This is the perfect solution for space saving! Just 4 supplies needed – Quick, simple and quite appealing! This will help create instant storage anywhere!

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete:25 minutes

Things you’ll need:
1 –7″ Round Paper Mache Box
1 –Mod Podge Hard Coat
3 package of1/4″ Unfinished Wood Dowel Rods
1 – FolkArt Home Decor White Adirondack Chalk Paint
Glue Gun and Glue sticks

Let’s grab your supplies, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!

Step 1 – Apply the Paint

To start, i grabbed the paint color of my choice and paint the paper mache box. Here i went with that white chalk paint. This allowed the paint to not be so shinny and more of the matte color. Apply 2 coats and let dry completely.

Now it may seem flimsy after painting, but after it dries completely, it will because hard again.

Step 2- Seal the paint

I came in with the Mod podge hard coat to seal the paint and the paper mache box itself.

Step 3 – Creating the Organizer

Once we got to this step, you had to figure out how high you want the organizer to be. I left the dowel rods in their neutral state.

I was able to find that my protein container worked great for the height and gave a nice flat surface on the bottom and top. About 8.5 inches high.

Once you have it leveled and even, start by hot gluing 3 dowel rods on each side. Use the Q-tip to help with the spacing between each rod.

* Now if you want to add more security to the dowel rods, apply a dot of gorilla glue on the surface of the dowel rod and then hot glue to allow it to hold while gorilla glue dries.

Once the 3 dowel rods on each side are completely dry, slowly remove the container out. If this is not removed at the beginning, then you might run into some issues later on trying to get it out.

Step 4 – Finishing the structure

Once Container is moved out and the side dowel rods are still in tack. Here is where you will finish the structure. Gluing all the dowel rods in place! Remember to use the Q-tip to help keep the same spacing between all rods.

Once all are in place and dried, you are ready to start using the organizer. Such a fun little projects that provides much character created by your own hands!! How beautiful did it turn out!!!

Step 1: Creating the bread

To start -Place the watering can on top of the grey faux fur. Carefully, cut a small square out – about 4.5 inches. Repeat this process with the white fur.

Step 2: Shaping the Bread

Grab the 2 square cutouts from the faux fur. Begin drawing the desired shape of the bread onto the material. The widest part will be approximately 3.5 inches a crossed. Then gradually cut inward for a rounded shape.

Step Three: Attaching

Take your hot glue and secure the bread on the front the of pail between the spout and the handle.

Step Four: Moss ribbon

Grab the moss ribbon and cut off a piece that is about 12 inches long.

Next – take that moss piece and cut it straight down. Depending the amount of moss you want to show, you can remove a strip that is approximately 1/2 to 1 inch. For this use, i cut off about a 1/2 inch from the moss.

Once you have the moss trim to the size of your liking, you will now secure it with hot glue around the top part of the pail.

(Take the ribbon through the inside of the handle.)

Step Five: Create you inside base for greenery

I grabbed a small Styrofoam cone laying around and cut off a small piece to hot glue in the inside center of the pail. This will allow you to to have a holder for your greenery stem allowing it to stay upright and in place.

Depending on the the grass spray, you may need to trim the stem back a bit. Then glue in place.

Step Six: Apply the nose

I used a 3/4″ wooden ball for the nose and glued it in place with the hot glue gun.

Step Seven: Add the Finishing Touches

Grab your succulent sprays and snip off a few for each gnome.

Each pail has a small little lip by the spout, which helped allow more space to glue the succulent buds in place.

Now you are able to enjoy your little creation. Add into your fairy gardens or place through your home to add that whimsical touch!
