Mod Podge, scissors, vintage fabric and baskets. This is a great way to jazz up your drawer organization for just a few dollars!
DIY Organizing Baskets Using Vintage Fabric
All you need are a few supplies to cover some of your own Dollar Tree baskets to make the inside of a drawer a little happier.
Here’s what you will need:
- Small Baskets
- Fabric Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
Use the bottom of your basket as a guide to cut the shape of the fabric.
Brush on a thin layer of the Mod Podge.
Carefully place your cut fabric inside the organizing basket and brush on another layer of Mod Podge.
You may want to add a few layers of the Mod Podge to make these really durable. Allow to dry for about 12 hours and you are ready to go! You’ve gotta see how I have used Dollar Tree stuff to organize other areas of my home! I also dressed up some organizing bins for a totally different look. And I used some Dollar Tree hacks to organize our bathroom!
