Yet another dorky insta pic DIY...
I'm not sure exactly what to call this little guy....well other than marker bucket cause thats what I used it for. But I think I may make another one to put the railroaders t-shirt I bought him for valentines day in, instead of wrapping it in the traditional way ;)
|Frickin awesome right?!?! Go to passivejuicemotel on etsy and get yours!! They can order extended sizes even!!|
So the railroader, awesomely epic man that he is, brought me home this ginormous bag of bitchin markers. I mean HUGE, every color imaginable, badass art markers!! I was so excited I may have squealed like a pimple faced teenage girl at a New Kids on the Block concert ;) Oh wait......that was the 90's. LOL
And caffeine junky that I am, I had just emptied yet another creamer container (yup I drink enough to buy the costco bulk version of creamer) and thought why not use this to hold all these wonderful markers!! But I couldn't just leave it all dorky right? I had to dress it up, it was mandatory ;)
So out with the trusty wood grain contact paper, some masking tape, and some crafty beatch ingenuity.....
I popped the lid off and wrapped the bucket with the contact paper, smoothing as i went around and used a pocket knife (because i couldn't find my damn exacto knife) to trim the edges. And yes if you've read through any of my other dorky DIYs you'd see a definite pattern of me not being able to find shit and making do with some other ridiculous tool/supply. What can I say it's how I roll;)
I had the idea that I wanted it to look like a tree with a heart carving in it. And although I have enough washi tape to gag a cat, nothing really looked like "carving" color. Sooo eureka! regular old masking tape, perfect color, wrong size. So I just cut thin stripes to get what I wanted.
|Bonus! All the markers actually fit!!|
Okay okay so super easy and super dorky. I feel a little bad about even call it a DIY, but hey whatever. Go big or go home. Now go drink hoards of coffee, order yourself a shirt & stuff it in a bucket <3
